A place to discuss floaty pens

Mathew Street Miracle

While in Liverpool recently I went to Mathew Street where The Beatles were "discovered" playing the Cavern. Most of the original Cavern was torn down, but it has been rebuilt next door.

I went to a Beatles souvenir shop to check out whether they warrant a floaty pen.

Indeed -- among all the commercial rubbish, was a box of Abbey Road floaty pens. I told the man in the shop that I collect floaties and that I have a blog about them.

He laughed and laughed, evidently thought it was insane, but he gave me a discount on the pens! I got them for 2.50 instead of 3 pounds.

Unfortunately, I had already found an Abbey Road pen at Windsor Castle.
