Thanks for the nice comments, Bill. I will be working the WC Fields Bar this week at the Magic Castle--April 1-3. Hope to see everyone.

I am also very honored to report that I have been nominated for both Stage and Close-Up awards this year at the Magic Castle, though I don't have much expectation of winning either award--the competition this year is the toughest I've seen. Should be a great banquet and show on May 1st at the Henry Fonda Theater.

By the way, the old street guys in the thirties often used to make their peas from pencil erasers. It is easier to cut them into shape with rounded eyebrow scissors. These peas never wear out, and work on any surface. If I didn't have the Perfect Pea, which was designed to duplicate the advantages of these, I would use the pencil eraser peas myself.

Actually, the real old-timers made their peas out of...

... and I'm not kidding here...

... equine ejaculate.

I don't even want to think about the method of collection.

I know that the shell game does not need a lot of patter, but, if you use this kind of ball the ideas just seem to keep flowing ( was going to use another word there but just thought it was in bad taste )also it would be a good way to stop people trying to examine the pea...

I promise I will not ask when the S>F>S notes on the 3
shell game will be finished
