The only drawback is you have to come to New York State and like the wines from Tuscany.

 

As in downstate.  That is a drawback.  Upstate/Finger Lakes is pretty nice.  I always hated and hate driving in downstate traffic.

I have a friend who says he hails from "the middle Finger Lake".

I know two A-class Nibmeisters.  Both are married.  However, there may be some interest in a mistress.  Please post resumé and photos.   :rolleyes:

LOL


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I understand.  The drivers down here are getting worse by the minute.

Oh, no, I think photos of the nibs are necessary.   :D

I understand.  The drivers down here are getting worse by the minute.

Y'all wait just a darned minute there...I'm one of those downstate drivers!  We just have a different set of skills.  We know how to drive like the cabbies do -- go right before left turn only streets, left before right turn only streets.  We know that speed limits inside NYC are only advisory.  We know that the first thirty seconds of a green pedestrian signal are for the pedestrian but after that it's the driver's turn.  We know that anyone turning right on a red has to be from Pennsylvania or upstate.  Most important, we know which streets to use when the upstate folks are clogging up the main ones...

My problem is remembering the other rules when I leave NYC!

The last time I drove in New York City I was on the expressway and the guy next to me made a very sharp right turn and drove down an on-ramp. Impressive.

I had a look in my To-Be-Repaired drawer this morning: it was dispiriting.

Marrying a nib-tinkerer may be an extreme solution, but my last husband was a computer nerd. How different could it be?

 

You could learn to do it yourself.

I bought a book...it seems daunting and requires many tools.

 

And perhaps more patience than I've actually got.

Perhaps we should start to look at furniture? 


Anyone like Ray Bradbury? Please read "The Laurel and Hardy Love Affair" if you have about 12 minutes.

When do you want to get married? Are you ready to pick out the furniture?
