OK, call me crazy, but… I’m relearning my typing skills. The last typing lesson I had was back in high school in the latter part of the 19th century, around 1889 I believe. Yep, home position, here I come. To celebrate, I treated myself to a “new” typewriter.
Got this beauty on Ebay, a Royal Mercury from the mid 60’s. I changed the ribbon and it works like a dream. I missed the old ‘clack clack’ sounds, announcing to the world that yes, I’m actually writing.
I’m very pleased that folks still use paper. I really don’t want to start making my own paper…
Here’s a very cool website where you can see some old typewriters – and some not-so-old too. Enjoy. ~TH~
