Enjoyed your respect for Senor Wences. Jim Adams of www.jamesandtheprofessor.org said that Senor Wences lived to be 105 (if I recall) and was in a nursing home in Jim's vicinity, but he didn't know it. He found out later that was the case and that Senor Wences would love to have had ventriloquists come by and talk shop.
We have about 3 octogenarians who keep a monthly magic club going for us in town. They are walking encyclopedias of where tricks originated (even the ones we think we invented!) and how to put card moves together.
So, if you know an older magician, puppeteer, or ventriloquist, don't be afraid to call them and ask if you could meet with them. I think they would love it! However, I may be putting words in their mouth! That's my job.
