Some things you just don’t notice… noiseless typewriters had a long life over 40 years of manufacture and for the most part I was unaware.  So many existed but I find them to be uncommon but common… so many but so few.  A contradiction perhaps… but it sparks my interest in them.

What if you felt that you could duplicate a master painting without any artistic training?  Would you spend 8 years in the effort?  Tim Jenison did and had it documented to show it was so.

This is something to see, behold and wonder about all at the same time.  I give it four stars… two thumbs up… and GEE if I had the time and money…

I had seen worse… own worse in fact.  I offered a price the seller thought was way low… but said if no one bid on it in seven days I could have it at my price.

The spools did not turn… I kept punching holes into the ribbon as I attempted to see what the problem was.  I  kept cutting off ruined ribbon… until the roll was almost done… then things began to creep and crawl and spin and turn and the next thing I knew I had a page of type … no more holes in the ribbon (what is left of it)… And the day ends with a smile!
