  The Pen visits Hanceville, Alabama to watch Keoni Felipe play a soccer game at Wallace State and they won 8 to 0.  



So there John and I were, minding our own business standing in front of an elementary school in Key West, happily addressing a post card with The Pen, when all of a sudden a giant tiger sprang out from behind a tree, bit John on the leg, grabbed The Pen and started to consume it.  I said to John, "Golly, gee -- I'm sorry you're bleeding profusely, but shouldn't we try to save this precious memento of Clendenin and Eccritean history?" 

"Hell, no!" he shouted. "Let the tiger keep the f*%$'in pen!" Clearly, John is not as sentimental as I.

Right after this picture was taken, the tiger closed his mouth and swallowed The Pen.  I guess we can't take any more pen pictures!
