Well composed, for a brain dented one.
Thanks for the compilation on Pencil History. I have found the H Urania-copying Made in Germany Blue, the Service Red Venus Pencil co. Limited, made in England 2381. The green Sonar Fberhard Fabre 779 COP.ER, the 3857 Bell PencilCo. Made in Germany HB. I am so pleased I took note of the book much of pencils, before giving them away.

So my parents were right to tell me to stop putting indelible pencil points in my mouth to make “paint,” because they were poison. As if I obeyed. My left palm gave me away; that’s where I mixed spit and pencil. One end of my favorite such poison pencil was blue and the other was red. LOL. No wonder I’m slightly brain dented.

Lovely post.
