Words have always interested me and I would read the dictionary as a small child. I saved my pocket money to buy an Olivetti typewriter. It's portability attracted its purchase but I don't ever remember taking it anywhere.
The ribbon had dual red and black, it could underline and make capitals. How I loved that versatile little machine.
When I got married my husband owned an Imperial machine with a golf ball. This apparently was an amazing machine with a golf ball. I have always regretted selling my wee work horse but yesterday on my birthday my son gave me an Olivetti just like my old one.
