I've missed a few weeks, so... since anyone can "call for a posse" and I'm an "anyone"...

 

Pen Posse:

 

Sunday Nov. 17th

 

1:00 pm

 

Peter's Cafe

Would someone please pass this on the FB group. Thanks.

Crickets? Did you mean armadillos? I don't pretend to understand the zoological aspect of Pen Posse communication.

 

On the other hand, I think that to support the anyone-can-call-a-Pen-Posse principle I'll plan to show up. Whether some public-spirited Facebook user will repost this to FB remains to be seen. One of the ideas Ethernautrix put forward is that you have to be prepared for the possibility that nobody else will show up.

 

If the word spreads, let me add as a request that I'd like to try the relatively new Moonman #6 fine nib, used in the M600S and in several earlier Moonman pens, IIRC. I hope something magical happens, we have a full house, and someone offers me a Moonman to try. I am too old not to believe in magic, disenchanted as I was at the age of twelve.

So you are saying we need to choose which one we attend?

Even if I don’t tell them where I go they find me. Some times I mess with them just for fun so they have something to report.

So, not seeing any notice of a posse last weekend, the 8th, I just showed up at 
Peter’s. Ended up watching a coup log good BBC mysteries by myself... the next day or two, though, I heard y’all were in Emeryville instead.

 

Sure would be nice to let us know other than on FB.

How did you find out they posted a notice on FB?

My experience was quite different.  I went to Peter's this week and was greeted by a nice crowd.  I was booed for being tardy but I got over it quickly.

 

NOTE: I gambled as I didn't see any posting!

A friend PM’ed to tell me y’all were in Emeryville.

 

Glad you got lucky last Sunday. After being alone, I just felt that debugging a new computer made more sense than driving to eat by myself.

 

you *really* didn’t know folks were going to be there?

 

any guess for pre-Xmas Sunday?
