On my bikes… I think and then I ride some more.
The miles are starting to add up… 300 for the month and 800 for the year. I will be ready for Iowa in July.
There is so much about the world I do not understand. Lots of things people do and say is beyond my ability to accept… but with time perhaps understanding and acceptance will come. We just need to give others more time… not take away a life-time… there is no chance of change in that.
Three decades after he lost his voice… lost his natural grace… needed help to feed himself… he still was able to project grace and strength. An entire life lived determines greatness… not a short time in a ring!
There was nothing in the box but the typewriter… not a single bit of cushioning. About a foot of empty space… but it arrived without damage. They really built this to last. Since it sold for $21.00… I assume the shipper did not value it…
Put in a easy 20 today… on the same bike last week 15 miles seemed a strain.
There are still great wonderful values out there. Full size, working; even a useable ribbon and only $7.99… At a higher price I would have skipped this model; but now I say it’s a quality machine.
I could not resist this beauty. It was so nice looking I had fears… which turned out to be true… the frame had broken in the interior that prevented proper placement of the platen but after some effort I got some impressions… not to mention great joy and internal smiles!
Woke up this morning laughing… even if the dream was not that funny. So I decided to just fill the day in a mellow mood… setting a tone as they say.
Power went out… got out my manual typewriter and just typed some thoughts!
