Am I the only one to have brought home the traditional Pen Show souvenir?...
a nasty head cold. Ugh, I thought I was washing my hands often enough, I guess not.

BUT it is worth it to have been to a Northern California Pen Show!!!
AND, I got to work with the enchanting Miss Stephanie and the lovely Lady Estela again.

I wish I had pictures of Kernan and Lisa in the kilt, "who wore it better?"
...
Thank you all for supporting the Monster


Ergh, I hope you've gotten better by now.

Who are these people? And they were two kilts, one each. Only one was wearing jeans underneath, and crossdressing.

Ricky, do you think if I wrote M. Burke I could get information on this pen? I spent last night looking around at various Conway Stewart info, and couldn't find it anywhere. It has *really* piqued my curiosity! Any other info or sources I should look to?

Cheers,
Jon



Many of the CS pens in the show photos are new models that have not been released or announced. Mary can give you info although I don't think she has any pricing info yet since they are determining those right now.

Hi Posse,

Sorry have been out of the loop. Left the SF show, went home for a day and started a road trip to South Carolina, 2500 miles down. Will be in B) B) SC tomorrow, staying until it is time to go to Columbus for the Ohio Pen Show.

Meat chips, rare dip pens, and walking cane/pen stanhopes will have to wait till I return to CA in mid November.

Lisa and Ricky are you still asking where all the weird pen stuff comes from??? (hint: I have a magic garage), story for later.

Pen report: half of the antique stores between SF and Oklahoma City that I used to shop are closed, saw only 2 Sheaffers and passed on both.

Southern flea markets are waiting B)

Here is the only photo I took ALL WEEKEND.

This was post-show opening-day Pen Posse, after dinner at the Korean BBQ place (which was really good, even though a couple of marauders from the other table *coughRickycough* raided and pillaged our table of its... Korean tapas (I don't know the name for those little dishes of deliciousness)). (I know. We said we didn't mind, but we laughed at your pirate maneuver!)
...

I nursed the Laphroaig back to health, though, heck yeah!


Wait a minute... I was at Friday night's Korean BBQ dinner and I sure didn't see any Laphroaig -- now THAT I would never miss.

You were supposed to go to room 170 and wait while we did the Bev Mo run. When we came back, we lost a bunch of people.

It wouldn't be Pen Posse if we were that organized.

Why, if we were more organized we would have bylaws and stuff.
