Traveling Typewriters

Today I took a few typewriters over to another house we have nearby (referred to as BRAVO – the main house as you might guess is ALPHA).  I decided to place a Smith-Corona Silent inside the typing desk.  I also took over the 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe and my 1946 Smith-Corona Clipper.  I’ll be bouncing back and forth between the two houses over the next several weeks.  Just hate the thought of being without a typewriter.

Now I’m choosing which machines will accompany me on an upcoming writing retreat.  ~TH~

Yes, I Like Typewriters

Yes, I like typewriters.  Recently I have backed off of my own use of the words ‘love’ and ‘hate’ in regard to experiences, devices and people.  Unless I truly do hate… or love them.  After all, I don’t hate certain politicians who occasionally sit in the oval office.  Suffice it to say, they may not be my ‘cup of tea’.

This short narrative however, brings home why I love typewriters.  Oops!
