Then is mine far better than talk?

Anyhow, for fun, I am practising mining a card trick here and I think I can do it but feels weird.

I think you've dug too far, tommy...could be an empty shaft.

If can write then you can draw as they say.

What are you mining for?

I am not sure what mean Pop. I have been reading this book on Clowning and there is a lot in it about mine, about Charlie Chaplin, Marcel Marceau etcetera and it got me wondering if I could perform card tricks that I normally use verbal patter for silently. It is an exercise and I just playing with a birds of feather Erdnase trick at the moment. In this lockdown, there is nobody here or about to mine it for and so I am going stir crazy. How does one do close up magic when one has got to keep one's distance anyhow? :)

I was teasing you. Pantomime. Mime. Mining is not miming. :)

The real Prof Bosco ended up in Aston Birmingham; it is a small world.

I saw the Beatles there.
