We've been playing 'small' townes lately,... avoiding stress(!),.
ha,...
The past weekend, in Hildesheim, we were turning our tricks,
had a good feel,
the folks were with us,.;..
in the first 'high-light',
a guy pushing a cart,
white dog sitting in,..
'blind-man shades',
selling 'newspapers',.. "for the poor",..
claims to be "blinded, in the line of duty",.. (ex-fireman).

oK.

,but then he sits,.
in the middle,..
parking-brake on,..
refuses to leave...

oK.

We pack it up,
push on.
Fifteen minutes later,
new Show,.
new spot,
new success,..
,old Story.
hmm.
,sits again, in the middle of our circle.
,..the Show disintegrates.

oK.

we pack again.
,but before leaving,
I ask the chap, "What's up?"
He smiles,... "50. Euros,.. I stay away."

Beating a blind man, in public,..(?),
it WAS tempting..(!),
we packed up and played the smaller streets,.
...fewer folks,
harder Shows,..
no choice,..
work(!).
At the day's end, we pushed it home,....
a looooong hard day.

After THAT day, the whole push,..
seemed UP hill.
Two kilometers out of towne,..
we were beat.

. . . . . . . . . . . . .. .. .. .. . . . . . . .. . .

Who do we see,..
drinking a beer, with a buddy,....
not the slightest bit blind(!),
in a Café by our parking lot?,..!?
{Who SEES us?,..!!?}
"Blind Willie"!
https://flic.kr/p/pgD2aM
{,he's sitting left, in the foto.}
,..he was happy to see me(!)..
and my camera!!
https://flic.kr/p/pgD2gt
,first one came to say "hi".

https://flic.kr/p/pgD2gP
Then, they thought to hide,..
https://flic.kr/p/pgD2kX
,..behind their Umbrella(!),
(,..I had to laugh myself!)
((,..I knew I wasn't dealing with Magicians here....))

Then they got a bit more serious...
https://flic.kr/p/pgD2m8
,..left hand first,..
then a right hook,..
https://flic.kr/p/pgD2qg
,..he punched the Camera(!!),
ouuuch!!
https://flic.kr/p/pgDMQu
,..he walked back,..
grumbling,..
and holding his fist!

,...I went down..
https://flic.kr/p/pgG3GY

I laid on the ground 'til the Police came.

I laid on the ground 'til an Ambulance came.

Monika shook her head,..
and said
"... it was probably one of the stupidest thing I've every done."

,hmm,..I would do it again.

gallagher 'blue-eye' hayes

p.s.: My 'buddys' swore they never touched me.
,about 50 witnesses, were 'blind as well'..."didn't see a thing."
,...two kids filmed it all with their handys,...
My 'friend and helpers', the Police,... still didn't want the hassle...
took everybodies names,..
asked us to shake hands,..
I refused.
No "hero's happy-end",..
,tomorrow,
a new towne.

So this "blinde" guy punched you for making photos of him?...........

sounds like you handled yourself well....you could have had a fight and things would have gone different.....

its easy to say "I would have beat him up later"....but that could have made things worse....

Print your pics so,
if he shows up tomorrow,..
you can show the audience..
HE IS FAKING? Smile Smile
Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.

Follow him around with a sign while he's selling his newspapers with a sign that says "He's not really blind."
(if he is really blind, he won't know)

And then tell him for 50 euros you'll go away.
