In keeping with my birthday week.....
I dug out my old, old typewriter a few weeks ago....
Nathalie had encouraged me to do so as she has one that she uses in her artwork.
So I got it out of the attic....
I need a spring repair on the left side as the ribbon no longer advances...
or maybe the spring has just come loose... need to spend some time taking it apart.
I got this for my 16th birthday from a dear aunt
who said she would send me anything I wanted for my 16th birthday.
Well...this was what I wanted.
and began to inspect to see what it's problem was,
I realized how much I really know about this little machine -
I used to disassemble it and put it back together with no problem.
I still do that..... my friends all call me with their computer problems
because I have that no-fear attitude about my computer -
which I derived once upon a time
from my little portable typewriter!
that I was somewhat reluctant
to upload these typewriter pictures
to my blog because
my good friend Carole
had this on her blog
on Mother's Day
