It’s Time To Take Inventory

How do you spell February?

How do you spell February?

After writing over 290 blogs I hope you will excuse me while I take a week off from giving any thought to my writing and simply take an inventory of the contents of the top of my desk.  It will not be a complete inventory just items I find interesting, strange or otherwise note worthy. Ok, maybe I am giving some thought to this but not very much.  It may be interesting none the less.

  • 10 batteries – 2 D cells and 8 AA’s. One of which is a rechargeable. I think they are all uncharged.
  • A battery charger.
  • A 2015 calendar from Wells Fargo that has the second month of the year misspelled as “Febrary”.
  • 9 highlighters in 5 colors a few are not completely dried up.
  • A two-hole punch that I use less than once a year. Some people might call that a paperweight.
  • An adding machine with no adding machine tape in it. I still use this almost daily.
  • A bobblehead of Richie Hebner – probably the best baseball player in history who had to change his number because Pie Traynor got into the hall of fame and the Pirates retired it.  All I know about Pie Traynor is that he was the pitch man in the early 70’s for a company that advertised on local Pittsburgh TV.
  • A Canon LiDe-25 flatbed scanner I bought in 2006 for $50 when I started Paceline Business Consulting. It might be the best $50 I ever spent on technology.
  • A compass – a damn compass! I don’t even know how to use it and don’t know how it got there.
  • An electric pencil sharpener even though I use a mechanical pencil to write.
  • Two 7 mm mechanical pencils – my “go to” and a back up that was my former “go to”.
  • A 2014 desk calendar that I use to write on for a better writing experience versus a hard desk. Don’t ask I just have a thing about writing on a hard surface.
  • An unused sanitizing hand wipe from Chick-Fil-A.

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog and a look into my desk top.  Have a great week; I have to learn how to work a compass.
