Two for Tuesday
Click for better views. If I had a time machine, I would not use it for good or for evil. But what I would do is hop on back to 1940 and head to the nearest store and buy every single Parker Fountain pen that I could find. OK, I might also go place a bet on who wins the world series that year. (just had to Google, it was the Reds, Duh.)
So I pulled these out of the safe yesterday and refilled both of them. I need to get these restored. Speaking of restoring, this guy is amazing. http://munsonpens.wordpress.com/ No, he has not sent me a check to mention his name, but I love the way he photographs and documents his restores. Mad props. Both of these pens are a joy to write with. They make me want to buy nice paper. They make me want to call up strangers and tell them about my pens. (except for you Mr. Johnson, I remember you putting me on the do not call list) Gold has never been my thing, I was always a silver guy, but with pens... bring it. I gotta go make a checklist for something just to write with these now.
