Moose got a bath this morning, and is now exhausted. 🐶

Time to do some bike maintenance. The bottom bracket on my Moonlander started creaking last time I rode it. 🚵‍♂️

I absolutely love this pen, a limited edition Karas Decograph, 049/100, with a smooth cursive italic medium 14k nib. Fantastic writer, and the material is beautiful. 🖋

The views and scenery are what makes central NY beautiful.

Getting somewhat excited for the new iPhone release this fall. I think I’ll be read to upgrade from my 6S Plus that I’m currently using. Not looking forward to the new price tag, but I think 4 years out of a mobile pocket computer is pretty damn good, and I’ll do it again.

This one is too good not to share, good taste, and it has a nice peppery bite.

Game night this afternoon. Played a round of Mystic Vale, 2nd time playing it, very interesting mechanics, but really enjoyable. Then we played some Elder Sign. Failed miserably the first time, all three of use got devoured twice in the first 3 rounds. Second game went better, but ran out of time before we could finish the game. 🎲


Local fountain pen club (GNYPIG) meetup. Pens and inks have spread out every where.

Inspired by @cygnoir‘s post, I put together a currently inked list.

Managed to get out for a fantastic bike ride after work this evening. The trails were mostly dry and fast. 🚵‍♂️

He’s middle aged now, but still an amazing dog. Moose still wants to go for his long walks, but we are starting to need to cut them back a bit for him now.

He still thinks he’s a lapdog, and when it’s time for a walk, it’s time for a walk, but we still love him.

Took some work but I’ve got the skinny bike ready to hit the trails again. I haven’t ridden it in probably at least 4 years, so it will be nice to have a light and fast bike again.

Put together a nice little fire pit for the backyard. Should be able to put it to use next weekend.

Deleted my Instagram account. It was my last link to Facebook Co. and it feels good to get away, even though I know they’ll still track me with a shadow profile.

Haven’t posted a currently inked fountain pen photo over here, so figured now is a good time to do so.
