Hello From An Oregon Newby

Hi All,

Although I've always liked the idea of fountain pens and have had a couple fairly nice ones over the years, it has only been this year that I've gotten interested enough to pursue it as a hobby. It was a chance find at an antique store that did it: A blue pearl striped wartime Duofold for $24 which, after some restoration, became a fantastic pen. I've acquired a few more wartime Parkers and Sheaffers; that seems to be the era that appeals to me most.

 

I'm looking forward to making connections here, and availing myself of the wealth of information here on this forum.

 

Walt

Hi, Walt, fellow Oregonian,

 

With weed now legal, there will be less traffic on the Hood River bridge over to Bingen, WA

 

Pens are at least as interesting as apples!

 

Best,

 

Dick
