I do not get to to take vacations anymore but I have friends and customers who do. I always ask them to pick me up a souvenir pen or pencil during their trips. These folks always come through. This trip was to the northeast part of the country to look at the fall leaves and get some pens. They did both. I added the BIC because I just got it. A BIC Quantech 0.7mm pencil. Have never seen one before in the stores. Nice looking on the card and that is where it will stay. BIC could have done better with this pencil. Just add the souvenir pens and pencils to your collection.
