I’ve yet to get a “stinky” typewriter. Or perhaps I just enjoy the smell of old machine oil. I dunno.
Nice typewriter. I have always liked the typeface on the Underwoods.
I too have a bit of (really more than a bit of) distain for pro sports and racing. I won’t go into my usual tirade though. Now a naked bike ride.
That would be interesting until some one commercialized it.
We used to have a canoe race near my home town. It ran for years as just a fun time and it kept growing. It got to be a big all day fun event until someone (I will not mention the group) took over, wanted it organized instead of fun, and ruined it.
Nice use of the “pound” key! I was listening to the Swing Years last night too while gaming. Have been a fan since the 80’s. I still miss Cynthia Doyon.
I miss her too. She turned me on to Django Reinhardt one night many years ago and it changed my life. I still have a cassette tape I made that night with her voice introducing these songs that were like a revelation to me. From that day on I started collecting Django CD’s and started on the road to learning how to play that music. Thus I came to building my guitars too, so it was a fateful day when she did a segment devoted to Django and the QHCF!
