A Job Well Done

Posted by Dirck on 10 August, 2012

Before getting down to Friday frivolity, let me be absolutely sincere– I find that my website has served one of the major purposes for which it was created.  Unfortunately, this is not one of the wealth-generating purposes, so Regular Job continues to figure in my life.  However, that was really only a minor purpose.  The major purpose, which is served by the appearance of this as one of the “Top Searches”…

…is the preservation of pens from well-intentioned but mis- or unguided efforts at preservation and repair.  To save having to go look at the full answer; the latter is deadly poison to a pen.

And now, I think, a little bit of a lullaby to see us all through to the end of the work-day. 

That concluding pen is, by the way, why people get so excited about Eversharp Skylines.

Today’s pen: Parker 75 Insignia
Today’s ink: Herbin Lis de Thé
