Pen it!

steampunk pens

Six pens

Six stories.

The six pens were neatly put together.

The auctioneer gave them one glance and thought:

“If these pens could each tell their own story. Each came from the same era. The same room. The same bottle of ink filled them up. Each one had a different hand to to sign the peace treaty. All six are bound together and should be sold  as one collection. I might start off with a $10 000.00!”

“Ladies and gentlemen, look at these pens. They are precious. They belong together. Each one has the name of a King or head of state engraved on it.

Let’s start with the bidding… $10 000, anyone? $11 000 I have……..”


It ended up and was bought by Sheik Ally for $100 000. Well done people and thank you.

      Dankie. Ek kan dit self ook nie glo waar ek aan die goed kom nie. Dit kom egter nie sommer vanself nie. As ek egter begin dink dan borrel dit sommer uit.
