Use to be I just looked for the proper sized bicycle tire… now I sort through: road, touring, gravel, cruiser, training, mountain, performance, slick, urban and all sorts of tire types to decide what to ride on. One site listed a tire as “road” until it reached the width of 700 x 32 then it transformed into a gravel tire.
Everyone wins… you get on a bike any bike and ride… short or long… fast or slow. You win just by doing…
Sometimes you just need to let the words out. Not because they have great meaning or worth… just to let them fly or fall in the air of self-expression.
I set down to type my 911 post. When news events and the post number struck me. Then I went ahead and looked for grace…
Communication has speeded up but is that as much a change as moving from word of mouth to print? From horse to horseless? From showing respect to demanding it? Are questions the prelude to change or just wanderings allowing things to stay the same?
What is the meaning when you say you are of modest means? A car, a home? Take the bus and rent an apartment? Could afford college… night school?
The Ape (Gorilla) in question owns a 1908 Underwood 5 and types on it, which is all I needed to know to read this book. For younger readers (or young minds) well worth it.
With a serial number 9950063 it came at the end of the model year. In 1968 Laugh-In was on TV. 2001 a Space Odyssey was at the show. Apple records was started and Yale started to admit women.
PS: This is a 49 year old typewriter, not 39. I must not like thinking about the years adding up the way they do. I was 12 in 1968, adding 49 years… makes me 39…
March 31, 2012 I posted for the first time. 892 posts later I continue.
This 1908 Underwood, had a odd looking lever. Turned out to be a backspacer. Which is why several years ago I had to have it.
