We saw a GREAT magician show last night!

Thursday morning while listening to our local radio station, our favorite DJ Joe Flood interviewed a young man who was presenting two shows at our restored Lincoln Theater here in town on Saturday, August 29th. He is a magician named Sterling Dietz who has only been practicing the art for four years but recently was the overall winner in the World Teen Magician contest in Las Vegas! He is 18 years old and just this summer graduated from Lynden Washington High School, a town just a few miles north of us near the Canadian border. We both thought that sounded interesting so Pat called and asked for two tickets near the front where we could see pretty well. We decided to go the the show at 19:00 rather than the afternoon show, and she got two in the center section, seats 1 and 2, row A which is right in the front. You couldn't get better seats!

The show was phenomenal! This young man has a great stage presence, works very well with his audience (of all ages) and really seems to know his craft. The show does include others, especially one main assistant, and involves music and dance a bit. He has a website that has a lot more about him including a short video. Take a look and remember, he is just 18 years old now.

I didn't even try to take my camera as I know it isn't right to take photos of these where you can freeze time and look in great detail at what he is doing, so I only have a scanned copy of his poster that he autographed for Pat & I and a scanned image of my ticket. If you ever have the chance to go see Sterling perform his magic, GO!!!!!

Here is my ticket.

We have been busy over the last two weeks, including attending another melodrama play last weekend at the RiverBelle Dinner Theater. I do have photos from that performance but haven't yet had the time to get them ready to post. Hopefully soon. We also have been making some changes that will affect our future lifestyle. More about that later, too. In the meantime, enjoy what is left of summer. We are enjoying pretty nice weather right now and it looks like it may well continue at least for another month.

I watched the vidio and you are right he is wonderful and so cute.I would love to see him in person.
 
I bet you did have a great time!

Have a great week

Glad y'all had a good time. I don't know that I've ever seen a live magic show, only those on TV.

A new car, eh? And some lifestyle changes....Very interesting.

Hope you and Pat have a great new week. :o)

Love and hugs,

Diane
 
Dear Dick and Pat,
Thank you for attending my show on Saturday. I had a great time, and from reading your blog it seems you did also. YOu can see many of my videos on my website along with a search on www.youtube.com just search under Sterling Dietz magic. Until we meet again, take care.
Sincerely,
Sterling
 
Looks like a fun show! As for the lifestyle changes, after your comments on my blog I'm dying to know where life is leading you both. I hope you have a great week!
 
Not only is he cute, it would seem he is an excellent business man!

Sounds like a lot of fun and I'm anxious to hear about your changes.
 
Hi Dick, sorry it's been so long since I've visited here ... and I'm also very sorry I didn't visit here on your birthday the other day. Hope you had an amazing day. Hope life is treating you and Pat well. Sending hugs and best wishes from Australia ... regards, Connie
 
Hey Dick....

Long time no see! I was in the neighborhood and thought I would drop in. Good to see everything is going well for you and the bride. It has really been a while.

Still taking great photographs I see. I always enjoyed your photographs and those are good shots of the stage play.

Later for sure....Alan G
