Did FF Actually Use the Term?

Of course, you probably weren't in England learning to fly gliders being ground-launched by cables attached to barrage-balloon winches on the back of trucks. If the release didn't work, once you were directly overhead the truck, the cable started pulling you directly down onto the truck and the winch operator. The operator had a very quick trigger finger on the guillotine, I can assure you.

You are probably used to those nice airplane launches. Smile

Edit: Note that the trucks did not move. The glider was launched into the air by the speed of the cable being wound up on the winch. The glider gained enough airspeed on the ground to launch itself upwards about 500 feet before it came even with the truck. After that, the cable would pull the glider directly downward.

If the poem is about two people, a historic one and ff, then it is possible that the historic one was guillotined.

Alternatively, for another historic personage, I posted "off with their heads" when E.C. Waters was talking about John the Baptist the other day, but I don't think anyone noticed what I was talking about.

I've got like ten experimented with books...some cutting of pages wouldn't hurt if I didn't already have a spot. Smile

There is a Las Vegas in NM, and my spot is a spot. I don't think it's hot. Smile

And the 'guillotine' could mean a rope. Maybe like the ones that have been found.

Especially ropes that decapitate, like the one that decapitated Blackjack Ketchum in a Wild West "poor execution."

It was at Moby Dickens:

"How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!"


also discussed in detail in my book Finding Forrest Fenn.

Yeah, it's very pretty there. Hard to imagine the pond was big enough for two alligators.

The inside of the gallery was pretty cool with all the little "Fenn touches" spread around--fireplace, pottery sherd threshold, etc...

And the tree through the hole in the wall out front was pretty cool, too.

But the parking lot was too small ... lol... Smile
