Sorry this has taken so long. For those of you who don't know, I was very sick with stage iv colon cancer this last year, but I have great news -the oncologist has declared I'm cancer free!  I will still be sending out packages to all of you as indicated, and you are still getting exciting stuff.  @DromgoolesHoustonsent me some stuff to share.  I may not be shipping until week after next, but please forgive the delay.  If I still have energy, I will get packages made up today for shipping tomorrow.  I'm trying to keep the shipping cost under $6.

That's magnificent news on all counts! So glad to hear of the clean bill of health.

Also, one you of you will be getting a CRV request.

 

 

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

@amberleadavis

I'm glad you're doing better! That is great news! 

You are the driving force in mine and, I'm sure, many people's ink addictions! :D

 

oh, btw, re crayons melting in vegas, (I always get a laugh when I read your signature block): having spent a week or so there in Aug 2018, I don't doubt that for a minute! :)

 

 

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.

This weekend we had the Las Vegas version of being snowed in  ... it was too hot to get LIFT.

Yep - I was there for a short time.  Had several appointments, including Mr. Hill.  I drove in Thursday night and high tailed it out of Vegas on Friday afternoon.  It was crushingly hot!  When I arrived in Reno 8 hours later, it was only 95 at 9:00p.m.  Today it was only 105 here.

Sorry I didn't get to meet you, but I hope we can meet up in the future.  AND 105 in Reno is dang hot.

I am sure that we will sometime in the not too distant future.  I seem to be going through Vegas more now than I have in the past.  I might be back through there sometime in the next month or so.  I will email you when I firm up the schedule.

Thank you, @amberleadavis and@DromgoolesHouston!
 

The assortment of brown inks is perfect!

 

I will try out all the goodies soon and post reviews. (I need to find a convertor or cartridge for the Parker; I think I gave away my Parker cartridges in a PIF once upon a time.)

Got it! I have a few pens already inked that should be perfect for the CRVs. 
 

Also, what is the name of the pen? I can’t find anything about it—the black and red F nib plastic Parker, seemingly a “school pen”? I’m looking forward to using it.

I'd love to try some Colorverse inks. I had a sample of Quasar that I thought was amazing, but was put off buying a whole bottle due to the cost. I lived in Korea for a couple of years when I was young, so am interested in Colorverse as a Korean company, and I work in aerospace (satellites, not planes) so love the idea of the astronomy themed color names.

 

Thank you, @amberleadavis, for the Colorverse NASA Blue ink! My review:

Good idea!  I sent over a thousand handwritten cards to people in nursing homes while I was convalescing. Playing with my pens and ink made me feel much better.

I tried to match up inks based on what people said that they liked.

Well, that was over an extended period of time and I didn't write much in each of them, usually about 2 sentences.

They say mental health plays a larger role in physical recovery than originally thought :)

so... does this create a new domain?...

The Healing Power of Fountain Pens!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
