I'm Kerry Sokira from Ingersoll Ont. Can. I just came here to read and maybe talk if you want about the life and memories of my grandfather Sid Johnson ( Sid Lorraine ). It's wonderful to read some of the experiences and memories you have of grandpa.

Welcome ksokira,

Are you a Magician as well?

Sorry, I have no personal experiences or memories of Sid but I'm sure there are some here who did.

I do use a slop shuffle and I used to do Troublewit so I may have also have used some of Sid's lines.

I'm big into Rope Magic so I've enjoyed Sid's art work.

We stand on the shoulders of Giants.

Hi Mary...thank-you for the nice welcome. No I'm not a magician but I absolutely love watching all kinds.

I guess I have a different view point sometimes having been exposed to behind what most don't see or realize.

I hope that I'm not imposing here because I'm not in the business. You are all giants to me.

It's a pleasure

Hi Kerry! Sid, and Bruce Posgate were very good friends! We only met once per year (at the Abbott Get Together, in Colon, Michigan) but, it was an annual "reunion" that we all looked forward to!

Welcome to our motley crew!

I used to make a pilgrimage to Abbott's in Colon, Michigan every two years and absolutely loved all of Sid Lorraine's stuff! What a grandfather to have! Welcome to the Café, and I will start looking in my messy collections for some Tops magazine articles about him.
