I'm  like Brew CT, I  still use inks and a fountain pen. Trouble is no bugger wants to write to me. It's  all, "I'll text ya, or I'll  email ya". The art of writing seems to be dying.

Here are two bottles of ink from my desk drawer. I use a fountain pen for birthday and Xmas cards. Bottled ink keeps for an amazing length of time.

My handwriting has always been appalling and is now becoming painful to execute .  However, when I try to communicate my exquisite erudition and unparallelled prose via the alternate medium of the internet, I'm apt to find myself in receipt of criticism that my offerings are excessively verbose.  One simply cannot win!

DJ, you have reminded me, with the above,  about the New Zealand accent. When we were there, they were having a heatwave. We would put on the Morning Show on the telly while we got ready. The 2 hosts, a man and a woman would have a little banter. In N.Z. the letter e is pronounced i. So the woman asks the fella, 'are you going to sit on your dick this evening with a cold beyah? No, says he, I'm still working on it, it's not finished yet. We couldn't stop laughing. Next day, she asked if he got it finished? No says he, I'm still hammering nails in my dick. They were completely serious, it all sounded normal to them.
