    Default Hello From Dallas

    Happy to find the forum.....started using fountain pens over 65 years ago, but only used casually over the years, and, unfortunately, I had to use ballpoints of gels at work (retired police officer). Not really a collector, but that could change!

    Only 4 fountain pens currently: Mont Blanc 149 Med, Mont Blanc Slimline Fine, Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Fill with stub nib, FPR Ebonite Jaipur V2 with stub nib. I'm looking forward to some interesting reading!

    Home is in Dallas, but part of the year is spent at a second home in Northern Colorado.

    Hey, oldCop. Are you at the Colorado house when the Denver Pen Show comes around? (This year October 9-11).

    Hey oldCop! Thank you for being the blue line that keeps me safe! I appreciate police (my older brother is a retired Colorado State Patrol). I'm glad you are here. Thanks for investing in the Colorado economy with your house. If you ever get to Pueblo, I'll take you out for the gastronomic feast of a Pueblo Green Chili Slopper - the finest food on the face of the earth!
