Default Think twice!

Before posting your newest pen in the Show off your Pen forum, see if it qualifies for entry into the 2019 IAP BASH Pretty Wood Pen Contest.

What could it hurt? You might win a fabulous prize.

Beause of accumulating snow, my workplace is operating with a two hour delayed arrival. I could make a Pretty Wood Pen in two hours. I'm not eligible to enter, so I'll go shovel snow instead.

Don't delay arrival of your Pretty Wood Pen entry!

Shovel snow? Are you nuts? You live in Minnesota & you don't own one yet?
Get one of these instead.
After all, they ARE built in your state.

Herb, I prefer the Armstrong model. He's quieter, gets it done faster and cleaner, doesn't smell gassy (most of the time), and starts every time.

When there's a big snow, or heavy wet stuff, then I break out "The Tank" that looks like this (image stolen from the interwebs):
