A very prophetic ad for Parker Duofolds. There are still loads of these pens around today and all they need is a new sac to be in working order again. I've heard stories of people inheriting these pens from grandparents, great grandparents, a great aunt or uncle (unfortunately I'm not that lucky) and they are usually glad to have them and sometimes want to know more about them if they are new to the world of fountain pens.

I also wanted to just stop in and show everyone I'm not dead. In fact I've been really busy and haven't had much of any interest to blog about. But I am pleased to write I'm now hired full time at a local branch of a nation wide printing company (thankfully not the one that is associated with a mailing company and has store fronts in strip malls, this is the real deal only interested in skilled labor and paying good wages), I work forty-eight hours a week Monday through Thursday so that doesn't leave me much free time during the week. Despite this I'm going to try to make an effort to post more often. Anyway what good is a blog if it just sits there with the same old posts for weeks on end?
