Jim’s Pencils in a Coffee Jar

Jim's pencils in a coffee jar

Jim’s pencils in a coffee jar, collection of Wade Bussert

Russell kept almost everything and many of those things he turned into something significant or meaningful.

Here is a photograph of a jar of Jim’s pencils.  Rather than toss them when they became too short he placed them into a glass jar that previously held three pounds of coffee, a jar that had its own character thanks to all of the writing on the lid.

When Satch and I were in Kewanna doing research Wade Bussert pulled this jar of pencils out for us to see.  I had to take a photograph.
