Halloween Pens

A natural theme for an October meeting – Halloween pens, those that are orange, etc… It is actually surprising how many orange pens there are beyond the Big Red Duofold (is it orange or red??) as can be seen in these great photos from our meeting (taken by Rick and David):

“Green Day” at the LPC (Photos)

Yes, as promised, here are the photos taken by LPC member Rick (thanks Rick!) at our celebration of everything green (at least, all fountain pen related stuff that is green) on March 20, 2010.  The first pictures are those of the ink bottles that we dipped with a Q-tip to create the swabs/ink scans in my first blog post.  The next are the fabulous pens that everyone brought out.  Check out the mint emerald Vac set – rumour has it that the owner bought it for $40 on Ebay!  Quite the sumgai, if I do say so myself!
