Type, Hype, Skype, Ripe

vI was getting really tired of looking at the last blog post so I decided to post this picture of my typewriter. It's the prettiest one I've ever found so I won't mind if I have to go three more days before the next meaningful blog post. I hope you don't either.

Today (if you're reading this on Tuesday) is too much special for my little words to match so I am just going to sit back and enjoy the festivities and feel happy in my heart for the celebrations that are taking place.

Um, my father-in-law picked it up in Southern Missouri at a flea market. Keep your eyes peeled, I guess.

My family had one like this growing up. I remember attempting my first novel on it. :) Funny to think back to all of the pages of type. I used erasable type writing paper. We also had a Commodore 64 w/ a dot matrix printer, but my brothers kept that in their room.

The typewriter was like my modern day laptop, portable. Typewriter fonts are near and dear to my heart.
