    My wife has been working on me about this. She knows I wanted to go, she also knows why I got cold feet. She also, also knows how to apply subtle pressure on me.

    Then I received a lovely letter from an American penfriend which included the promotional postcard with the front design by Lisa Miyako (ethernautrix?). It's a great cover! (could be a pen, could be an object of interest at a crime scene, heh).

    Anyway, between this and that, and assuming that the funding for the trip to the UK eventuates (which at the moment is uncertain), it looks as though I will be able to have a day at the show. My wife is hoping there will something for her to do while I examine all the pens I cannot afford but as noted before there is nothing listed on the website that I can see.


    And, even though I don't anticipate any enthusiasm for the idea, I would be somewhat humbled if any Geeks would like to meet and say hi.

    Hello EoC, I still haven't decided which day to visit the show. We may bump into one another - how will I know you? Oh yes, the one with a bored wife sitting in a corner. But there may be more than one bored wife / geek husband combination!

    Wonderful that you both may be able to attend the pen show. Hope the funds come through for you EoC! Could you post a picture of the promotional postcard by ethernautrix? It's not posted anywhere at the SF Pen Show website or their Facebook page.

    Anyone know who is doing the limited edition ink for the SF Show?

    All the Best.

    As I understand it, the post cards are generally unique with several different ones each year. A new one will be out at the LA show this weekend.

    Hey RWS, the funding is looking very promising right now. As soon as it is resolved and I have booked my tickets I will let you know what days I am going to be there. We expect to be in San Fran for 3 days (that will include all the pen show days), so we can be quite flexible. It would be super to meet another enthusiast, and as you are the only one to express such an interest in doing so, it looks like you are it!

    Hello EoC, I'll correspond nearer the time, when I have firmed up my itinerary.

    Woohoo!

    Funds have come through - and now for the tricky part, arranging flights, accommodation, connections, and car hire, so that they all line up. First big trip since our wedding in Shanghai in Feb 2018, and I haven't been back to the UK since 2007. Wonder how different it will be compared to rose-tinted memory.
