A Retirement Gift

So, my father-in-law retired last year so I had to decide what to give him for retirement. He had mentioned at one point in time that he would like one of the flipping toys I make. So, I made this special one for him. He worked in Church Education, so one side of the man looks like the working, CES guy with "CES: Church Education System" written on it while the other side looks like a retired man having fun with "CES: Completely Emancipated Slacker" written on it. It's hard to see in the picture, but the retired guy has a gold chain that says "CTR" and is wearing a wifebeater tank, luau shirt, board shorts, and flip-flops--I just couldn't resist. This is my favorite toy I've made. I would love to make more that look like one person from one side and another from the other. Here are pictures and a video of it working. (This is the one I described, but didn't have pictures for, when I posted the other two I made last year.)  SORRY THAT THE VIDEO IS SIDEWAYS.
