Well, Since a few days after Christmas I’ve been in the workshop playing with the lathe and new drill press that Mae got me. And for the past week, I’ve been making Pens. So far, I’ve made 8. Gave 1 to a friend, and the misses took one. 2 I’m keeping for myself. The rest are for sale for $25 ea.

Most of these have wooden bodies that were turned on the lathe. A couple have Acrylic bodies that also were shaped on the lathe. Anyone that wants one can contact me through the Standing Bear Facebook page. Bullet pens by the way will be between $50 – $75 depending of it wood is used like the one pictured right above, it uses a piece from a Jack Daniels whisky barrel, or deer antler.


In 8 days a half Orangutan, half Oompa Loompa will be sworn in as the 45th President. Under normal conditions, this fact would be funny, the stuff that could only happen in a screwball comedy. But these are not normal times or conditions. And the morons that voted for this moron in chief, are just beginning to realize just how bad they have screwed not only the country over but themselves. Case in point, the redneck the other day that celebrated Trump getting rid of “Obamacare” while all the while noting that he had his insurance under the ACA. When others pointed out that the ACA and Obamacare were the exact same thing and that he would also loose his insurance, the poor bastard went silent. That is the normal level of ignorance of a Trump supporter. Others, are laughing for they realize how badly the future will be and delight in seeing Trump supporters slit their own throats. I realize though that this is not the time to gloat, but a time to come together and unite against the coming bad times. Every time in our history that the Republicans have controlled both the white house and the congress this   country has suffered a major economic depression or recession. And this time will be no different.

May God Help Us All.
