Collections: Thoughts and Things Celebrate, Create, Contemplate. Repeat.

The Write Stuff

What profession has had custom handheld recording devices for years?

Easily fits in your pocket, never needs a charge, and won’t roll away if set down.  Can be a challenge to sharpen, but if you use one, most likely you’ll have the right tool on-hand already.

Carpenter pencils.

No chasing pencils while taking notes with these on the job site.  Holding one reminded me of the feel of the large, fat flat-sided crayons from kindergarten.

While key to almost every construction site from commercial offices to luxury homes, this sub-contractor apparently very rarely gives out swag. Here is a rare example.  Hint? Similar to the companies A Royal Flush, Porta Potty,and Mr.  John’s,  it’s a Honey Bucket pencil!

Yes, I’m actually saying this is a treat.
