Just My Type


You are elegant and refined...
a throwback to a more genteel era...



 You are worldly and well spoken,
a scintillating conversationalist, you are...



 Your wisdom has given you, undoubtedly,
the key to what is really important...



You are, in a word,
just my type!




Happy Wednesday!

So clever and sweet---this ode to the old typewriter! I would love to have one of these, but then again, it would most likely be gathering dust since we live on a gravel road where dust is a real issue. I have to choose my decor wisely.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!!

Love old typewriters. These are so cool!

I have my mom's typewriter, bought in 1960 (and because Mom saved everything, I even have the original sales receipt).

I do believe if I had an IBM Selectric, I could really write up a storm!
The old manuals are gorgeous, but it takes hands of steel to type on 'em!

Hey, Anne! Would you believe that is what I learned to type on? I was the fastest typist in my class~;>) It drove my teacher nuts because I was NOT her pet. I was the class clown..go figure~ xo Diana

Hi Anne, How your post tonight brought back so many memories. We still have an old typewriter sitting in the case in the closet. I learn to type on them a long time ago. Have a wonderful day. Your Missouri Friend.

Back in 1973 I spent part of my summer vacation teaching myself to type on this kind of typewriter. When I finally was able to use an electric typewriter I had to ease up on how hard I pressed the keys. Can't imagine using one of these now but I sure do love them.

At last count we have six vintage typewriters picked up at garage sales and only one was well over the usual $5 or $10 we pay. Love them

Oh goodness, we have an old one from Joels family - it's on my desk - I just love it. A computer keyboard just doesn't have that wonderful, intense sound!

Love your toolbox centerpiece! I have a big one with al my favorite magazines next to our piano. I'd take ten of 'em!
Have a lovely weekend my dear!
Love,

Did you know why the letters on a typewriter are not arranged so that the ones you use most are on your strongest fingers?Apparently they were originally done that way but as the first typers became really good at it they continually caused the machine to jam up.(as I write this I can hear and feel this very thing happening just as I am sure those of you who are old enough to have used one can identify)The only solution was to make typing harder by putting much used letters like "A" on a weak finger to slow the girls down. Once electric typewriters were invented that could keep up it was to late to change back.
Who could ever have known that the whole world would someday be typing like mad on their computers.
Just a little piece of trivia.
Love your blog.
