Man... way too many, that's for sure.... I've probably blown away the rest of the year's pen budget just these last 2 weeks....

Lets see now. 2x Visconti Van Goghs... 2x Acme Simpsons LE... Pilot Bamboo... Parker Duofold Olive Checks....

Wow... that's like almost $1000 worth of pens crybaby.gif. I'm gonna regret this tongue.gif
Not the rest of the year's pen budget, but looks like the next 10 years.

I'm almost jumping up and down in anticipation, awaiting arrival of a Morrison Patriot Air Corps set complete with leather pouch and original box. This is silly, I know, as my cheque won't even reach the seller until three days hence, but this pen is way up on the list of my holiest grails.

Waiting for a Lamy 2000 and Lamy Safari Blue/Red. I am not waiting patiently. FedEx does not update it's tracking information fast enough. For all I know they may be delivered any minute or are still several states away.

I posted a poll here for FPN members to select the ink for my Lamy 2000's first fill. Vote if you're interested.

Cheers.

First a Delta Dolce Vita OS from the USA.....but before I get it, no doubt my usual battle with the Spanish Customs sad.gif

Also the 'Modern American' I wanted to fill a niche in my collection, a Bexley 10th Anniversary (green/red)...this will probably arrive first, as it's coming from within the EU.

And, no, not with patience...although living in Spain has helped me to learn a little!

While probably not that exciting to most here, I'm waiting for a Parker Inflection in yellow. I'm also waiting for three inks, one my standard black, and two new (to me) colors (Waterman Havana Brown and Private Reserve Black Magic Blue).

A deep burgundy laquered Danitrio Densho, customized with an XXXF flexible nib by Richard. Unfortunately, I 'll be waiting for several years for it to arrive as I can't afford such a dream.

A Sheaffer Snorkel Masterpiece (the all-gold one), supposed to arrive today, that I got an excellent price on -- if it's in the condition I hope.

3 pens

-Bexley FPN FP
-Rotring Lissabon
-Pelikan M625

At least I think that's it. there's been times a pen just randomly shows up that I forgot I purchased, but I'm pretty sure that's it!

A Bexley 10th Anniversary in chocolate ebonite from the US, of course. This is when I get really frustrated as one never knows how long it will take Canada Customs and Canda Post to process a package. Earlier this month I received a pen from John Mottishaw in 7 days, but 2 days later I ordered another pen from him and it took 2 weeks to get to me after sitting with Canada Customs for a week. If the Bexley is delivered on Monday, it'll be 2 weeks, but I suppose I''l have to make allowance for Easter!

2 Edison Glenmonts. One in mustard ripple ebonite with a bexley F nib. The other is orange ebonite with a standard steel nib (a Mottishaw 14kt XF is being worked on now).

I think they'll arrive today, but one can never tell. So I'll continue to wait patiently.

Today, tomorrow or Monday (what day does the P.O. close for Easter?), I will get in a rare find indeed. An orange LE Pilot VP. I did not need this pen, at least not right now. I had planned to get some sort of VP at some point in time, but I got this one at such a good deal, I went ahead and got one that I'm told is very unique and hard to find.
CURRENT STABLE:
(2) Danitrio Tac Carry II/Xezo Architect/(2)(1920's era) Redipoint Flex/Libelle Vortex/Orange LE Pilot VP/Mont Blanc Mozart/Dunhill Sidecar/ Pilot 823 Clear Demonstrator / TWSBI 580 / Stipula Passaporto LE WISH LIST:
MB Boheme / Platinum Hammered Sterling Silver / Pelikan M800 (clear demo) / Stipula Da Vinci / Visconti Opera Master / Delta Dolcevita Federico Oversize
