My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies… Pardner!

Strange Magic / Electric Light Orchestra

Many years ago my niece Sarah made a small figurine for me. I called him Wizard. Wizard accompanied me on my many trips and moves – quietly gracing my desktop. But in my journeys, he also took a heck of a beating.
I lost his Crystal Ball (shameful!) and broke his Magic Staff (doh!).
These are two really bad things for a Wizard.
A Wizard without his Crystal Ball and Magic Staff is like a soldier without a rifle. Almost useless.
Something had to be done! Wizard needed to be fixed.
I sent out the call to Sarah:
Please fix Wizard! 

Sarah immediately responded, expressing astonishment that I still had Wizard at all!! after all these years!
She then determined to go beyond merely repairing Wizard and would create a whole new Wizard for me!
I didn’t expect such a generous offer! But happily accepted. 

A week and a half later Wizard 2 arrived in the mail:

Look how Wondrous he is!!!
Amazing!!!

Thank You Sarah!

Wiz 2 is substantially bigger than Wiz 1!
And I discovered something magical about Wiz 2:
When I went into my office the next – and before I turned on the light …
This is what I saw! : 

Wiz 2’s Crystal Ball shines in the dark!!!

I don’t how Sarah pulled that off, but it’s really cool.

I’m not about to abandon Wiz 1 though.
I now realize I can fix him myself.
All I need to do is to find a Magic Staff and a new Crystal Ball. 
Hmmm …

Something like this:
I wonder if I can find a Crystal Ball that shines in the dark also??
We’ll see. 

The Staff might take some searching
But I’m optimistic

I’ll keep you posted.
