2000th Post
Permalink Closed


Well gang our little site is still growing & thriving a year & a half after it's birth. I can't say how happy that makes me. My thanks to all of our contributingmembers.
We are coming up on 2000 posts& should be there before too long. To celebrate ourmini milestone,I have an elegant jet black w/ gold trim classic FP for the lucky 2000th poster. I'm not going to say what the pen is other than it's made by one of the 'Big 4' manufacturers in the mid 1940's and is one amazing writer.

Good luck to all & I'll see you in the forums.
Dennis~DWL~Lively

If I post daily, does that increase the odds that I win the prize for the 2000 post? Hardly, I never win anything!

I believe DWL was offering the prize.
I don't know for sure but I think he's
the one that came up with it. So he has
retired now. Who's running the show?

I do not believe Dennis has retired as of yet! Even if he does before the 2000th post is achieved, I'm sure the person in charge can come up with something.

Maybe something "nice" can be purchased with donations to FPCN!

Exactly! But WHO is in charge.
Person in charge...? Hello?

I don't think we will here from
old Dennis, his Email & homepage
are black. I have been trying to get
my property back from him for months
now. My 100 year pen a jewel I might add.
My first year "51" dbl jewel and a black "51"
with a sterling top. He switched barrels on
the first year "51" and sent me some
no date dog in it's place. OH yeah, he did...
believe it! That's a thousand dollars worth.
Mail fraud is a Federal crime. Have no dealings
he's a flim flam man.
