Rousing the spirits

Last Wednesday I had the great pleasure of having my 50th birthday dinner in the Magic Castle's Houdini Seance Room. The magnificent Misty Lee conducted our seance, and I'm happy to report that contact was made! Was it Houdini? Well, something returned, because that room went nuts!

Below is some of the latest Houdini Seance swag that comes with the evening, including a very nice new Houdini Seance coin. Between the menus you can see the current Houdini Seance button.

Thanks to Misty Lee, the Magic Castle, and all my friends and family. A magical evening indeed. (Photo by Hocus Pocus Focus.)



  1. Congratulations. Many happy returns.

  2. Another great celebration at the Castle. As the photo can attest, a lively time was had by all. Did Harry return? You'll have to find out for yourselves. I encourage everyone to visit the Magic Castle when in Los Angeles. As for me... I'm still hungover.

  3. Having been some days in preparation
    A splendid time is guaranteed for all
    And tonight Mr. C is topping the bill

  4. Congratulations;

    1. Good friends and family. My friend Callie (to my right) suggested we do a "goofy" picture after we did a serious one. Came out great. That's the pic everyone likes best.

  5. What's going on with those 6 little wooden boxes lined up on the table? Were they filled with snuff?

    1. They were decorative. They had our names propped up in each lid.
