Some typewriters inspire and this one just keeps putting words on the page that float and flutter and pass through my fingertips with ease and grace on the winds of thought and the gentle breeze of kind thoughts and soft gusts of pleasure… Like the Monarch Butterfly this typewriter is full of easy grace and form and easy on the eyes.
Two years ago I bought an Oliver (Bat Ear) typewriter and it was a major disaster in my collecting career. Paid to much for a hunk of rust. I obtained parts, bought a manual and watched You-Tube video’s regarding repair. Then one very hot day… I had the carriage removed wanted to put it back on and like a square peg; made things worse than when I started. So I said never again. Then this one came my way… works sort of… I used my Everest to post (fitting).
I call my light to the touch typewriters eagles and this Remington Rand Torpedo is flight-tastic.
I recalled this movie well… or thought I did. Saw it today… the stars seemed so young that I thought it was a different movie. When did 1984 become 30 years ago?
Man pays $25.00 for two paintings in 1975… son finds out in 2014 they are worth $50,000,000.00. Does the worth change its value? The paintings remain the same regardless.
I begin yet another year full of wonder and hope and joy…
