I always liked the Piddingtons response when asked if their powers were real. They used to say, "You can be the judge". Maurice Fogel thought it sounded almost apologetic. I don't think it did at all.

One of my most valued memories of attending The Los Angeles Conference on Magic History, was being able to meet and speak with her. Listening to her later discuss her career that weekend, was amazing.

I will always value my copy of her book that she signed for me.

A few years ago, there was a FANTASTIC story about The Piddingtons and their act on NPR. Contributors include Penn Jillette and Jim Steinmeyer. Give this a listen....
