      • Really, really sorry to hear that. I cannot begin to imagine what that has meant. I hope everything can be replaced eventually, but if not, Then you have the thoughts and best wishes of strangers on your side.

        • Thank you, Paul.Thankfully the pens weren’t mine. My collection wouldn’t be worth stealing though the pens are precious to me. Well, at least some of them. There are a few stinkers in the bunch that are welcome to leave home whenever they like. 😉
