    There is so much to say about this trip, but I've decided to say it all in pictures. I'll start a separate thread that tells the full story. This thread is just the pictures. Such is the life of a former photojournalist. :D

    It means something to fountain pen collectors. It comes from the idea of a fountain pen collector going to a garage sale and asking, "Do you have any fountain pens???" . . . and the seller responding, "Well, I did, but I just sold a handful to some guy for $5.00." "Some guy" = SUMGAI. The guy that got there first.
