From Russia, With Luck

IMG_2035

No kidding, this is a mint condition Olympia Progress, Russian. Unfortunately I don’t type Russian, nor do I speak it, or understand it. But I will sell it to the Russians for a tidy sum, since they are now wisely going back to typing classified documents. That is about the only good thing that can be said about Russia these days. Who would have thought that Russia is part of the typewriter insurgency!

Hey Vlad, want to buy my typewriter? For you, hmmm, $1000, cash only please.

What can this mean? A secret message? Cryptic!

Heavily redacted secret message, obviously in code as well. Proof positive that they are using typewriters for their secret business!

The Bridge rises

Literally

The huge counterweight

Hangs overhead

But not for long

This bridge is doomed

Little brother to the Golden Gate

Writ by the same engineers

Written off now

Other engineers think

Too expensive to fix

The mighty drill rig

Penetrates the bedrock

Laying the footings

A new bridge will stand on
