A LECAI fountain pen is coming my way from China. Interesting looking pen, unbelievably inexpensive, and it will be my first eyedropper pen. It comes with a hypodermic needle for refill purposes, which I plan to completely avoid in favor of an actual eyedropper. I should have it in my hands soon. It arrived in New York a few days ago, and is now on its way to Michigan. Looking forward to filling the pen, and taking it for a spin.
Regards,

Ray

Waiting on a TWSBI ECO-T, which I should have in the next day or so. I love my TWSBI ECO, so pretty sure this is going to be great, 

Also waiting for my Scriptorium Zehyr, but that is going to be coming in late 2018.

Would You please elaborate?

English is not my primary language. If I have made a mistake, then so be it.

But You try and write something in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian or German and then we can compare.

I am thinking the reference is to the "Oxford comma".

I think it was intended as a humorous way to say that your sig line needs a comma.

 

It's a play on your words, which should read: A man's character is revealed in his handwriting.

Yah, it wasn't funny and less a play on words and more just being snobbish and rude.


A voice:  I'll write pages and pages, days upon days, to be able to breathe out a few lines,

I'll do whatever it takes to breathe out those few lines, where the breath breathes out on its own, in on its own,

To thine own...

...breath on its own.

Yeah, it wasnt the most sensitive gag, speaking as an EFL teacher and translator learning Norwegian! But then, Amanda, it should also be an apostrophe, not a comma! Natives make mistakes too!

But we could all just try to get over it

And read about my new pen mail! Cycling across the fields this morning in the freezing cold to get to work, and my friend pulls up on his motorbike (bright red, just like Santas sleigh, maybe?!), flags me down, and hands me the package Ive been waiting for for about three months its a Jackdaw, an English pen, via some Maoris, back to the pakeha, and across the ocean in the hands of a world renowned Okinawan karate master, to my mate and sometime training partner and his Santa bike in a frosty field!

Havent opened it yet, but that cant be many better sagas for receiving pen mail!

I've opened it... It's marvelous! Full flex extra fine, all original nib and fittings, just needs a new sac and some cleaning. In the end I got it for free because my mate's folk are diamonds.

Oh, and on punctuation... It seems posting on an iPhone deletes all your apostrophes...!
