Assuming you might want both pendrives to mount at the same moutpoint,
you can do:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/pendrive auto noatime,noauto,user,owner,rw 0 0

You're off your meds again? :-)
For various services like Samba, which will autmoagically reread it's
config file every x seconds IIRC, I can see that happening; that's why I
always start/stop the service after changing the config.
But something like mount? I find that a little hard to believe since
mount starts and stops; it's not a conituing process like Samba.
