wow my apology as well since I have not been posting lately but had to share this gem

I found this little gem in the thrift store a couple of days ago and it winds up at the bottom and the bird actually chirps it is so sweet I have to wind it every day to hear it . Being as I have had to re home my birds three years ago due to a severe allergy which almost resulted in my demise , this is a cute option for those of us who are allergic to caged pet birds . another plus is you don't have to feed it or clean up after it . I love it and it is so cute . well just thought I would share this with all of my readers . take care all and stay safe .the cold and flu is running rampant in my part of the country so remember to wash your hands like a fiend folks .

my thoughts of the election today

Forgive me readers if I go off track a lil bit today . Normally I don't use this blog as a political sounding board but today if you will bear with me will be a little different . You don't have to agree with my politics , few do . But if you feel like commenting please do so all I ask is that you be respectful of my opinion . In other words NO CUSSING at me because you don't agree with me . Now I was watching CNN last night which I hardly ever do but one commentator said that 50% of the news are predicting a republican sweep of both the house and senate and we have no one to blame except Obama . He has made such a mess of the democratic side that people now want to give the republicans back the chance to set this country back on the right track . Just a personal opinion here but I think it will take a lot of years to put this country back on track be it republican or democrat , man or woman . I myself would like to see a woman become president yes women are still considered a minority in this country , which is a whole other matter entirely best left for another post . My point being that most people seeing that the whole political world in this country is going to vote republic this time which means quite an upset for the whole democratic agenda . Also want to add that most likely it will be some time before a minority will fill the seat again if ever okay fellow readers , just my two cents . Have a wonderful day and get out and vote ...Im off to do so myself .

More mail art yeah !!!!

More mail art going out to a pen pal I hope they enjoy receiving these as much as I enjoy drawing and creating them . I would hate to think that they pay little attention to them and I also like thinking that the postal workers like my art as well at least I hope I make their day a little nicer ...Oh well not much else to write about or blog about rather .

Jinhao T1 shooter series

Okay here we go . Got this yesterday in the mail and it is the Lamy safari knockoff from Jinhao . It is called the Jinhao T1 shooter series and I must say it is a nice pen , writes well and is very light . I was impressed and for the money you cannot go wrong I paid all of 3.69 dollars for it . Yes you read that right three dollars and sixty nine cents for it . For the money you cannot go wrong with this pen and I like it . It write well there is no scratchiness on paper etc . I really cannot say enough nice things about it . Yes , yes I know how some pen people say Lamy got ripped but I don't think so cause there are enough differences in this pen and the Lamy safari series to see the difference . But really for some of us who cannot spend 200 + on a fountain pen it is a really nice pen to add to the collection . And as for me personally I would be sick to think that I had lost a 200 + dollar pen . At 3.69 I could afford to replace this pen if ever lost and that is pretty nice sense of confidence to me . Well just my two cents for the day .
