I think I am going bonkers. I thought I just read an article where John was featured on the cover of a magic magazine. Any help please???

He's coming to Denver this week and I am very excited to see him.

I recall reading a pretty good sized article on him recently, but don't recall the cover. I'll have to go dig through my pile of magazines and look.

I've been doing this, and I think we are at the same point! John is 97? years old and has a gig in London when he turns 100.

I hope I can make it that far.

Is that how he is getting around? Well, I'll find out soon. I'm thinking that it was a Linking Ring issue, but I sorted through mine again and can't find it.

I searched and searched and found him on the August 2004 Linking Ring. I can't find my August 2008 issue - can anyone check to see if he is profiled there?

Yep. Him and his wife, just trucking along in a big RV. He lectured here in San Francisco not too long ago and he was great! You'll enjoy seeing one of our living legends...

Are you by any chance thinking of "Conversation with Calvert" by John Calvert in the Sept. 2008 TLR?
Message: Posted by: Joe McIntyre (Dec 7, 2008 08:12AM)
Try Aug 2008 TLR.

Bingo - The August 2008 Linking Ring. Now that I had the date, I searched for my lost issue. Perfect - Thanks.

Does John still have an aversion to guys wearing earrings?
Message: Posted by: disneywld (Dec 7, 2008 05:22PM)
Did he?

He told me he would kick my ass if I didn't take it out when he chose me as a volunteer.

Interesting. Well after all this, I was unable to make the lecture. It would have been a 60-mile drive in a blizzard. Next time??

The Conversations with Calvert article in Linking Ring seems to be a regular monthly item now.

And if you're a smoker, just do yourself a favor and, if he asks you, JUST LIE! :rotf:

Better yet, follow his example! we should all be so lucky, to live so long and still be able to do what we love.
