I’ve been using fountain pens on and off since I was in university; about a year ago that interest got a good deal more serious (it was the pandemic and I needed a distraction), and between us Jen and I began accumulating pens and inks at a ridiculous rate. Two of our first bottled inks were blue inks with some unusual qualities; after a year of using them fairly frequently, I have some thoughts about them.
Month: May 2021
Since I posted two weeks ago that we weren’t doing that well out here COVID-wise, I thought I’d mention that things are now looking a bit better. We only had 14 new cases over the past week, compared to 51 new cases two weeks ago. Almost all of those new cases—11 out of 14—are in the Fort-Coulonge/Mansfield area, whose local outbreak may actually be showing signs of running out of steam. Shawville hasn’t had a new case in a week, Campbell’s Bay longer than that. The special emergency measures come to an end on the 17th, as they do for the rest of the Outaouais, at which point we’re back in the red zone.
