    Default New From Plum Island, Newbury, Massachusetts

    Just posting to introduce myself. I've not had a fountain type pen since junior high school when I was growing up in Manhattan. Recently I became reinterested in pens. I've bought a number but I've only received one so far, a Lamy Safari, which I've started journaling with. Several other which should be arriving before too long include several Montblancs and a Pelikan. I'll have the Pelikan before I have ink to use it. I think I've done buying for a bit. Also I purchased a pen made for Ridge by Fisher (Bullet Space Pen) which I like because of its small size and easy coupling with their wallets.

    As far as background is concerned, I'm an engineer working in Semiconductors. My back ground is reasonably diverse with degrees in General Studies (predominantly English and Biology) and Chemical Engineering. My interests are pretty much as diverse as my educational background.

    Glad to be a part of the forum. "Hello" from the beach (chilly as it may be today). Also glad to keep the streak of New England/Massachusetts new members going.

    Likely as I'm in the part of the US called New England. Likely come commonality there. I was at a 12 step meeting once in Amesbury (near by) and a couple were there because they were from Amesbury in the UK. They invited us to come and meet Slow Hand.

    My wife and I strap our bikes onto the back of our car and drive down to Newburyport every summer for a day of riding out from town to Plum Island (Sandy Point) and back and then a nice lunch in town and some visits to a few shops (Jabberwocky's, of course). One of our summer highlights. It helps to pick nice weather!

    added: We live in Maine.

    FWIW, I spent summer up on Sebego during high school as a camp councilor. Four summers spent there teaching sailing. We go up to Kittery pretty frequently to shop as well. Spent a few anniversaries up in Bar Harbor and Booth Bay as well. Plum Island is actually comprised of four towns. Starting from the north it's Newburyport, Newbury, Rowley, and Ipswich.
