The Amazing Mr. J performs magic for a childhood hero, the man behind Sesame Street’s Big Bird & Oscar the Grouch, who is retiring after 50 years. (Caroll Spinney’s Dad is also from New Brunswick!) He gave me an actual Big Bird feather, a gift to treasure forever. (October 2018):

The Amazing
   Mr. J ON

Y'know, Christopher Lloyd turns 83 today! Did you love him on Taxi? Since the laugh-packed, loveable Lloyd is also famous for a certain time-travelling role, let's look back: being born in 1938 means a world before World War 2, before Marvel and Batman, before colour television...and over a decade before Canada could call our wonderful Newfie friends our own! Times were tough and tumultuous...but also terrific. (Kinda like NOW!!) 😀🎩❤👍If you had a DeLorean, would you go back? To a perceived personal 'golden age?' Maybe for a visit, of course! But here's to the MAGIC to be found in ALL eras, and here's to YOU... enjoying yourself a fantastic Fall weekend. May you soak up the splendour!🍁🍂🍃"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: IT GOES ON."-Robert Frost (MR. J would also ADD the following three words: "IT'S ALL GOOD!")😀🎩❤👍MR.

Hope YOU personally had a Magical weekend, despite the wild weather! Remember, the rainbow is hidden inside the storm. ❤️ Quick story: Can you Imagine this? You're invited to a massive meal while hearing hearty high seas fishing adventures...catching a record-size, prize tuna, despite a HUUUUUGE STORM at sea! (These entertaining yarns were wonderfully weaved by Chief Alvery Paul of Esgenoôpetitj First Nation, Burnt Church, in Northern NB...after performing Magic for The Chief's Grandson). Giving thanks and making the long drive back to NS through torrential rain, you feel like you're in your own submarine (!), driving to perform more Magic Shows in the Bedford and Bridgewater area. While bringing your many Magic cases inside there, you are personally pounded by the drenching deluge. You can hardly hear your happy hosts, as the powerful precipitation proceeds. Would the kids respond to a Soaking-wet Sorcerer? Would they even be able to concentrate on your conjuring, over the driving din of the downpour? You bet your Magic Rabbit! Check out the picture, and this kind review about your friendly neighbourhood Water-soaked Wizard:"Thank you again for making Victoria’s 4th Birthday Party such an amazing time. All the parents talked about how AWESOME you were, and your energy is excellent. Kids had a blast!" -Katie & Jeff Millard, Bedford, NSMay YOU also always find the Laughter in the rain, and the Treasure in the tempest, Magic Friends! "The storm is an artist; the rainbow is its masterpiece." - Matshona Dhliwayo.MR.
