Virgil definitely does. Holy Ghost was the last book in his series (I'm pretty sure) and he used his pocket knife to pick a lock. I like that there's a little more humor in the Flowers books. I always wondered what kind it was, and what kind Weather used to save Lucas. I kinda imagine Virgil with a Case of some sort....
Here's a couple little models I put together of two iconic movies cars some may or may not recognize.
Really like this photo with the slimline trapper and the BelAire wagon!
I'm surprised I recognize them, but I'm almost certain those are the cars from the big drag race in American Graffiti, right?
Milner drove the yellow one, and the black one is the Millennium Falcon?
Yes, I like the Flowers novels better than the Prey ones.... although I've read all of them. Lucas is a known type... serious, almost tunnel visioned in his approach to life. Virgil is more laid back, Alan Jackson-ish, until you push his last button.... then he becomes a serious pit bull type attack dog, but then feels a little guilty about it afterwards. I guess he strikes me as being more human, with human doubts and regrets.
And yep you got it, they're from American Graffiti.
A custom '55 Chevy, and a '32 Ford Coupe.
See your slide rule, raise you one Curta pepper mill.
I'm a big fan of Sandford. Have to say I like the Flowers novels better than the Prey series too. I even read the Singular Menace series, which are supposed to be for young adults/teens and thoroughly enjoyed them.
Hold the string between your first two fingers, with the point upward. Throw it at a shallow angle toward the ground so that the string unwinds and starts the top spinning. When it hits the ground it will right itself and spin on the point.
Easier to demonstrate than describe, but once you see it done, it is child’s play.
Har, har, har
Duck on Trike has been gathering dust a couple of shelves above my knives.
Holy Cow! I'd never heard of this before. Did some superficial Google research - very cool!!
I'm sure that works, but I always did it with the point down, and it worked fine.
Cool video! Never did that inside the house, though....
Thanks Rachel. That's pretty cool. Motion looks fairly similar to the one you'd use with a yo-yo.
Cool cars and well matched knives. What Buck is that with the '55 ?
Thanks, my neighbors were looking at me like I was some kind of weirdo..... probably because I am.... I mean I do tie knives to toy cars and take pictures of them in the middle of the street.
@paulhilborn I really liked your pics of your ol' cap guns.
I dug this one out and was saddened to find out that I am fresh outta ammo.
I went searching the web for caps, boy was that a mistake, I found a place that had a bunch of old school cap guns and tin toys....I might be in trouble.
