It sounds like you have had an excellent holiday. Lovely pictures of the family & tribe!
I was pleasantly shocked to score TWO typewriters for Christmas. The first, which arrived a week ago, is an Olympia SF in script font. I’ve always wanted one of those and a fellow Typospherian surprised me mightily with this gift!
The second, that I received yesterday on Christmas Day, is an ancient Remington portable probably dating from the 1920s. It has that retractable type basket that raises up for use by a lever on the side.
Like your old Underwood, this Remington portable needs a LOT of work. I’ve never replaced a drawband before! The machine is also very dirty. But I’m thrilled with this gift nonetheless.
Best wishes for a happy & prosperous 2013!
Yeah, I really wanted a script Olympia SF as well, which I eventually found. It’s a great machine. What color is yours?
I scored a ’60s Royal on eBay which will be going to WordPlay.
