    I'm glad you and your family are safe and didn't have serious damage. That's sad about your mango tree, though. 😞
    Thanks Laura. I only shudder to think what would have happened if we had gotten a direct hit. Although Andrew did 10x more destruction, it was in and out in about 3 hours. Irma was an uninvited guest that wouldn't leave.

    The hardest part was trying to keep our autistic daughter from thermonuclear meltdown. No power meant no internet and no YouTube.

    I'll trade you all the mango and avocado trees in Miami for some mid-Atlantic weather right about now.

    I can see why you say that. It's great here today around 80 without much humidity, also with no rain either.

    It was out since Monday at dawn. In Miami heat and humidity, it may as well have been last year. Having to put up with the in-laws for 3 days was a test Jesus didn't need to put me through. We're gonna have a chat when this is over.

    I honest thought you weren't going to get it back until early next week.

    Sorry to hear about the in-laws. That's rough.

    Nice! I'm into fountain pens myself. What model is that? Looks a lot like my black Pilot Metropolitan.

    It is the Pliot Metropolitan fountain pen. Model number is Z-CS-MR2-S1-IC.

    That's an excellent pen that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Enjoy!

    Made it to the concert. Got lost trying to find food so I gave up and ate my snacks.* Just waiting for everything to begin

    * This is not a traditional concert venue so there's food trucks but I didn't want anything there. No non fried options. Lol.

    I'm not into reds too much either especially cars. The last red car I had was a Triumph Spitfire about 25 years ago.

    A red pen at a meeting will probably draw some looks though. Y'all got me thinking now.

    Wow!! I haven't used a fountain pen in ages.
    Come to think of it, I'm so dependant on using computers and emails I hardly handwrite anything beyond scribbling quick short notes. It's regretful to realise my penmanship has gone to the dogs.

    I'm right there with you. I had to write a check the other day (young people: don't ask) and I was appalled at how bad my handwriting had gotten. I never had good penmanship to begin with but ugh! Most of my notes are on Graffiti with my T/X so that's not helping.

    That's what's cool about doing things old school and bringing back some of the pleasure of writing with a fine fountain pen, shaving with a double edge razor or telling time with a mechanical time piece. It counters all the easy yet intrusive electronics we have in our lives.

    Same here. I used to write so beautiful in high school and then it went to hell in a hand basket in college.
