The Wizard of Christchurch (and New Zealand)

This is the Wizard – he’s a Christchurch institution. I’d not seen him in the Square for a long time – probably years, as according to Wikipedia (source of all knowledge) he now spends most of his time in Oamaru and speaks in the Square between 1 and 2pm from November to Easter. Fair enough, as he’s 78 and he’s earned a rest!

    So nice to see him again – the stepladders look new.

    Wow, he’s still about. Does he still have the VW car, I wonder, with two fronts joined together… Lovely to see him 🙂

    That’s quite the “getup” he’s wearing!

    Nicky – check today’s blog post – it’s the VW!
    Leif – he’s actually looking conservative compared to his normal get up of black pointy hat and matching gown. It was very hot that day, so the tunic may have been cooler.

    I saw him ten years ago and he looks much younger now!

    Such agelessness is wasted on the male of the species – moreso if you are a wizard and age gives one gravitas …
