Friday Follies

video

This is my young friend Caleb A. practicing for his future position as Circus Fire-eater. I believe he's slowly working up to 'flaming torch swallowing'! I plan to send him a supply of 'edible' burn ointment:)

GAWD Mike, you bring a tear to a proud ol' Granny's eye....He proudly announced to me it was 15 matches and only burned a small part of the corner of his mouth the first time he tried it...makes me wonder how many times it took him to perfect it?...
And to think I accused him of wasting his summer away...Geez, how could I???
:)

It only took those 2 tries. It was 2 because as Linda said I burnt the corner of my mouth the first attempt to put them in. I actually have done 18 now so I am advancing. I'd practice but somebody won't let me do it...

Good trick, Caleb. Good for what, I don't know.
Linda, tell him to cool it (hehehehehe) now, before he burns that handsome nose off that handsome face.
Have you tried to teach him the one where you rotate one hand in front of you clockwise and the other one counter-clockwise? At least there's no fire involved with that one.....

Wow that is amazing! Good luck Caleb! Hey Mike!

Amazing, sort of reminds me of the first time I deep fried a turkey, which was also when I learned you could live a long time without arm hair & eyebrows. It just proves the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

It's a neat thing to have a smile that lights up a room. Great trick.
