Re: Legacy Malini Egg Bag

I totally forgot I posted this. If anyone is interested I have reduced the price to $50.00. I paid full price for it, used it a few times in the show, great bag. Very well made. It's just not the right fit for me. Thanks.

Hmmm....Perhaps a new trick all together. (Force?) First king (Elvis?) Then spell to the REAL KINGS (Freddy, Albert and BB). Just a thought. This trick wouldn't be as appealing with Yngwie Malmsteen.

Re: Astrometaphysics

Bad Sign = Albert King.

Spell A-L-B-E-R-T and turn over the card that falls on T.

Or Albert King who was famous for playing a 59' Gibson Flying V.

Spell G-I-B-S-O-N. Turn over card that falls on N.

I like this trick!
