Erm, excuse me, I think you'll find I have exclusive rights to be the one covered in ink at pen shows rolleyes.gif Personally I blame Eric mellow.gif

Do I have exclusive rights to the babbling bit? roflmho.gif


If you're going to be there, then my chance of finding trouble just doubled! thumbup.gif

I will be at the show (with any luck). I have a nib or two that could do with a little smoothing.

I will most definitely be there! I'm also taking my 12 year old niece with me - her first pen show. She's very excited!

So am I (even though it means I'll have to behave myself this time.....)

I took a bit more than two hours Roger, from Victoria, but I did walk it !!
Doing same as last year, down on Saturday night and back to Edinburgh on the Sunday night.
Back from a holiday in Majorca, with my soon to be eighteen year old daughter a couple of days before, so I may be somewhat fraggled, loathe to miss it though. Look forward to seeing a lot of people, oh and some pens and stuff???Posted Image Posted Image

I hope to be there, but for the morning only - have to be in South London in the early afternoon.

What are the plans for the Saturday evening - and am I allowed to come after getting the blame for Ian being the worse for wear at the Midland Show????

I am surprised it took you so long, Eric... I'd have guessed it wasn't more than about a coupla miles :)
I waited ages for buses which then took me in the wrong direction, and finally took a taxi which abandoned me to walk the last bit due to the traffic jams :( It'll be the toob this time...if they aren't on strike!!

I've got one of my work colleagues popping in to walk the dogs, so I'll be heading up to London on the Sunday morning :) See you all there. I've acquired another pen that needs a little nib work. Think I might have got a bargain today - Parker 65 Flighter for a fiver :)

Sorry to hear that. I was looking forward to meeting up with you again especially as I didn't contact you for our proposed get together.

I will be coming along to Kensington with Sarah, my daughter, again and this time accompanied by my wife.
Looking forward to meeting up with you all.

George
