Hello from your old neighbor...

I'm getting weird emails lately:

"Hi Whit, C*** here, your old neighbor from Camino Palmero. Sorry, that we lost touch. How are you and Nancy? Are you still performing at the Magic Castle? I haven't been there since Billy moved over to Crescent Heights and was very sorry to read online one day that he had passed on. He will always have a special place in my heart.

A friend of mine's family is coming into town March 22nd, and she would love to take them to the Magic Castle that weekend for dinner and to see some of the wonderful performances. Since I don't know any other members anymore, I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to go about it. I assume you still have to be invited by a member?

I would love to hear from you. My computer is down at the moment, so I can only be reached by phone (am on a friend's PC right now). When you call please be sure to leave your phone number, since my Caller ID is not working right.

Be well and best wishes,


What's that all about? Also this one:

"To whom this may concern, I am a part of Relay for life a fundraising cancer organization, here at University of Michigan Flint and before I go into detail about the event, I was wondering if I had the right email and if your availability coincided with our event (march 22-23) and we were hoping if we could get you to come down and donate your time if possible and give a show for perhaps an hour or so. Is this the magician Dave J Castle? If at all possible or if you have any questions please feel free to contact as soon as possible
Thank you,"

"Whit" could possibly be Whit (aka Pop) Haydn.

It was also a thought of mine, but why do I get the email?

Also the second one. David Castle, seriously.... this is the one magicians I wish would stop doing magic at all.

Tell them you will do the gig if they pay for your travel.

Well, I can connect the two with a google search using castle and magic, but I'm stumped at where you come into the picture.
