Putting Independence Day To Good Use


Just so the day wasn’t a total waste, what with all that relaxing, socializing, and eating that marks the 4th of July, it was also pen cleaning day. Eight of the little dears got exactly what they deserved but now there are five bottles of ink on my desk looking for dates. I’d better go hide the pens before they get any improper ideas. Can’t have these guys randomly picking mates, you know?

  • Rohrer & Klingner Solferino has eyes for a Namiki Falcon SF.
  • J. Herbin Bleu Pervenche thinks the Sailor Sapporo F looks hot.
  • Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrün has a lock on the Namiki Falcon SB.
  • Montblanc Violet isn’t very adventureous but wants to sidle up to the Montblanc 220 OB.
  • Noodler’s Black Swan in Australian Roses is looking for an international liaison with a vintage Platinum Karakusa.

Oh, my!


  1. I did a fair amount of pen cleaning today too – nine in total. Probably should have been more. Six are being hied off to the Pen Storage Nunnery box. No dates for them this month. Three await blind dates arriving in tomorrow’s mail from Goulet the Matchmaker. Nine are still dancin’ with what brung ’em.


    • Sounds like we should keep yours away from mine lest some serious trouble might ensue.


  2. Been inking a handful at a time with some inks I want to use up journaling and letter writing so that I can experiment with new colors. It’s amazing how much of a bottle 5-7 pens can suck down in one go!


    • Thirsty suckers, aren’t they?
