"If he wants to play in Vegas, he's got to put in the time. At least ten years."

Trixx was on the road, in Waupaca, a small town in northern Wisconsin, when he was told of Mago George's prediction. "Ten years," he said, "I've got ten years. I'm doing this for the rest of my life."

Trixx conceded the DVD wasn't going to Letterman and Leno just yet. "I'm going to do it again," he said. McBride had e-mailed him with a more detailed critique, suggesting improvements. "There will be no more smoking tricks."

In the meantime, he was prepping for a return to the Keys. It'll be year number eight; the usual gigs were in place. He was thinking about other places to live.
