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.

January Giveaway

"Good morning America, how are ya!  Don't cha ya know me I'm your native son..."  Arlo Guthrie!  How did you get on my blog!?  Well, the nerve of some people!...  Anyway it's time for my January giveaway.

This month up for grabs is a brand new set of uni-ball Signo Erasable gel pens in 0.5 mm point size.  They come in 8 colors, black, red, orange, green, blue, violet, pink and aqua and come in their own handy carry case.  These are similar to the uni-ball Signo UM-100 gel pens only they are erasable.  They each have their own color coordinated eraser atop the cap.  They are one of the smoothest erasable gel pens available.

If you would like a chance to win this nicely packaged set of erasable gel pens then all you have to do is send me an email.  In the subject line of the email write Pens And Pencils January Giveaway and if you wish you can put some nice comment about how great an old geezer I am for giving away such nice things... or not!  Hey!  So what!  I'm soliciting compliments!... I mean, it's not like a get a lot of them from friends and family, ya know!  Yeah!  I have feelings!  I like to be appreciated!  I'd feel a lot better about myself if a certain few individuals would pay a bit more attention to me from time to time... Eh, oh my!  A-hum!  Please excuse me!  I've... I've been sick, yeah, that's it!  I've been sick!...

At any rate get your email in because you can't win if you don't enter!  I'll give you until sometime Monday, the 31st.  Just exactly when on Saturday I don't know.  I don't keep a regular schedule and I'm up at odd hours, asleep during the day and night, so I'll close the giveaway at my whim!  But not before I've collected all the emails and posted that the giveaway is closed!  Once closed I'll use the Random Integer Generator at the bottom of my blog to generate a number between 1 and the total number of eligible emails received.  Emails are numbered in the order in which they are received, earliest first.

So, ladies and germs (I told you I've been sick) get those emails in!  Just in case you can't find my email addy on my blog there on the left as part of my profile, it's theoldgeezer@live.com

The giveaway is and has been officially closed!
