Ellinas Posted January 20, 2019 Share Posted January 20, 2019 Mrs E and I have just returned from a trip to a care home to visit her elderly aunt. The undeniably sad part is that she is immobile (her legs don't work any more) and is in a home largely geared towards dementia patients, despite being sharp of mind herself - not ideal surroundings for her. But... This elderly aunt, a long-time fundamentalist Christian of the "old school" (no television, never go to the cinema, no entertainment beyond singing a hymn or two, wouldn't allow a pack of playing cards in the house - you get the picture) was very worried the other evening when the activities at the home involved a magic show. She was also very relieved when she found an excuse to go to her room instead. "After all", she told us, "you never know what people are dabbling in, do you?" Well, stuffed rabbits, bunches of fake flowers and a couple of top hats, probably. Though I don't think my suggesting that has altered her fear of conjuring tricks at all. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
