135 Pounds & Counting!

I want to thank all of you who have noticed the updated pictures here on the blog and have written and called me to congratulate me on my recent weight loss. Currently I have lost 135 lbs. with only 20 more to go before I reach my goal! I've never felt better, and I have more energy now than when I was a teenager. Thanks again for noticing; it really means a lot to me.

My lucky son, Max, left for Hawaii Tuesday morning with one of his best friend, Spencer, and his family. They had a four-hour layover in Los Angeles, which delayed their flight, however the exciting part is that one of the cast members from the television show Jackass was waiting for the same flight. Max just about fainted when he recognized Chris Pontius, AKA Party Boy, and he took several photos and had him autograph his wallet! Max was so excited that he called us twice to tell us all about it. I spoke to him last night and he enjoyed the day snorkeling. He'll be back in a week, and I'm sure I'll have more stories to tell you then.

On the web site, you may have noticed a virtual FLOOD of new products and exclusives. I haven't been this excited since last Christmas about these new items! The first one that really caught my attention was Toasted, another great Paul Romhany effect that he has been using in his act for the past 6 years. It's got everything: entertainment, comedy, and audience participation, and I highly recommend you check it out on the web site.

Robert Baxt will be here next week to film his brand new DVD to be included in a new effect that we will be releasing in the coming weeks. We're very excited about this project and we believe you will be as well! This is an effect that Robert has used in his act for many years. It's a unique and new twist on an old standard, updated as only Robert Baxt can do it! That's all I can tip you now, but stay tuned to the web site for more information soon.

The temperatures have finally dropped from the triple digits to double digits, and it is much more comfortable. However, I don't expect it to last too long as we are still in the middle of Summer, and there are promises of higher temperatures to come. If you live back East, our sympathies are with you; you've got what we just had!

So, it will be just Betty and me this weekend as all the kids are gone. Maybe it's time to finally go out to a movie, go out to dinner, or all of the above! Whatever you decide to do this weekend, have fun and enjoy yourself.

Until next time,

Congratulations on your weight loss! I never realized how tough it could be to loose weight until my doctor told me I needed to drop about 25lbs. JUST 25!

And you're at 140 and counting. What an accomplishment! That's awesome!
