The last magic act
that Mr. Marvel  and Margie
performed together
did not go well.
It did not go well
at all.
Now Margie,
who had been the
perfect magician's assistant,
was only half the woman
she used to be.
When he started 
 she tried to tell him
that she wasn't
ready but he had
already started sawing..
It made her sick
just to think
about it.
Feeling guilty,
he had sent her
to all the specialists
in the world
to no avail.
she preferred to spend
her time in the
healing waters of
Maugoo-Maugoo Bay.
The locals
this waterfall pool
produced many miracles.
Sometimes when she
looked down
she could almost
swear she saw legs..
but then would realize
that it was 
only a mirage.
She was certainly hoping
for a miracle
because she was getting
tired of pushing herself
around on the skateboard
that Mr. Marvel had rigged
up for her.
The worst part was that
he had a new
assistant and
she was sure
there was a whole
different type of
magic happening
while she was

I am on the road today
and will check in soon.
Have a good day
and I hope you got your 
right here!!!

I can see why they're relationship was short lived.

Well, that's only half the story, isn't it? LOL... great one Diana, have a blessed day!

Susan Freeman said...

Okay ~ this made me smile and giggle too! I have always wondered how that sawing a woman in half trick is done. They make it look so real, but I know it's not. Or is it??? Safe travels my friend <3

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

It would appear that her better half was spared. She still looks lovely.
Be careful out on those winter roads and have a wonderful time away~

Nonnie said...

She's definitely the better half of the partnership. What a dirty bum. Maybe her dad should get out his sawed off shotgun.

Missy George said...

She still has the better half it seems..Thanks for the smile..Travel safely..
