Writing contest entry

In my uber geeky world of fountain pen use, I cruise the Fountain Pen Network for conversations about using this archaic instrument of written mayhem. The Penmanship section can be inspiring. This thread A Contest Worth Writing For peaked my interest so I scrawled off an entry. I stand no chance at all in winning, but it was a fun diversion.

If you want to see some fantastic writing, read that thread. It just might encourage you to slow down your writing, grab a fountain pen and play around a little bit.

Labeling the parts

Here I am with the appropriate safety gear, having just labeled all of the parts of a porcine female reproductive tract.

This will explain why I have not been writing back to my pen friends. I will get back to it next week when I am home.

Fw: Reproductive dissection

Not letter related, but here is a group of my colleagues examining a sheep reproductive tract- the male type. Later I will be dissecting a female sheep reproductive tract. This is the start of week 2 of my class on animal science curriculum

#1 Son is home from college for a week or so but before he left New Orleans, he visited The Papier Plume and picked up a couple of nibs and two uber cool notebooks for his dad! Thanks Ross.

In the meantime, I am in Manhattan, Kansas for a two week course on a revolutionary Animal Science curriculum. It is good stuff, but geeze, I miss my family.
