Enjoy.
If you had made a pen from those blanks, it would have won hands down.

I tried, Edgar. I took a holly one outside to photograph in natural light, slipped on some ice, and dropped it in the snow. I'll have to wait until Spring thaw to find it.

I set the clear one down, and now I can't find it. Probably shouldn't have back-painted the hole.

Edgar will probably put the Holly blank in one of his puzzles.

I'd still get it wrong, too.

I think some scaredy cats are holding their entries until the last minute, to avoid being mocked.

If that's the case, I pledge to be merciless.

Frankly, I believe that any pen weighing less than 40 pounds cannot possibly be classified as “difficult to write with”.

Made a pen from a 105mm Howitzer shell once. Would it be the right calibre?

40lbs is baby stuff compared to being shocked. Now, if you wired up a cattle fence power generator to it then that would be different.............
