I have to show you the best birthday present:
My friend, Robin, who knows me so well, found it at a garage sale!!!
It brought back memories from typing class in high school.
I did not type on these typewriters, but not a whole lot had changed as I looked through the book!
Drills, standing up your typing book and flipping over the pages.
Trying to decipher all the things to be done on the document.
I still don't have the numbers down. I must have done o.k. with them in high school, otherwise I don't think I would have passed the class. No, I didn't cheat in typing. That was just sewing class.
"Now is the time for all good men to come to the aide of their country"?
I wasn't so spectacular at letter heads, either. But I was pretty fast!
Did anyone give you this advice:
I don't think my fingers listened very well in high school. I'm just happy for the delete/backspace buttons on my computer.
I'm pretty much packed and ready to go. If I have access to a computer in Italy, I'll send some pictures to the blog. Otherwise, I'll see you at the end of the month.
