Hobbled to the park to check on Bushtits
Left camera’s memory card plugged into computer
Returned to get it
Changed into lightweight shirt
How long does a sprain last
My aching foot wants to know
I swallow some medicine
To ease my paltry suffering
But still I revel in being alive
Considering the alternative
What have I to whine about?
And today on my shift:
Sears Chieftain – Smith Corona Skywriter
Royal Futura with new paint job
Does Sears still fix 50 year old typewriters?
Too late for Valentine’s Day, but this card was found in a nifty shop here. This place has typewriters for rent, and while I was buying this card the clerk was instructing a young woman on how a manual typewriter works. I found this amusing, and astounding, that one would need to be instructed on how to use such a simple and familiar machine. Conclusion: I obviously have no idea of how uncommon a manual typewriter is to some people. Perhaps this person would also be unfamiliar with a rotary dial telephone? Don’t laugh! I can’t milk a cow, can you?
every gnome’s got one
aristocrats presume to lead
is that world wide web-ster?
