155/365 Negative Space

"The Daily Grind"

Weber's dad was an attorney for the Missouri Pacific Railroad.  This pencil sharpener, which is probably nearly as old as I am,  sat on his desk at work.  It now sits on ours at home.  This is a great pencil sharpener!  It's sturdy and its little knob on the handle is real wood!  There is no plastic or parts to burn out  on this.  And, its opening is big enough for Weber's "My First Ticonderoga" pencil -  big pencils for big hands???  Perhaps he likes this pencil because his handwriting has not evolved much beyond what it was when he first encountered one of these chubby pencils in the first grade:-)
