I never knew my older siblings used fountain pens!
My sister Tereza is just seven years older than me and sent out this morning this interesting post about the school supplies she and my other older siblings remember so well. I do remember some of them, like the wooden pencil holders, and we did own both a mimeograph and that portable typewriter, but I never knew they were still using fountain pens in school! Also, many of our friends' families had the Barsa Brazilian encyclopedia, but my dad had a complete Britannica, and did I spend hours reading that... and learning more English in the process!
