Nutcracker stool race

An Envoy prepares for the Bisbee Nutcracker Stool race, on the 4th of July.

It requires much more skill than meets the eye.
The little known "Nutcracker Stool race" originated in Germany in the late 1800's.
This German nutcracker stool was made in 1933.
Very few of these priceless antiques remain today, due to the fact that they usually destroyed by racing them.

These German stools are near mint, and are worth A FORTUNE!
I too, am the proud owner of a near mint nutcracker stool!

And to that I say... at least we had good times before during and after the race! Throw caution and nutcrackers to the wind!!!
