    I had a few windfalls recently, so I bought a few pens. Now I've got unexpected expenses, and -- whew -- if I hadn't gotten the pens when I did, I wouldn't be able to justify getting them now!

    In the past few weeks I bought a Pelikan M205, an English Parker Duofold Junior, a Waterman Carène and a 1959 Soviet rocket ship-shaped desk set commemorating the Luna 2 unmanned landing on the moon.

    Here's a photo of the Carène, a quick snapshot with my phone. (This is the Pen Photos sub-forum, after all.) Still waiting for the rocket ship to arrive from the Ukraine.

    Nice!

    I haven't taken a photograph of my newest Al-Star (blue-green, but with the bronze cartridges). Other recent acquisitions have been various Chinese pens. I'd like some more Sharks perhaps.

    Sadly it was the only one I saw, back in 2014 - WHS went insane. If I had gone the day before (I didn't feel 100% so didn't go out), there would have been a few more pens - there would have been Parker pens too at ridiculous price, maybe other brands small WHS branches stock too.
