You could make one for me? I would be happy to make a wooden pen for you in exchange.

I collect the little plastic containers that mechanical pencil lead refills come in.
I also collect coins and nostalgia weird things.
I like steampunk, too.

i also collect odd natural shapes in tree limbs and branches. if i see one when im cutting wood, i set it aside. best one so far was a sailboat with a mast. it was so believable my mom hung cloth on it for a sail.
see, i dont cut it to look like a boat, i see the limb as a boat.
big difference.
its sorta like seeing shapes in clouds. its one of a kind every time.

Really dont have any hobbies any more , My oldest son and I used to race Pocket bikes yes Im 6'1 and look like a monkey F---in a football but it ws fun to run 50+ mph that close to the ground , Mine was a water cooled 50 cc BZM italian 2 stroke motor humpin out about 17.5 hp , yes it would do wheelies with my fat butt on it . Im too old for that crap now. And our local track closed up so we offed them and we just shoot guns now , which in all honestly is probably cheaper . lol . Yes I have broken many body parts on these stupid things . 5 or 6 ribs comes to mind along with hand and ankle I now just go to wrestling meets with the kids and watch them its much safer







My boy and I , Him killing it as usual








Here is a pic that someone in the pits caught of me crashing , that one comes to mind as a ankle injury
