Who Are You?
Many of them came from eBay. I'm partial to Sheaffer, Cross and Parker models, with a few PaperMate's thrown in. They're not expensive-- just middle of the road stuff.
Some were purchased new. Others are used, and that brings us to today's entry.
I recently bought a batch of old, used pens in an eBay auction. They were good ones-- a steal. Either the owner didn't appreciate what he had, or didn't care.
A silver Cross pen was engraved with the name "Jennie Rose." I should have asked the seller "Who was Jennie Rose?" and "Why did she no longer need her very nice pen?" "Is she still alive?"
I wonder how many things Jennie wrote with that pen. It was worn. You could tell. Checks, letters, notes...
Where are you, Jennie Rose?
