Click click click goes the typewriter
When I was a little girl my mom had the most beautiful typewriter. It is was a turquoisey-blue color. Just like the one here on flickr. I had fun typing little stories using both the black and red ink. Winding the ribbon and getting ink on my fingers.
In high school I took two years of "typing"...and it was on both manual and electric typewriters. It makes me feel SO OLD to think that they still had MANUAL typewriters when I was in high school! Of course all this learning to type was intended for use on typewriters,. Boy did I luck out that I can use those skills I learned on that old dinosaur for my computer now! I can type like the wind thanks to all those "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" exercises.
My little typing girl is currently up for grabs on ebay.
