French Quarter Pens

I finally found a pen I love and will not loose… well almost never loose. I was given a peweter dragon pen from French Quarter Pens a couple years ago and for the longest time I never lost it, misplaced it yes, but always found it. One day, on my way to the bus my purse went upside down in the car and partially out into the snow! I thought I’d lost my beloved pen forever and couldn’t find it anywhere. So for Christmas I was given a replacement. A couple weeks later I was looking in the car for something else and found my original pen! I was delighted as I now have 2 of these beautiful pens!

They are heavy enough that they glide over the paper but don’t make your hand hurt like most heavier pens. Having it in my purse adds a little weight and so I know it’s always there! They are a delight to write with and frequently I bring out my pen specifically for meetings at work which causes discussions n good writing tools.

I ride the Valley Mover, a local bus system in Alaska and whenever someone needs a pen I’m quick to bring out my beautiful pen for loan. More than a few times the hour drive is spent talking about how wonderful the pen is and how well it writes along with where it was purchased!

We’ve also purchased several more pens and the accompanying letter openers and magnifying glass to give as gifts.

No, I get nothing but the satisfaction that I have helped several people find a lovely pen and a small business in Louisiana, all the way from Alaska!

I commute….

I commute on public transportation, therefore I am well rested — Commuter Bag

I commute by public transportation, in my case the Valley Mover Bus which is our local system that does long distance transit. I take the bus daily which saves wear on the car, gas, lowers my insurance bill and reduces the risk of ending up in a accident especially on bad winter roads and heavy rush hour traffic. The photo on the item is a local back road of the Mat-Su Valley of Alaska taken at sunset in the late summer!
Some of my other reasons for taking the bus are the social aspects. People love to just chat about various things. If there happens to be something news worthy most people have some sort of mobile device and the news of the day becomes the topic. A few weeks back there was a winter time fire about a mile from my house and the topic was where to go to get the latest information on the roads in the area. Many times the weather or traffic reports are handy and are relayed to the bus driver who can then warn later buses about delays. Sometimes it has even helped the driver take an alternate route and stay nearly on time despite the traffic. Another benefit is napping. Taking a nap before or after work just helps you stay low stress and feel refreshed for your day or evening ahead!
So I commute by public transportation, therefore I am well rested!
