My hometown of Blairsville Georgia has one of those old courthouses located in the center of the town. I remember cruising around it on weekends in my 65 Mustang convertable. A comittee has restored the old building in the last several years and it is now a museum. They had to cut down a bartlett pear tree that had grown too close. My father, who is on the committee, acquired a few logs from the tree. I will later make a bowl from the wood but for now I filmed myself making a cigar pen. The video has a picture of the tree and the courthouse.
