  1. Great photography! (Also of the Swissa in the previous post.)

    This has been my lament for pretty much a whole year – picking up fewer thrift store/ flea market finds and focusing on using the ones I do have. Still, I felt an itch for something new that would encourage me to use typewriters more, and I thought it was just that I didn’t have the *perfect* typewriter yet. Now I realize it was just a matter of finding the perfect writing space! Can you tell I’m smitten with my new desk? It has cured me of typewriter purchases by encouraging me to use the ones I do have, now that I have a shiny stable flat surface to put them on.

    I look forward to seeing how all our blogs are going to tackle topics other than “latest acquisition”. I actually have a few of those posts in the pipeline; but I’m trying to space them out so it forces me to write about other things. Flea market visits (although I’m cutting back on those given a recent dry spell, if you can believe it), typewriter photography, travels here and there, and miscellaneous illustrated essays. Should be fun!

    1. I can tell! It’s a wonderful desk, and will be an excellent partner in your writing life (:

  2. And just when posting about acquisitions is going out of style, I posted one this morning:)

    1. I wouldn’t say “out of style”, ‘cuz typewriter porn is never out of style!

  3. Why does this sort of thing seem to suddenly happen at the same time? Three people I’ve seen on their blogs or in letters I exchange are feeling the same way just now!

I've decided to set up some ground rules for comments, because some people just don't get common courtesy. Here's a reminder:

  1. This is a personal blog, not a free price estimating service. If your comment in any way asks me to slap a value on something so you can sell it on Ebay, well, it will be ruthlessly ignored and deleted from now on.
  2. I don't diagnose problems on things I can't see and touch and take apart. Since I can't see or touch or take apart your thing via a blog comment, I simply ignore requests to diagnose problems with your things.
  3. STAY ON TARGET! I know you're very excited to have found someone who knows something about your doo-dad, but if you post your question on one of my posts that has nothing at all to do with the subject you want to discuss, it will make The Jesus irritated, and *nobody* f*cks with The Jesus.
  4. Be Nice.
Well, that's about it for rules.
If you can live with that, then Welcome, and please join in. (:
