So much fun. Next one's The Other PPPC -- Saturday, 12/22 (right?). Hooray!



Actually, I was wrong. The date should be Sunday the 23rd.



Now I'm sad. The 22nd was doable, the 23rd I'm the chauffeur for incoming relatives.

Lisa, you are very welcome! It was delightful to meet your mother.

Doug, THANK YOU! One of the best Pen Posse venues ever!

and.......

Thank you all for making the drive! :notworthy1:

Think we can do a late May or June Saturday event ( outdoors before it gets too hot).

Will miss the pre-Xmas event (out of town guests), but will be with you in spirit!

We could move the date to the 22nd.

I will have to leave early but the 22nd is doable.

Thanks first to Doug and Joanie for their generous going on explosive hospitality. (Parenthetical thanks to their next-door neighbor, lawyer, lobbyist, and artist, for inviting me next door to look at his very likable art; the Japanese artist whose name I couldn't think of is Masami Teraoka.)

Next, to Lisa (Ethernautrix) for giving me a ride from and back to San Francisco. Also for bringing Michiko, her mother, aka The Mother, whom I had never met.

To gweddig, for some old Skrip that's more old-fashioned than most of the ink I normally use.

To Mickey, for musical conversation.

To FarmBoy, for taking a look at a misbehaving pen of mine. Oddly, it writes much better on the papers I use at home. I'll bring not only the pen but examples of its usual output to Peter's on a date not yet specified.

Will sing for meat chips.


Oh, really? I didn't hear any singing!

And the meat chips were great!

Again, thank you, Doug and Joanie. As usual, your hospitality and generosity rock.

Ahhh this sounds fun. When would the one on the 22nd / 23rd be? Being a college student, no access to a car is lame :c Would it be anywhere near Caltrain / Bart?

Peter's Cafe is maybe a hundred yards from the Millbrae Bart station. Time: Sunday, Dec. 23, from around 1:00 pm till whenever.

The liberty of the press is indeed essential to the nature of a free state; but this consists in laying no previous restraints upon publications, and not in freedom from censure for criminal matter when published. Every freeman has an undoubted right to lay what sentiments he pleases before the public; to forbid this, is to destroy the freedom of the press; but if he publishes what is improper, mischievous or illegal, he must take the consequence of his own temerity. (4 Bl. Com. 151, 152.) Blackstone's Commentaries

I checked the calendar and I just happens to be the day we scheduled Pen Posse WOB so you are in luck.
