Pen friends in the US are celebrating Thanksgiving this week and the countdown to Black Friday begins! It got me thinking that a holiday gift guide would be helpful. This guide is primarily intended for the non-pen person looking for a gift for the fountain pen aficionado, whether newbie or seasoned, in his or her life.
We hung out around home for the Labour Day weekend, however, my little guy _did_ want to spend a day at Canada's Wonderland. He's sprouted a few inches since the last time we went and was ready to take on some thrill rides. Of course we obliged.
I prepared what I was going to bring the night before the outing. I was expecting long waits in the blazing sun, complete soakings from the water rides and violent agitation from the roller coasters. Light but durable were the themes of the day in terms of writing instruments and stationery.
