Those gifts set a fine example for me as my 64th birthday is coming up! You set the bar high!

Enjoy life - we've earned the privilege.

Have you guys just found this thread? It will soon be my seventy-SECOND! :lol:

But thanks, anyway :)

I don't have any plans for 'birthday pens' from the Bristol Show this year, but who knows......?

The CP Flame Red didn't do anything for me in the writing department, so has a new home, despite its stunning looks.

The Magna Writer, has been joined by an Onoto WES Presidents Pen M (also with Serial #100), has been stubbed by Oxonian, and both now write like a dream on practically all nice papers. The WSLE was filled with Herbin 1670 which it didn't like ..... constantly getting gunged-up....but now writes nicely with Diamine Monaco. I used it for my Christmas cards, along with a Broad stubbed Sheaffer Legacy with one of the Diamine greens....I forget which.
