simplicity, typewriter, unplugging, why
I still have the first “real” typewriter I was ever given. I think my grandfather gave it to me when I was twelve, and I’d spend hours writing stories on it. It replaced a toy one I’d almost worn out.
My aunt did the bookkeeping for her husband’s carpentry business, and when she bought a new machine, she sold this one to my grandfather. It’s an Underwood Standard upright.
I used to have every typewriter I owned, until my husband begged me to clean out the “typewriter museum” that was clogging the cellar. I kept this one and polished it up, and now it has a place of honor here in my office.
