years (decades?) ago i bought a pen and pencil set. i used the pen for ages (i could never get the pencil to work properly - jammed with wrong-sized lead i think?) and then i set it aside for one reason or another, and then the bladder wore out, and then it sat on a shelf for years waiting for repairs.
finally, the day has come! my pen was repaired by peel pen shop, and returned to my hot little hands last night! the pencil is working now, too. hooray!
it's a waterman ink-vue in "silver ray" pattern, from 1932. they don't make them like they used to!
