This just in.

In response to my entry about him, my father sent this photo just now:

retro pencil holder

The original excerpt: "...pencils for which we had to buy extensions (you put the ever shorter getting pencil into it so that you extended the length of pencil stump) ... we used the pencils until nothing was left of the wood/lead." neat!

EDIT | The new text that came with this: "This is an expensive replica of how it looked ... imagine the silver holder a cheap plastic piece and the pencil without the silver tip but with a completely used up (flat) eraser and bite marks all over it (on the little stump)"
