A pair of sharp eyes (Luann and I) happened to catch this at the same time last night watching NCIS.

Right there on ‘Ducky’s’ desk was a box of wooden tongue depressors from Solon Manfufacturing, formerly of Solon and Skowhegan Maine. The reason it was so recognizable was the fact that I had redesigned the logo and packaging for them about 15 years ago when my father was the VP of Sales & Marketing.

Both my dad and Solon have passed on, but it was nice to see on CBS and that their prop people are keeping the brand alive after all these years.
