“The principal point of cleverness
is to know how to value things just as they deserve.”
– Francois de La Rochefoucauld
I have been talking to the friendly staff of my favorite local Target store about obtaining a few giant pencils decorating the store ceiling as a back to school reminder. I submitted a request; expressing an interest in obtaining a few pencils for the I Back Jack golf outing and upcoming Ann’s Hope Foundation running events. My vision? Repurpose these giant pencils as directional markers.
Today I received the call that the store’s staff saved a dozen pencils for me. My creative juices were flowing as I tried to fit a dozen pencils (I did mention they were giant, right) into my Rav4. The pencil tips rested on the top of my dashboard and the erasers were bent into a curve at the back of the vehicle. The pencil pile rested on one shoulder as I transported them back to my house. Using wrapping paper, I altered the pencil for the back to school golf outing event! They will live on in my attic awaiting their next purpose!
