Hello from southwestern Wisconsin~   I've been reading the threads for quite a while and finally realized that I've grown quite attached to all things carved out by fountain pens. I have a Waterman Lady Charlotte (the blue lady)--a gift from my brother years ago. And last year I acquired a Pelikan 400. Since then I've learned so very much from all of you. So it seemed like the right time to join the conversation, novice though I still am. Thanks for the terrific reading and advice you all share so liberally!

Hi from the Milwaukee area! Southwest WI is beautiful - love driving through or camping at Governor Dodge. Oh, and Rural Route popcorn!

Nice pens BTW.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
