Beach Blanket Bingo

Grab your suntan lotion, umbrella, beach chair and sunglasses; in just a few days, I'll be taking my first vacation in five years! My wife, Betty, surprised us all by renting a beach house in Monterey Dunes in Northern California. We did this about five years ago (the last vacation I took), and it was a great time. The house is right on the beach, so all we have to do is walk out the back door and we are there! All my kids will be going, and we'll probably take a side trip over to Santa Cruz and cruise the Boardwalk. It will be great just sitting on the beach with nothing to do but relax. No cell phones, no laptop; nothing but the ocean waves to soothe me.

Thanks for all the emails about last week's blog about Magic Heroes. It was great to read many of your letters and stories shared.

Mark your calendars! We've set a date for the 2nd Annual Hocus Pocus Magic Swap Meet & Get-Together, and we've already begun booking the talent. I don't want to give away too much, but if this year's numbers from the first one were any indication, this one will blow that one away! We got so many positive and exciting comments about the last one that we can't wait to host the next one. Even though it may seem early to you, mark your calendars for Saturday, January 19th, 2008. More details will follow but one thing's for sure: SECURE THE DATE!

So next week, there will be no blog but it will resume the week after. Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Until next time,
