I found this cute Underwood typewriter the other day in an antique store. I just couldn't go home without it! I realized that if you are under 30 typewriters are old relics. You haven't lived until you have re-typed an entire paper 3 times in college!! Remember that white tape stuff that was powdery on one side and you had to backspace perfectly to fix a mistake. Do I sound a hundred? I Skyped my parents to show them and my dad said that he had to use a typewriter like this one to intercept and translate Morse Code in the Air Force! Cool. Every teenager or kid that walks by tries it out. No it doesn't have tape but just making it Ding! is fun. Kids don't know about the Ding! either. so sad. The cigar box was my Grandpa Dee's, I love the smell of cigars, it reminds me of riding in his truck out to the farm when I was little.
