Hello everybody,

 

I'm a sixty years old Math teacher with a lifelong passion in fountain pens.

 

Having read a couple of useful discussions on this Forum, I decided to join in.

 

Nice to meet you all,

 

Paolo

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

 

I'm also 60 years old, with a lifelong passion for fountain pens - BUT - Mathematics scare the living daylights out of me. 


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!

- Winston Churchill

Welcome sir.

None of us knows how long he shall live or when his time will come. But soon all that will be left of our brief lives is the pride our children feel when they speak our names.

I'm very sorry to hear that... It's nothing personal, believe me! :)
