and Jenn in her painting clothes, and I in my beaver hat (well, not really),
We had just set down the painting mat,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the room to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a FedEx man coming near!!
Christmas had come early this year and I furiously tore open the package to
find, yes, an exquisite box. I explored the box, with the beautiful hinges, the
contrasting colours of the wood.. and then… yes.. inside, nestled in its soft
bed, a pen, a beautiful pen. And I smiled and I smiled and I smiled.
And then, showing my daughter, she smelled the wood (she always has to check
things out by their smell.. ) and then she too smiled.
And then later, Rick came home and I repeated the process with him… and I
smiled and I smiled and I smiled.
Thank you Douglas. Thank you. Merry Christmas!!!
Every great Ms. Executive Director of Inspections should have a power pen for ticking off those deductions,
and tabulating those kudos (Eat your heart out, Carly Fiorina). This one is for my winsome colleague in travel, Ms. Debbie P., the heart of Lumberjocks (Martin is the brains, I might be the funny bone). Background is the 7-grain box, posted elsewhere in my project roster. Deb got the box from the QS Morado pen, whose end panels match the Fishtail Oak of this cigar pen. Finish is Mylands Friction polish with Renaissance Wax.
