Dinner With the Typeanati

I met Ted Munk, the lovely Tori Forte, and Peter Baker for dinner tonight. Wonderful people who share the love of vintage typewriters. The icing on the cake - Ted brought along a few of his portables and we did an impromptu type-in!

Most of my typing was blathering about how this one felt or that one looks. But one entry jumped off the page and grabbed me by the throat when I got home.

 (Typed on Ted's 1933 Remie Scout)

As evidenced by this entry alone, a good time was had by all. I look forward to many more such evenings.

    1. It was a beautifully balanced ale. I think I should have stopped at one, though!
