On Dec. 14th, 2010 I had the opportunity to Present the Fountain Pen that I hand Crafted to the Prime Minister of Canada in is West Block Office. Prior to the Meeting I was the guest of the PM. For question Period, I had seats in the Speakers Gallery. After Question Period I was take by his gracious Special Assistant Allison Barrett to meet the PM. While I was there with the PM we were photographed by Jill Propp Special Assistant- Photography. He loved the Pen, it was crafted from Cocobolo with 24k Gold plating. I will be adding more but for now this will be all. A Very Special Thanks To Alli and Jill for making this happen! Thanks for Reading. Any comments are welcome.

Lovely Pen Mark, now the PM knows the citizens have the Write stuff – couldn’t resist that one.
I’ll bet he was very pleased to receive it.
