Mont Blonc

Mont Blonc claims the tallest peak in the Western Alps. It’s on the border of France and Italy, for centuries they have fought over exactly whose it is. For now, France has it. My favorite pens are Mont Blanc, named for the mountain but manufactured in Germany. German actress, turned American, Marlene Dietrich was honored with a special edition Mont Blanc pen. The best of which runs $4,800. John Lennon was also honored with one. She came to America in 1939, just in time to ditch Germany. Sadly, Roosevelt was our president when she came here, but luckily it wasn’t Kennedy or Clinton.
