There is nothing better than running into a old friend… good memories rush in and smiles slip in. Even a 43 years old typewriter…
I got my bicycle back today… one of the things I had done was to change the gearing from a today’s typical 50/34T to a 40/36T which was something common in the 60’s. What use to be touring… is now considered Adventure… wait long enough and what was becomes the new thing (like typewriters)…
There are still great wonderful values out there. Full size, working; even a useable ribbon and only $7.99… At a higher price I would have skipped this model; but now I say it’s a quality machine.
Thanks to the wonderful/in-depth information provided by Mr. Ed Neuert (Editor Etcetera) I have learned a great deal about my Corona 3. He was even kind enough to add it to the comment section of my last post (thank you). Ed requested more images… so I have add more below.
Every day is free… and a beautiful day costs as much as a cold or hot one. What makes a day special any day of the week is what you do with it. Same is true with a typewriter… if you use it or just look at it; it’s value is within you and that is all that truly matters.
I decide to do something nice… and I am blessed instantly… I find what I had forgot 20 years ago
Went bowling… the facility tracks the speed of your bowling ball (guess I spent my years at older alley’s)… I found myself watching the speed results more than the score. Instead of being concerned about the lane conditions and placement of the ball; I kept thinking (can I get it up to 20!)… then I threw my arm out. I can see how this added information can be helpful… I just bowled for 50 years without knowing it. The screen animations also showed suggested placements of the ball to pick-up spares… and people seem to be bringing more balls to select from. I recall when I moved up to two (dry lanes/wet lane) and considered a ball just for spares (which would bring my total up to four) and stopped… having a great score every game just did not mean that much to me… I decided I could be happy with my two balls.
Now that my annual adventure is over…. must return to the normal…
