Typospherically speaking...I'm Back
My plan was to pick up from where I left off after leaving Kalamazoo earlier this year, but with the hectic pace of everything I have not had time to get the images ready or even type the typecasts. Moving this time was the biggest challenge I ever faced in moving. We hit obstacles every step of the way. It is the first time I moved so much stuff such a long distance myself I'm still working at the unpacking.
Oh, we hired a moving company, but that is another long post. Somehow all the short moves right after college were nothing. Back then all my things fit into the back of a pickup truck with room to spare. Now my electronics would not all fit. Add to that my photography gear and typewriters and I have more than a van could hold. Worst part is I had to leave my Omega D2 behind with all the lenses, carriers, and both condesers :( Good part; now I have a reason to get a full blown D5 system!
There is a lot more to post, including images, fountain pen friendly pocket notebooks, a report on our travels, a new digital image maker, some digital detox as well as digital overload, and even a type-in.
And, finally, for the Underwood Master Champion. It is my Underwood Master with the Champion keyboard. Like my ss it is a fantastic typer. I'd put these 2 Underwoods up against any typewriter - manual or electric - for good feel, action, and accuracy of loading paper straight first time - every time. (even before the JJ Short platens were installed)
