Welcome To My Thoughts On Pens And Pencils

I will respect your right to disagree with what I have to say about Pens and Pencils as long as you respect the fact that I am an Old Geezer.

The Old Geezer
Please Excuse My Absence

I have not blogged since July of 2015 due to the fact that my Lovely Wife was diagnosed with 2 types of cancer. A new case of breast cancer which has metastasized and gone to her bones, mainly her back. She had a mastectomy of her left breast which showed the type of cancer that was in her bones. She has been taking an oral med. every day and she has a port under her skin to receive a liquid med. She has gone through one round of radiation treatments to stop some pain in her back. That gave her GERD and the med for that was nasty tasting. The bone cancer has caused the vertebra in her lower back to pinch her left sciatic nerve causing her pain, numbness and foot drag. She also has skin cancer that has only been partly addressed.

I have been busy taking care of her as the treatments have left her weak and sickly. She can not drive so I have to drive her to her appointments and treatments. I also have to do all the cooking and most of what cleaning we do. So I do not have a lot of time for blogging. However the installment of the review of the Schaeffer Ultrafine 0.3mm pencil marks what I hope will be a new review every month. However some of my future reviews may seem familiar as they may be a review of a pencil or pen that I have reviewed before just in another size due to my limited collection of writing instruments and the economic state of our nation.

I am grateful to George Fox for wanting me to do a review of another one of his pencils. I think that as a reader of my humble blog, may fine of interest as the Schaeffer Ultra Fine is a very unusual pencil.

So please excuse my absence and as a reader of my humble blog I hope that you enjoy the review of this unique pencil.

Coming Soon...

Thank you,

The Old Geezer.

November/December Givaway

Welcome one and all to my humble blog!  Up for grabs this time is a brand new never used Ohto Super Promecha PM 1505P drafting pencil.  For those of you who are familiar with the Ohto brand of all metal drafting pencils will recognize this as being the latest iteration of the 0.5 mm version of the top of the line Ohto Super Promechas!  The PM 1505P features a variable length lead sleeve, a lead projection adjustment, a removable pocket clip, a lead grade indicator and an all metal exterior construction!   It is in top condition because it's been sitting around safe in it's plastic case awaiting it's turn at being given away!  It's wait is almost over!  I'm giving away this pencil just in time for Christmas! 

And all any one has to do is to have a chance at winning this great example of a drafting pencil is to send me, the Old Geezer, an e-mail containing somewhere in the body of the e-mail the words -  Ohto Super Promecha Giveaway.  That's it!  Once the giveaway is closed I will use the random integer generator to generate a random integer between 0 and the number of e-mails I have received.  The e-mails will be numbered in the order they are received (dated and time stamped).  No comments to this post will be accepted as entries to the giveaway.  You must send me an e-mail.  If you are the winner I will contact you via e-mail and ask for your mailing address.  You don't even have to check back after the contest ends to see if you've won!  The contest will remain open until midnight Friday, December 10th.  Shortly after closing I will pick the winner! 

But wait, there's more!  Along with the pencil I'm giving away 19 tubes of grade B lead!  That's right!  19 tubes!  That's 288 pieces of Pentel Super Hi- polymer grade B lead!  There is one full box of 12 tubes plus 7 tubes in a partially filled box!  Plus the pencil is already filled with 12 pieces of lead!  That's a total of 300 pieces of Grade B lead!  Wow!  Am I a great guy or what!? (don't you dare say "or what")!

So, times a waitin'!  Get to sending me e-mails!

UPDATE: We have a winner. Congrats to Dave who had the winning slot!
