I'd be happy with a bottle of ink. The chances of it being a pen (here) would be vanishingly small - assuming we even had a tree of course!

 

So, OP, the big reveal as it happens please! :D

 

I would also be happy with a bottle of ink. I don't expect a MB pen to be within the budget.

Anyway, off to visit my family now.

given the aboveaverage size of the middleage clientele I rubbed shoulders with at MB Boutique in recent weeks, I am indeed thankful MB doesn't market lingerie! :lol:
yet :P
Shoppers at La Perla down the road appear to be of a more svelte appetite.


Loathe La Perla. They make cup sizes up to oh-my-God, but refuse to produce a band width to stretch around any rib size other than tiny or emaciated. Normal sized women need not bother.

I have all the MB products I need, except a 1920's Safety Pen with a weak kneed wet noodle.

 

OK, I'd take something from the '30's too....if they are being given away.

 

My '50's set is has a semi&maxi so I'm good there.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Hey there,

 

Sorry to keep my fans waiting, but stuff came up.

 

Anyway, this was in the bag.

 

...

 

Ok, now it seems I can't put up any photo's from my smartphone. With me working in IT, and thousands of engineers working hard on "user experience".

And the scary part is: these are the guys who are working on self driving cars !

Yeah, maybe you should beat technology at its own game and just tell us what you got b/c I'm getting the same thing. :D

With thanks to my Mom & Dad; who taught me to run free, but not run wild.

Please pray the Rosary daily. Thank You, St. Jude, for favors granted. :)

Grab life with both arms and give it a bear hug every day! :D
