    Thank you so much, Mack. I guarantee I never had such a beautiful pen. Thank you, thank you. Now I'm starting to feel kinda bad.....I just sent him a pumpkin..... and a knife to carve it

    See what a fabulous Family you belong to here! Gifts fall out of the sky!

    That is a pen to be cherished. He is a master pen maker. Now you gotta pass on the deed as well as send him a thank you of some sort.

    I can vouch for Macks pen making skills. Lucky enough to have been given a good few and more lucky to have seen his whole stock first hand. I can tell you when faced with them all you just cannot choose.

    Good for you Mack nice gesture.

    Great experience Eh Cynthia!

    As to the pumkin and carving knife Cynthia, i was always taught its not the gift itself, its the thought that went into it. You did very good with paying it forward already. (Which is why i hate the gift card industry its a thoughtless way out.)

    My pumpkin is still next to my computer, i hope this type harden so i can keep it. Chocolate did not last a minute though Yet to try the knife.
    cheers

    Hi Cynthia; I must admit the PO had me worried. First-class mail should have delivered it last week.

    Not really rubies (only in colour) -- Swarovski Ruby Red crystals!

    I'm so glad you like it. My pleasure, more than yours! No special thank you required.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Great stuff goes on here. Generous gesture Mack. Well done.

    P.s. Take caution. I think its a lure toward the dark side . . . .
