Tom, you are my hero. Keep spreading the word of how much fun these nibs are in real life usage and we might have to add scones with jam to the repertoire. Happy new year!

Tom, you are having way too much fun on this thread, as are we.

 

You've got me regretting not trying the the wide options for longer in the boutique. I write small so I got the fine.  It's great, but I always liked a fine italic when they were available (parker).  For now, reverse writing on the fine gets me exactly what I wanted, but with a too much feedback.

Like the old song about a sailor who means to retire from the sea, who carries an oar on his shoulder walking inland until nobody recognizes what it is, I someday hope to road trip south from where I live now until I can hold up the scraper section of my roof rake, and not a single soul will recognize it because there's never snow on the roof.  In such a place, I might consider settling down after retiring.

Come to the San Francisco area. Lots of food, culture, wine and art. The last snow we had was not too bad -only an inch or so... in 1976.

The house next door to me is for sale. How many bedrooms you need? Snowed in 1988. Before that in the 1940s, I think.

Judging by the Quebec tags in the grocery store parking lot this week, you aren't alone.  :lol:
