Pen And Ink Links Plus A Few Others

03/15/2015

Half of these links are pen related. Two are just plain cool. You be the judge of whether the remaining two might have been better worthy of soapbox rants…

Useful articles from last week…

This little House Finch has been tapping at my window for two days as his mate watches from a nearby fence. What can he possibly see inside that is so intriguing?

Four-Letter Words

03/01/2015

You know them. The usual four-letter words that add color to emotional moments. I live with young adults and hear them frequently, so much so that most have lost their impact, though they seem to carry over great distances punctuating sentences in premature locations. Ear buds are my defense unless of course the word is directed at me.

I’d like to nominate two more words to the four-letter category: work and life. They aren’t as colorful, but can be said in much the same way. This past week had many such moments. A two-day weekend has been insufficient to recover. Looking forward to a good week as it is only fair that cosmic scales should restore balance for it is unlikely to come from any other source.

This week’s collection is a real mishmash…

This is an inherited piece. We’ve come up with several stories for the composition though none quite suits it exactly. What do you think it’s about?

Sad News

02/21/2015

There is no other way to say this but straight up. Dick Egolf passed away two days ago. He was the founder of Luxury Brands, LLC, distributor of Platinum and Noodler’s products and a good friend to the fountain pen community.

Dick was known for amongst other things enormous generosity. In fact he gave me my first Platinum #3776 Music Nib several years ago which instantly became my favorite. Over time he sent many inks and pens and contributed greatly to keeping Inkophile alive. For that I will be forever grateful.

Dick’s legacy will be carried forward by family members, Carol and John Gillett. They have been running the day-to-day business for the past year though Dick continued to be involved with the nurturing of his dream.

Thank you, Dick, for your contribution to the fountain pen world. You will be missed.
