I taught secondary school in Westerly, RI for 32 years and went through more than one red pencil while correcting papers.

Not long ago I was in Newport, RI as a member of the Google+ Drink & Click Providence photo group taking part in the Drink & Click "Red" photo challenge when I noticed this red pencil in a parking lot along Thames Street and thought I'd take a snapshot.

    This brings back memories of the old wall pencil sharpners with turn handles that we used in by gone days ...I'll bet now the modern pencil sharpners in schools are automatic...Great find, shot and entry for the theme.
