Pens, Pencils & Markers...


With all the straightening up of my 'mess', I've come across a few pens, pencils and markers. See? Okay, a lot of them were already in cups, but I kept finding more! How does one accumulate all of these? Holy Schmoly!!!

(see the little puppy with bunny ears? it's from Kelley...a long time ago.)

Okay, now. The markers are all legitimate...I had a business of selling patterns. I drew the patterns on the linen with markers. But look, I have blue markers and green markers and extra fine point markers...none of which I used in drawing patterns. And, I'm thinking, all those black markers...didn't I throw out the ones that were drying up? Yes, I did. Well, then where did all of these come from?

And, what's with the pencils? I rarely use a pencil...and usually just the one that has a magnet on it that I have on the refrigerator next to a notepad so that I can jot down grocery items as I notice they're needed.

Pens. And, more pens! I have Allegra pens...yes, I do! You know, the allergy medicine? For which my little girl was NOT named?
All of the pens write...so why throw them out? But, again...where'd they all come from? I'm thinking years of going to trade shows (vet-related) and picking up pens everywhere is how this happened. Kinda cracks me up!

Know what else cracks me up? The fact that I felt the need to write about all of my pens, pencils, & markers. But, hey! Even more than that? The fact that you are reading this!

Pens...I love "clicky pens"...am forever losing them at work since I'm charting and signing my name 1000 times a day...and then someone borrows one and the three that started in my pocket at the beginning of the shift is down to one...

love my Sharpies too...and scissors, ah well...it's an addiction...

now, how many hooks do you have???

Wow, yes we are quite a bunch for reading this but for us it is great entertaining!!
I have pens / pencils / markers in 2 places in my house and every time I go to write something down, someone has taken one that I had sitting on the table so I go to get another one out of my collection and there are always more. They must multiply while we sleep!!!!!

Pens do multiply! I still have a Peters Meats Pen, from ---years ago.! I know I collected some of those Allegra pens from drug reps for you. And of course, pens come in 2 or 4 or 10 packs.
