look, dick and jane.

See Jenny’s planner.

See, see.

It is red. It is Moleskine.

It is an eighteen-month Pocket Weekly Diary from July 2008 to December 2009.

Jenny writes on it with a fountain pen.

Look at the fountain pen.

Look, look.

It is brown. It is old.


It is a 1944 double-jewel Parker Vacumatic with a 14-karat gold stiff extra-fine nib lovingly restored by Butch Palma.


See the pen and the planner.

They are pretty.

Very, very pretty.

Maybe they will help Jenny be more organized and productive and less apt to procastinate and forget important tasks and meetings.

Maybe, maybe.

    Lovely Vacumatic. Reminds me I have one that needs restoration still.

    Jenny, Thanks for the invite. I’d like nothing better except but I’m thwarted by 8,000 miles! However, I do enjoy your posts about the penmeets. The pictures and text certainly make me feel like I’ve stopped by to watch the fun. Leigh is a friend of mine and I always love any pictures of her doing calligraphy and shaming my scrawly handwriting. Since your inspiration I’ve disassembled my Vac and once I get a part will be happily giving it new life. :D

    Hi, Coleen! Thanks for visiting my blog. I got the red Moleskine last year at Fully Booked at Power Plant mall, Rockwell. :) You can still get the 2009 planners – they’re on sale now. They have them in red patent and black patent. :)
