I wondered this myself. Ten months ago I was looking for a couple of good pens. I thought since smoking has gone out of vogue, nothing would be better to celebrate the birth of a child like that of a wooden pen. Wood and children have a lot in common as they are both renewable, distinctive, one of a kind and true gifts. Anyway that is my one man crusade, to have wooden pens given out instead of cigars at the birth of a child. At that time however I got a quote of 30 dollars a pen. I thought that was rather high. It seems now I might have been wrong.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
