Hi all! Smile

I wanted to share this with you. You probably know my situation, if you have read my posts. In 2010, I lost everything I own, more than 10 grand worth of radio studio equipment, collectibles and four trunks of Magic I have collected since I was seventeen. I'm 57 today, so 40 years worth! It was a surprise house foreclosure. I was in the street in 24 hours!

Well, last week, a friend called me. He was the owner of the house in question. I had rented it from him. After the foreclosure, he collected what he could before the bank shut the house up. He said he found some boxes and trunks he thought might be mine. They were full of some kind of Props. He wondered if it was the Magic I had. YES!

He just sent me the first box. It had my Magic Hands briefcase. It holds ALL my gaff coins, half dollars, Ike Dollars, Viking Brass items, Bill Tube, 3-Ring Circus, various gaffed decks, and my two Clarence Miller hand-made wooden items, one of which is The Little Box, and Miller's locking Lippencott Box! I could never replace those!

I told him to trash the trunks, and box up the items in smaller boxes. They are on their way! I don't know if I am going to get everything back, but I am SO thankful for what I am getting back, I am almost speechless! My prayers were answered! I am blown away. I could not imagine this...I just wanted to share with you, my friends in magic! Smile

I talked to him last night. Another box was shipped! Real magic is right, Michael. Remember I said miracle after miracle has happened to me? This is another example. I am truly blessed! I could not have predicted this. My friend Mitch thought enough to clean out my bedroom closet. He loaded his car FULL and headed back to Dade City.

He said this has all been in storage, and he cleaned out the storage locker, and there was my stuff. At first he thought it was a box of toys, but he saw my silks, and recognized it was magic tricks! Then he knew it was all my stuff. I can't wait to see what is in this next box. He said he is going to send me 5 or 6 big boxes in all...

Two of those boxes arrived today! OMG! I had completely forgotten about a lot of these. My gosh...

The John Kennedy Power Reel! This was 100 bucks. I used it once at The Lani Kai on Fort Myers Beach. This thing is AWESOME!

John Cornelius' "Instant Pro Card To Wallet". This thing works automatically! I also have the Keith Bennett "Card To Hip Wallet". This is ingenious in it's own right! I gotta work on these.

The Viking-Haenchen Original "Kineti-Key Jr". I have never seen anything like this. A precision piece, to be sure!

Magic Maker's "Brass Block In The Matchbox Penetration". Yep, just like the big, new one released recently. Just as effective, too! Jaw-dropping!

Silks! OMG...I have to buy an iron! LOL!

It sure is, JL...I thought all this was lost for good! I was tossed out of that house in 24 hours, and was arrested the next day when I went back to retrieve my stuff. The cop could have charged me, but let me go. Mitch later when in and cleaned out what would fit in his car. I did not know about this.

Then my recent surprise email and phone call! Wow!

I love hearing great news and how Karma just works it's own magic. Sometimes life deals an Ace without sleight of hand! That is really cool to me. It gives me personal inspiration I need right now. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm happy for you, man.

Doug, I just found this thread tonight. I had no idea you were going through such bad times but I'm glad to hear things are turning around for you. I could read the excitement in your voice! Good for you. I wish you all the best.
