Does that mean you filled up 01? Is it traveling with 02?

No, on both counts. smile.gif

There are 3 separate journals out there that I originated: ITJ 01, ITJ 02, and ITJ 03, all separate groups. ITJ 02 is the one this group is working on, still version .1. It should fill on this next round.

ITJ 01 and ITJ 03 have yet to finish their maiden rounds.

The groups all are about equal.

I'd say with summer vacations and life emergencies and distractions, this bunch has been on the right side of timing, is all.

My dear Fateh, be watching your mails over the next couple of weeks. The journal you are a part of, ITJ 01, is in the mail back to me, and I will get it out within a day or so after I receive it. smile.gif

You are never forgotten.

Ok! This means the journal is close to winging my way again. I can hardly wait. What inks did you choose this time, Roger? (I sure enjoy your postcard swaps, too.)

It hasn't got to me yet...I think Ondina must be writing her life-story smile.gif
Or maybe she's just very busy, reading all the previous entries; I'm certainly looking forward to doing so.

Heh, I can never remember what I've written or what I've used. I have to wait for the journals to swing by me again, just like everyone else. Once this one is filled (or near to it), I'll scan it so we can all remember. The hard part will be getting it down to a nice, easily read size. My little scanner works well enough, but it isn't top line.

Well, those of us with scanners could perhaps scan everything up to where they last read/wrote-in it, and you could send us the missing bits...would that help?
Probably not...just a seed of a thought which might germinate into something practical!

Well, it arrived yesterday (it's now 2.13am on 28th!! why am I still up?)

I spent the whole morning reading and re-reading the fascinating content....... people tell me I have had an 'exciting' life, but I don't think it has had half the dramas experienced by the other contributors ohmy.gif

Thanks, folks...I will get to it soon....promise no BSB this time wink.gif Trouble is, nearly all my inks are rather wet, and have a tendency to bleed-through the Apica...but I'll do my best.

Maybe, if Kimy will share her 'lessons learnt', I will start another one when this is done; I have some small new notebooks from Richard B which I'd expect to be fp-friendly, but they might be a bit thin!

Roger,

back to basics I'm afraid. Try Diamine ink in a Lamy Safari. I accept its not as exotic as some of favourite pens, but its farily dry.

Looking forward to seeing what you;ve all been writing since the last round.

Meh, use more pages! I found myself wishing I hadn't imposed a page limit on entries. I just wanted to keep reading and reading...

The next round will be better for you Roger. The journal to start that round has a mix of Arches and Frankfurt papers. Let your pens flow!

Haven't got a Safari, Jim, but have managed to find some dry enough pen/ink combinations smile.gif
I experimented a bit on the very last page before taking the plunge.
The previous experience just made me choose a bit more carefully....don't worry, Kimy smile.gif

But it wouldn't be me if I didn't have some sort of little mishap!

My 72yo Vacumatic was going so well, but suddenly decided to deposit a big 'blob' of Arabian Rose...fortunately right in the top corner of the page and kitchen towel saved the day....I'm sorry, but the free blotters supplied by a certain nibmeister aren't really up to the job, IMO, except, maybe, when they are absolutely brand-new!
As I say, no real damage done...just one page with a bit of extra decoration ....(tell me what you can see in this blot!)
It could've been much worse.....I just feel rather embarrassed at having blotted my copybook biggrin.gif (and yours).

I have just packed it up to send to Jim...don't feel I have done very well this time around...as I said, too many other things going-on in my life just at the moment, maybe.

I didn't do terribly well the first time around, Roger, I really wasn't terribly well at all. Fortunately the tests have all come back normal, though my blood pressure is described as "borderline". I have been told to lose some weight though sad.gif So maybe I'll do better this time around. I'll be waiting out for the postman til it arrives.

I hope you are feeling much better, Jim. I've battled the high blood pressure. Some time ago, I went in because I almost passed out at work. My doctor freaked when he saw how high it was. I was fortunate in that I only had to take the medicine for 5 years before we got it under control. We still keep a close eye on it, though. Stress is the biggest factor, even over weight. That has been the hardest battle, considering where I work and a few other things.

Keep an eye on yourself, Jim. It's worth it.
