Filling the ‘Robert Bishop’ Swan Mabie Todd fountain pen. A train of thought as eyes swept table. Weird how your mind chitter chatters to itself.
Do some writing today for a change……not! How did that expression start? That ‘Not!’ “Of course I’ll write something. As sure as eggs is eggs”. Why did I say that out loud? Need to check the pens. The Bishop? Dry! Hope I don’t spill this ink as pen introduced to glass ink pot. Hold the barrel tight! Balance. Bakelite is beautiful isn’t it? Three or four or more lever pulls? Great no accidents. Tighten up that ink pot top. That time ink was in the carrier!
VeeDub today? Yeh! Why not? Need a hat. Sunshine and loss of crown hair don’t like each other. Old age! Stress more like! How come Dad has a whole head full? Bucket hat will do nicely. Bit of poetry too. Put them here. Too forgetful lately. Could write a bit of the faves found down. Great possible lyric that. ‘Write Your Faves Found Down’. Nice coffee. Paradiso is such a great coffee. Especially in the Stanley. Take the Stanley or use the cups in the VeeDub? Oh! Actually what cups are in the VeeDub? My memory! Awful presently. Got the Spong grinder in the Dub. Beans! Need coffee beans to take. Look at this stuff. Vintage! Always vintage.
Vintage. Is everything here vintage? Nah! That RN fob. That’s new. Mind you. What’s not to like here? On this table. What’s actually really not to love? That RN fob? Wasn’t too bad…..nursing. What would Sherlock Holmes gather from all this stuff. Holding it under his magnifying glass. Analysing and identifying past owners. No problem with Robert Bishop hey! What is here? Write it down. ‘Write Your Faves Found Down’. What! I actually gave it a tune! Old scrappy wallpaper. Always old scrappy wallpaper. Obsessed. See if the Bishop nib behaves this time. Well the Sheaffer ink crawls a bit doesn’t it? Wet behind the ears. Me too. Nah! I’m drenched behind the ears. Great no ink blob. Got the five pens for this months use as per blog promise. Four here? Oh, the Kaweko. My memory hey? “Oy! Kaweko! Stop hiding. Come and join the party”. Said that out loud too. Talking to myself! Now? Talking to a pen. Now I’m just being silly! I remember Felicity Kendall saying that to Jerry. ‘Now you’re just being silly’………….It’s a Good Life.
