I've been getting into wood turning thanks to my wife's interest in it. I've made a couple of pens and a pencil that turned out pretty well. Some friends asked for a video on the process so I finally made one of my most recent pen.
I'm also starting to sell the pens and mechanical pencils I make. If you'd like one, contact me at the Contact link at the top of the page. Right now the price is $10 but that will probably go up soon. The pens write really well and the pencils use standard leads so you can use your favorite.
[When Vonnegut tells his wife he’s going out to buy an envelope] Oh, she says, well, you’re not a poor man. You know, why don’t you go online and buy a hundred envelopes and put them in the closet? And so I pretend not to hear her. And go out to get an envelope because I’m going to have a hell of a good time in the process of buying one envelope. I meet a lot of people. And, see some great looking babes. And a fire engine goes by. And I give them the thumbs up. And, and ask a woman what kind of dog that is. And, and I don’t know. The moral of the story is, is we’re here on Earth to fart around. And, of course, the computers will do us out of that. And, what the computer people don’t realize, or they don’t care, is we’re dancing animals. You know, we love to move around. And, we’re not supposed to dance at all anymore.
Thanks to Merlin for that.
