After typing 50 letters using my typewriters… my fingers seek out the Underwood’s. Not that other machines don’t do a great job… the touch wants what the touch want!
After typing 5 letters in a row with my 1956 Remington Travel-Riter, the ribbon started to snag… I switched to my 1962 Royal Futura and it’s able to handle a dozen pages in a row without issue… keeps asking for more paper!
After mailing off 115 letters to members of congress using my computer… I’ve gotten back 1 meaningful response. As a result I will switch to using my typewriter in the hopes that a “pitch” of civil interactions and debate will have more impact when the words were typed by a real human hand… (plus using a typewriter is more fun)!
I was watching the movie “Our Brand is Crisis” which is about American Political consultants who go throughout the world to win elections. The only thing that means anything is to win… The movie is fiction… but so much sounds true!!
In the spirt of the day… I thank everyone for being who you all and I hope and wish bright hopes and peaceful dreams and all the joy you can obtain.
I saw this for $32.00… guess no one saw what I did. It’s a neat typewriter to own… even if its not the greatest of typewriters.
It’s been over 40 years when my job sat me behind a computer terminal… 30 years since I bought my first PC… I use a computer everyday… but for fun I use a typewriter!
Anything for a buck… how about be nice to one another!
I typed my views then checked my facts. I discovered the number in the house since 1911 is 435 not 235… My intent remains true even when the facts are wrong. Perhaps its part of being human what we mean and intend outweighs what the facts convey… What the heart means is worth more than simple facts or figures! Just a reminder that people may say things wrong but be right in intent…
The fingers want a Underwood… makes zero sense… but its all about the touch!
