As of now, I have posted 100 times on this blog! Dude. I can hardly believe it. AND I can hardly believe I have 60 followers! This January, I had exactly five followers. One was me. And one was my mom.
When New Years rolled around, I was going to put "Get ten followers" on my New Years resolution list. But then I thought that it would never happen, so I left it out. :)
Thank you for following! You helped blow my wish out of the water!
Anyways, this week I went garage sale-ing with my sis in law. And I found this beauty for $10.
Can you guess what's inside??
A 1930's Remington typewriter! The man said it belonged to his grandmother.
At first when I tried typing with it, the keys got stuck half way to the paper. I was pretty sure there was a button that would 'unlock' it. And my sis in law found it! When you slide the button, it lifts the keys up. Sweet, huh?
Close ups of the sliding magic button:
I do so love typewriters. :)
Oh, did I mention that it works? As in, it still has ink on the ribbon and everything! Win!
The sticker says, "To save time is to lengthen life." :)
I love history. Not necessarily the history book kind (which I do like sometimes), but more the daily life of people long ago. The music people listened to, their hair styles and clothes, the machines they used ... life.
It's so strange to think how different life was just a few years ago!
Have you ever used a typewriter?
