Vintage {Love}

Had to put in the fire plug for Dad!
I do love typewriters... I really do + of course I love type, did you notice today's post is in Courier, in memory of the typewriter.
It does not happen often, actually, it never happens anymore, I always loved receiving mail typed on a lovely typewriter.  I love how the typos make it look like someone really typed it... not just a machine auto-correcting your spelling as you go.  I love how once you think something and type those keys it is on the page for all to see. I remember all the government forms I had to do over my career that had errors on them, yes me with errors! You can't edit once you have written - you can only go back and xxxxxx over the words you do not want, leaving obvious scars on your work. Then there was "white out" "yellow out" and even "pink out" for all the carbon sheets. Wow, what a trip down memory lane. I do love typewriters still.
How about you? If you still use one please send us a letter, we love
seeing XXXXX's and you could even add some OOOOO's. Tail wags + Happy Valentine's Day to all.

What a fun post!! I actually still have an electric typewriter in my closet (that works)from college, and also my Mom's old manual that still has a pretty good ribbon on it. But I used to be a purchasing secretary, typing purchase orders with 6 carbons--I could work magic with an exacto knife to correct my mistakes--Good times and memories!! :-)
