Default Presenting you my new typewriter!

You know I am a person who has trouble writing since this place grabs my attention when I'm on the computer So I decided to bring my old grandfather's typewriter: an Olivetti Lettera 32.

Took me some time to know how to write on it and will have to put some new ink, but apart from that it works perfectly -and noisily.

Gotta love the clickity-click.

That is a lean, mean, typing machine!! Almost as good as the IBM Selectra (?) that I learned to type on.

YEP .. pretty much the kind I learned to touch type (that's an archaic word now replaced by Keyboarding, for those of you too young to remember), way back in high school 30 years ago! Fortunately it was a transferable skill when it came time to learn to use a computer~

Well, my grandfather is "up there" (Mune will kill me for using euphemisms) and the machine was left somewhere in the garage; my grandma knew how I loved to write and wanted a typewriter, so...

5 days later, I've got it in my room.

I'm SOOO happy that I never had to deal with typewriters! Computers were taking hold during my youth.

I like it Zenit. I haven't typed on a type writer in a long time. I'm sure you will enjoy it a lot.
