my college typewriter

 This is the typewriter I used in college (class of '78). It belonged to one of my parents when they were in college. I thought it was so neat that I had whiteout available and erasable paper!
Today I was browsing thru a Victorian Trading Company catalog and found they are refurbishing these and selling them for....
$790.00!!!!!!!! Holey Smoley!

I used a not-quite-so-retro manual typewriter all through high school and college. Then I tried to type on a regular one not long ago and found I've become too spoiled by keyboards--I couldn't do it!

Yikes! My mother had one of those, too. I can remember being grateful for the erasable paper-- except when it got all smudgy. I guess I erased a lot.
Still do ;)
