Just wanted to be first in congratulating FPN admin for doing what the users want. Excellent stuff. This is why FPN rocks.

Bravo, Apollo & Amin for taking on the task! :)

 

With just 2 Parkers, I'll be reading more than posting, but I'll bet it will be a busy forum!

 

I thought "Apollo's Arrows" for a topic title recently sounded almost mythical! :D

 

Best, Ann

Thanks for the kind words, Ann. I've got a soft spot for those arrows (Parkers) :D

Thanks raf! Definitely is the place to be ;). Many thanks to Stylo and Denis (I'm assuming it was you guys?) for moving the Parker threads here!

I'd like to add my congratulations to the double A team (AA in more ways than just one...:) ) for bringing us the Parker Forum. I too have a few and they are among my favorite pens (don't tell Brian :o ).

 

Onward and upward...

Embarrassed of their Parkers? There's nothing to be embarrassed about with Parkers. Even the legendary Noble Savage who's known in certain circles as the notorious "Bexley Bandit" has a couple of Parkers! :D

 

Hey, TNS! This one's for you buddy.

BAM!!!

This is wonderful news. I've got several vintage Parkers, and a 75 that's getting a nib grind, I'll be here a lot, they're my favorite. Congratulations Amin and Apollo--Apollo I assume you're enjoying that 45 I traded to you!

Great News...

 

Of all my pens, Parkers are the most numerous, though all vintage. I look forward to discussion on vintage Duofolds..... :eureka: , my favorites.

 

All the best to the new Moderators as well. I look forward to learning more.

Hear, hear.

 

And I too will be reading far more than posting (at least in the Parker forum), for as of the moment, I am Parker-free :blink: :( :blink: ! (still a bit of ingrained heresy, I guess :P )

Ruaidhri, that sounds like an amazing collection of Parkers you've got there. Care to share some pics?

 

As for embarrassment anout Parkers - with G saying not to tell the other admins and Gerry saying not to tell Brian - I was only joking of course ;).

I've got a serious Parker 51 obsession, I probably should seek out help. In the mean time though, I've been thinking of looking at some 21s and 45s.. How do they compare to the 51?

 

 

Also, does anyone know of a good source for 51 fine or extra fine nibs? I've got some medium nibs that I can't stand.

I have spent more money on pens, fountain pens and otherwise (yes, I admit it, I frequently use a Mont Blanc Le Grand ballpoint and some others), and the best pen I have ever owned was a Parker 51, Blue Diamond, vacummatic, which was bought (by my fiance, now my wife) for 20 bucks at a flea market back in the early 90s. I lost it, to my likely eternal dismay, in the summer of '92, while spending the summer in Columbia, South Carolina. I have bought others since, but for some reason, none have quite matched up (though perhaps grief and nostalgia have caused my memory of the lost pen to be a little unrealistic).

 

What a pleasure it is to join this forum.

 

By the way, Garythepenman, do you happen to practice law in Washington D.C.?

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
