Somebody asked when did I start clowning and I replied,
“The day I was born. I tried to be born seat first!”
And in this picture, you can see, I was born to entertain!”
The photo above was taken in early 1941. I am in the process of updating these pages.

Crystal summer 1993, Fort Worth

Crystal in Fort Worth, Texas summer of 1992. Crystal delivered the sermon at all three morning worship services at Genesis United Methodist Church. Other credits: retirement centers, Delta Airlines, grand openings, superchurch, jail ministry, and in several states. Crystal also does a communion service that is totally awesome. Who is Crystal? Why my alter ego! Better a fool for Christ than man’s fool.
