It took a long time before I realized how important it is to consider that in WWII: Landing strips are needed, places for troop ships to dock were required, hospitals to take care of the wounded had to be built, roads to transport… etc. This took great effort, in harsh conditions and is often overlooked. These are things my father did… when I looked up images I found the award ceremony for the Distinguished Unit Badge (AKA Presidential Unit Citation) and it took time for me to understand that such awards happen long after the fact… which explained why the uncropped picture was a empty field with a handful of people. Better late than never they say: So I salute all who did their part… Thank you!
When a typewriter reaches 100 plus years… the fact that it was a barebones (cheap) typewriter from day one. You must give it credit for a job well done. Types well… even if the feel is low end.

Before I became mature… I looked at the world in fresh and open ways. I think forgetting how old my head is… my eyes will see as they once did. After all they still work the same… the only difference is the interpretation’s my brain brings to the views.
Saw a Curlew this weekend… back in 2008 they were endangered; they have made a comeback.
What is a little loud sounds among friends. Fun for a day. Useful forever.
I like this typewriter. Not fancy… bare bones… After 10 months of ownership I love it!
I was about to turn off the TV and go to bed when that zither sound hit me… the 3rd man movie was being shown on TV. I was hooked by that sound. The look of the film and darn it every time I wanted to head off to sleep the zither called…
It works… it types… after 97 years one must accept the fact it was well made.
