Wordless Wednesday with a Bit of Words!

by Migdalia Rivera

One day, as the boys and I walked down the street we encountered a crowd…


then a  “ringmaster” (shown above to the right) and a  performer … 


he claimed he could swallow that sword in his hand. He winked, he was so bold!


I thought for sure he would chicken out but alas he didn’t! See that girl on the side, I think my jaw dropped even lower!


But he didn’t stop there, he even set the sword on fire!

Notice the last picture was a bit blurry … ummm that was my fault. The camera became unsteady as I was getting ready to hit the floor!  Thankfully Big K caught me ;)


Happy WW!

I’ve never mastered the art of sword swallowing–not that I’ve really ever practiced…;o)

@ Hootin’ Anni: I loved it! I collect pictures of hearts too so I had to show my boys =) Happy WW!

@ octamom: I’m glad you haven’t LOL I thought it was a trick at first but he turned and let us look inside. I was so stunned I forgot to take the pic!
