I thought I'd post this here.
Just because its more appropriate
than any where else...

And several of you know my who
my parents are.

Well I just want you to all know
that they just celebrated 33 years of
marriage.

Why is this sooooooo amazingly magical?

How they met, at the folk dance. My dad was
with Frances' brother and my mom with her
best friend. And her cousin's husband and
my father already knew each other from fishing,
years earlier. So he was pre-approved from her
side of the family.
(the infamous "louie louie" story)


Jay thought my mom should not marry my father.
He's difficult and well, for those who know my dad
he's a hard ass.

Frances was very happy that he was getting married.

My parents got married at Chapel in the Sky, in downtown
Chicago. The same place Blackstone,Sr married for the
3rd time. He had to get married there because of
Blackstone being a mentor/father figure to him.

The chapel seated 40 people max, they did not send
any wedding invitations and the place was packed with
friends and a few of my mom's family.

They had their "reception" at the Drake at Mayor's Row (sp?)
where the Round Table would meet. Frances popped for
the Champagne Brunch I guess.

They are still married and my dad's is thankful and
greatful because my mom his is #1 assistant in magic
and in life.

Every year he calls Jay and tells him that he still
married to the same woman...and that its now XXyears.

I know that many of you have seen my dad since his
stroke 6+ years ago. I want to be able to update
all you on his progress and its a way for us to
all connect since we don't travel to any of the
conventions right now. We miss seeing you all,
especially for those of you who are still alive (haha).
And I know you all enjoy my little musing of what
goes on in the "HOUSE OF LOUIE".

our cute little funny chinaman.

Hello

I have many happy memories of your Dad and the Chicago Magic Scene in the 60's 70's and early 80's.

I was saddened to learn of Jay's current health situation. I'll say a special prayer for all "the olde timers".
