Is that a Ryobi drill peeking in from the side? No DeWalt, or god forbid, a Milwaukee with a man sized 1/2” chuck? Sorry, I’m cranky because you are sold out of DDC crew socks.

Hey Draplin!
I love these things! I’m going to buy my Dad some for his birthday. Being on the job site he writes on everything I figured this would better suit him. Thanks again for the great week at Mankato. I’m still using skills you presented us, and I am trying to “keep things simple.” Anyways Hope life is grand!

I really like the new pencils, are those going to be for sale alone? Or could you hook up a Michigan born and raised guy if not?
