That's a great trick, and it is described in the Chronicles. The history is interesting. In fact, I got my walnuts from Ron Bauer, who was close to Milt Kort, who showed Vernon, etc., etc. The ones I have are at least 40 years old, and as good as new. I have done the trick maybe a dozen times for audiences, but played with it hundreds of times for my own pleasure. I didn't know that you could get the walnuts again! Where/who has them? I only have two, and would love a couple more as back ups. In fact, people have asked to buy mine, and though I'd have given them away to the friends who asked, I didn't have enough of them. Anyone else do this trick? I have found that the best time is around the holidays, and I usually grab the walnuts out of the dish of nuts my Mom has out with all the other goodies at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Looks really impromptu, and a can from the cranberry sauce and a saucer from the coffee cups that Mom puts out just add to that. Great fun!
