Eddie, I am within a few pages of finishing the next book, "Mr. Jennings Takes it Easy." I have also written part of the third book, "Mr. Jennings Takes it Tough."
The "Easy" book will be between 300 and 400 pages, and the material contains NO passes, palms, culls, reverses, etc.

Richard,

I second the commetn that Jennings '67 is a great book (and I bought it for $20 via your scratch and dent sale and it was in pristine condition). Can't wait for the next installment.

Speaking of Jennings 67
In the book RK gives us what he calls something like "the most recent and accurate description" of LJ "Open Travellers" (5 cards version).
In the book's description, the standard Adrian Plate's Excelsior Change is used to palm the last ace.
In his last video, we can see LJ uses "a Jim Patton's unpublished variation of the Plate's Change" (credited at the end of the tape) to perform the same task.
More curious is the fact that Patton's move is published and credited in an earlier video Jennigs video from A1.
I personnaly think that the Patton's variation is beter in the context of the open travellers but that's a personnal view. I use it for palming both the fourth and third ace.

Jennings did NOT use the Patton palm most of the time. He did it on the videos because he thought magicians would be interested by it.
When he normally did the trick, he used the Plate palm as described.
