I have always like magicians. I mean really liked them. I never actually wanted to be a magician, but I was always fascinated by them. I came across the name Fetaque (pronounced Fee-Take) Sanders and now I am searching for information on him. Fetaque Sanders was an American of African descent magician who toured with the USO during WWII. He performed for the black troops in the then segregated Armed Forces. After WWII he made his living by performing at black schools. Here are some posters featuring him. Some more information on Mr. Sanders.

I leave you with a bit of autumnal splendor.

Have a good weekend and a wonderful holiday.
