    I dbl-checked: from my friend, who was selling at the Ohio show: "My friend, Jon Tello, had his 7-year-old daughter along. She made some pens for the show! Sold 14 of them and practiced rehearsing her talk with people." How sweet is that?

    One of my favorite "pen show" images. I call it Blessing of the Pens.

    There seems to me several very good reasons for attending a pen show, the atmosphere, friendly knowledgeable dealers, with and without their hands in pockets! LOL seeing pens you have only seen in books, getting yr hands on a pen you have always wanted to purchase, seeing pens way beyond your budget. Trying inks in every color under the sun, and enjoying the hobby in so many ways.

    Nothing better than a pen show, Brian (except maybe a book fair!).

    You meet the best people, like Susan, sadly no longer with us. You can make real friends. You learn more in a day than you could online in a year. And delightful socializing! In a world becoming a carnival of chaos, this is like going back to a small town in the fifties!! Life is always good at the pen show.
