Greetings Earth People
I just cometh from the Mothership to bring you tidings and news of a new gadget called "The Fountain Pen." (no it has nothing to do with water. Ink.... you fill a little converter with ink, out of a bottle, no less.
I grew up using fountain pens and when the mighty ballpoint came alive, I reached for it with lust in my heart..... but phooey ........ I soon tossed it aside and returned to my loving fountain pen. I'm archaic in so many areas. But that is why I am called.... drum roll.... ta-dum...... the SURVIVOR.
I'll add one thing.... Those Germans sure do know their technology. I love it when a label says, "Made in Germany." My new pen on the right is a German made Lamy..... love of my life. No frills or dills, plain, not shiny and slightly bulky but it's like writing with velvet. Swoon. And what a reasonable price..... no I don't sell them.
Cheers from the ink-stained finger SURVIVOR.
