I am Larry Seymore. I have enjoyed magic since I was 12 years old. I am now 72. Retired 3 times in my life(Qwest Communications, US Post Office, and Oregon Army National Guard Musician). In the 60's, I was in the Army playing music on Fairbanks AK. When the band performed in schools, I became "Silly Seymore" the magical clown to warmup the kids for concerts. That led to a gig as the official Alaska State Fair Clown in 1970 just before I mustered out of the Army. Also did USO type shows for the isolated missile sites in Northern Alaska as well. Both magic shows and in the stage band(sax and clarinet player. S.A.M. 59 member(President 3x), Portland Society of Magicians(Sgt at Arms and VP once). First famous magician I saw was Mandrake in Alaska as a kid when my dad was stationed in Anchorage AK in the Air Force. I am happy to be part of this caring and sharing community. Thank you for inviting me to be part of this family of charming and fun loving caballeros.

Hi Larry

Welcome to the Forum.  Your history would be worthy of a memoir - I'd like to hear some stories from the USO shows. 

Mandrake was one of the first magicians I saw perform live also.

Welcome aboard Larry...

I'm 71, so just behind you in that regard, and was also a musician in what seems like another lifetime (Guitar).. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here.
