Where There’s A Wilkes There’s A Way

Reading and writing materials for a short trip to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, last home of the Eberhard Faber Corporation:

For writing, an A.W. Faber Castell waistcoat pencil (c. 1910), Graf von Faber-Castell A4 writing case, pad, and pernambuco fountain pen. For reading the latest issue of Rolling Stone, featuring Rush on the cover.

I wonder if the guys in Rush like to use pencils?

Being waistcoat-less, I have finally found a use for that little pants-pocket inside the main pocket; just have to remember to take it out before going through security.
