Wish I had remembered to bring my camera! I think this is the first show I didn't get a pic of every one and never did end up with one of me and Danny. It was such a blast! Can't wait for the next one!

Depends... are we using USMCMoms way of counting? If so it should only be a few weeks.... or something like that!

Oh, I know you wouldn't. As for my special way of counting ... you're just not accustomed to it and it only works when you're waiting for something special. I haven't figured out how long before the next Little Rock show, though. LOL

Well, if those dates were nearer to the Philly show dates.........does anyone know those for next year?.............. I could do both! How I'd love to come to Little Rock - I hear the Lobster is very good there!!! :drool:

By the way, and please excuse my manners, but four postcards landed here last week, covered in wonderful greetings from lots of people - Mauricio, your calligraphy is wonderful! Henry and Wendi, John Mortinson was behind them all, with Susan Wirth of course...........and so many lovely people!!! :bunny01: :bunny01: :bunny01: :bunny01: :bunny01:

I meant to thank you ALL then, but somehow my desk became the site of sorrow when a pen was stolen from the mail to me - but I've bounced back - and will forever be looking for an Omas Autunno with tweaked fine nib! :crybaby:
Each day is the start of the rest of your life!

John was so very nice to facilitate that...thoughtful fellow.
What dreadful news about your pen! Did you ever touch the package? I am soooo sorry, Chris! :crybaby:

so I did touch the package, opened it, then handed it over to the Australian PO for investigation - still waiting............. and no doubt we all know what they will say! :crybaby:

Thanks for your empathy!

March 23-25 was not a good option as it will be Spring Break in Arkansas.
Last night, our club voted on the date for this event. The date is ...

March 30 to April 1, 2012

A new post will be created once we have all the details for the 2012 Arkansas Pen & Watch Show.
We wanted to give you as much headup as possible so you can mark your calendars now.
Looking forward to another huge round of pen fun next year!
Tu Amigo!
