Badonkadonk, LOL!!  That took me a second to sort out, which made me feel... not young. 

I don't know if anyone can assess how Mr. Bickham would have felt about such acronyms, but I think he'd be pleased with your calligraphic progress! Looking good, Matt!

PS what nib and ink are you using here? And paper, for that matter.

Very nice! Calligraphy looks great!  ;D

Texting in the 80's was handwritten notes folded up in some origami square. I still have them!

Bianca, thank you for the nice compliment on my progress! I took your advice, I used a hunt 101, Sumi ink, and canson 50lb sketch tablet. That combination is the best I've found so far. Erica, I know the squares your talking about!
