Away Team Report

I went last night and made a typecast and a zine, and today went back for a zine that had looked interesting as well as to make a couple of buttons.

shoot - a typo.  That should read '87.  
I'll say that's an intentional mistake like master rug weavers incorporate into their work.
yeah, that's it...

Away team makes contact

They seem popular

I'm heading over after Jeopardy to take part.  Maybe I'd better bring another on my bike.

spy post

I wonder why they moved the backspace key to the right side.

Happy Independence Day!

Today i had a brainwave, and held my extra paper in with a magnet.  Great thing about the typewriter, a magnet won't corrupt your data.  I had another idea too, putting duct tape in four corners of the underside so it slides less on my bike rack.  That worked almost as well as the magnet.

Our particular friend is right rear on guitar.  They were playing big band music.  Love that stuff.

Today's find.  Okay, not the watch.  I'm just showing the new band on that.

It could be argued that I already owned the world's finest portable typewriter, depending on which faction one is in.  Lettera, Corona 3, Remington portable, Hermes Rocket, skyriter, underwood 18, K2, etc...
 I'll scan the inside soon.  It's a busy holiday weekend here, I have some bikecasting to do tomorrow.

I think i found the case to that sterling on the other side, with no handle.

What's the deal with the  missing teeth on this model?

Another interesting specimen I didn't mention in the typecast.

trying to get back in the habit

I'm behind on my posting.  For example I am long overdue on a spy-themed post.  Partly I'm busy, partly lazy.  When I have time, I've been trying to organize my area.  Then I find my books and suddenly I haven't any time.  I took the day off today to walk up a hill for a $5 gift card for a bakery.  That left a lot of time to attend to some promised tasks and get out a typecast.

Just leave me a comment if you want to read the book.  We'll connect somehow from that starting point.
