My Pen...

Post by JMG » Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:59 pm

Coco made this pen for me some years ago. I carry it nearly every day, unless I'm in dressier clothes. I use it for pretty much everything, but it's my carpentry work companion. I keep a Fisher space pen cartridge in it. When he sent it to me, it was new and pretty. Now it is very used and a different kind of pretty. Thanks, Coco.

I think that's the name of Coco's memoirs.

It's more beautiful now than when it was new, I bet, now that it's appearance bears witness to the years of use and appreciation.

I have two very old fly boxes that my first wife gave me that are scratched to heck, and gorgeous for their history. I wouldn't take a hundred new ones in their place.

Character, bud. That pen, like its owner, has character.
