      Lou's 2020 Mik's Challenge Build

      I have been chomping at the bit for this ever since I saw this sign on the side of the road during School Board Elections.

       

      Here's my idea for a Golf Pencil Manufacturing Company. Separate building for the Eraser Division.

      I have named all of my created buildings for people I have met. For example, there is BC's Ice Cream Stand (Bruce Chandler), Golding's Pretzel Factory (Ric & Jan), and I purchased Brunt Junction. Right now I'm not sure who will get the honor of the Pencil Factory, but a $100 bill in the mail may sway my decision.

       

      Happy Modeling!

      Lou, you forgot the most important aspect of the buildings ...... a chimney   I love the inspirational photo. Everyone needs pencils and more importantly for me, an eraser   Looking forward to your build.

      Guess you're not a golfer, Devon.

      Not all golf pencils have erasers so we can "correct" our scores.

      I golfed a few times. I almost always could shoot an 80 every time I played. Someone once suggested I try playing 18 holes and see how I do.

      Will my crisp new $1,000.00 bill work?

         The use of pencils has featured very prominently throughout my life! I just had to look this up, forgive me, Lou....

      Thanks, John.

      We will be having small buildings that make only short pencils.

      How about if I scan and email a $100 bill to you?

      Actually, the bill I have in my hand is for $128.76.....

      I didn't get my chimney yet, but I admit I cheated and started early.........

      I Super glued my fingers together in advance.

      Hard to type with my fingers glued together.

      Sorry, Hollywood, you are going to have to wait for:     "Marconi's Macaroni".

      Got the chimney yesterday and my fingers unglued.

      Starting on Ver 2.0:

      The pencil division will be a long, skinny building, and the Eraser Division will be an old Baggage Car.

      To clarify: The Eraser Division will be a baggage car body from the Bachmann "Short Line Railroad".

      Progress is very slow. In the shed (45F), I dug out the other political signs that I will use for the sides of the Pencil Manufacturing. I probably can work on the Eraser Division and the chimney after I thaw out. Oh, and a nap after lunch.

      Ummmm, I might have a small clue why progress is slow.

      I see you have a nice,  Rooster approved napkin to use. We have a few we brought home from last trip.

      Lookie what I found. A pile of leftover facing stones from a previous challenge.

       

      Along with the Bachman Shortline Baggage Car, a perfect office for the Eraser Division.

       

      Ta Da!
