Storytelling Sunday

 Paultons Park Aug 2004.

Harry was five years old. He was sitting with his brother Jack who was just 2, watching a magic show, when the clown needed an assistant. The clown scoured a huge crowd and invited Harry to join him on stage. We stood watching with Stanley who was 4 months old. Harry had us and the clown in fits of laughter I can still remember the tears running down my cheeks (another layout and another story).

Some three years later at a caravan park on Hayling Island a familiar clown was entertaining a crowd of children with his magic show. This time Stanley was called to help assist him on stage. 

For Sian's Story telling Sunday I managed to locate the photos and put some words onto paper.
 
and after all these years I am glad I did.

  1. You obviously have a couple of born entertainers in your family. What a coincidence and how fortunate that you had photos of both occasions.
