Hannah has wanted a real typewriter for some time now. She says she wants to really use one. I expect her to change her mind once she actually tries to produce a paragraph with one. Remember correction tape? White Out? Making an uncorrectable mistake - at the bottom of an otherwise perfect page? Carbon copies? Yes, I'm that old. They still used punch cards for computers when I was in college, but I'll save that bit of technological reminiscing for another day.
I want a typewriter too. I want to use the keys to make jewelry.
But we found a really old one at our church garage sale that amazingly enough, still works. I can't bring myself to rip apart a working antique typewriter! How old do you think this thing is?
It has a working ribbon and even has the original cover! Since I can't bring myself to take it apart, I thought I would at least try to take some artsy fartsy photos of it. So here you go. And if you ever get a typed note from us (with lots of corrections) you'll know where it came from.
