Moneypenny, '48 Royal QDL in her outdoor spot
Indoors, she often sat, waiting for an idea to strike - ready to go!
For periods of time, they lived in their cases, piled with stuff I meant to get to. They were tools to me then, not collectables.
Genuine Potato Vodka, the official beverage of The Monastery.
Mmmm, tasty! I do miss the tile countertops in that old shack.
I absolutely do not remember what happened to this old Tiffany typing table. I wish I still had it.
It was the kind that had the lever-actuated wheels so you could either lock it still on the rubber feet or lever down the casters and wheel it around.
In those days, Little Jake was just for display. horrible, flat, shrunken rubber made it impossible to type on.
An IBM Selectric II that didn't stay in the collection long. I hated the sound the motor made when it ran.
A double rainbow at The Monastery
This one's for Cameron who loves bright southwest colors.
The best thing about typing outside at The Monastery? Eight fruit-bearing citrus trees including Tangelo, Blood Orange, Navel Orange, Tangerine and a "Cocktail" citrus tree that grew both lemons and limes. No shortage of garnishes for the vodka!
