April Fool's Day


It's April 1st and that means April Fool's Day. If you came here expecting me to be participating in this month's Water theme then I've either fooled you or disappointed you.

This post originally showed a photo of a local magician. Although taken quite legally and with verbal permission I have since been informed that the artist's agent now owns his image and I will be sued if I do not remove it. I can't be doing with the hassle so have removed it - it's his loss not mine.

If you still want to see the Water theme, step back in time to Old Hyde.

Seems like he has a couple of tricks to keep the people engaged for a while.

BTW, great guess!!

I thought that he was a priest on initial view.

I was sure you'd snuck a glass of water in there somewhere. I refuse to be an April Fool, I'll blow it up pixel by pixel till I find it!

Sure he's no fool, but I bet he fools many with his magic. Clever twist for theme day.
