My first impressions are often correct… but knowing I can be wrong I keep my mind open for changes in perspective. I find life more interesting that way.
It may be a simplified Hermes 2000, but it is one sweet machine. I like the logo on the right side (not sure what it is) but it looks cool. From what I’ve read when this was introduced in 1936 it lacked a back space key and ribbon selector (both added by 1939). Also on the 2000 in the rear was a knob for adjusting velocity.
If gold is at the end of a rainbow… what is at its beginning? Do dreams start where rainbows first grow? Rainbows fill the sky and lift our spirits and our hopes. They are good things.
Its a Royal Blue Aristocrat in cursive… so I go with the flow…
My Underwood-Olivetti Studio 44 is from 1966 so is the western movie “The Professionals”. Typed on one and watched the other. A great way to pass the time.
It’s great to have the ability to type and to express one’s view… all you need do is press some keys and words appear. And if the letters are put together in a nice way and in a good way then you can have “peace of mind”, “love in your heart” all kinds of thoughts that relax and engage. Just by putting letters together one at a time.
It’s neat to speak of my “Empire”… from 1907 a great looking machine. Has it’s flaws… but I like the thought of having my own little empire.
Some typewriter just bring out the wordplay in me.
I added a fourth sheet of paper to my Remington Standard (Noiseless) and it turned the output from okay to great. Made my day. Until I noticed all the letters transposed… can’t have everything!
When the rubber meets the road… of something like that? At 300 miles the Brooks Cambium feels like it did at 12. Which is good and bad in its way. Right out of the box it felt like a leather brooks after several hundred miles; the leather gets better the more miles you put in. So far the Rubber stays the same.
