I've acquired a restoration project. The last riddle I posted was so much fun that I decided to do it again.
My name is Brett. I am a dainty old lady. My favorite country is Spain.
We'll see how many of you get close on this one ;)
Now, a question for my readers. You might recall all of the plans I mentioned when I was posting about my Royal Deluxe. I called a state representative to ask her if she would get the machine and bring it back to me. I've driven an hour and a half one way to get my SM3 and Lettera 32. I've looked under every table in an antique store just in case someone hid a portable machine there (that's how I got my first QDL).
So, what is the absolute craziest thing you've ever done to get a typewriter? Maybe it was a deal you couldn't refuse. Maybe it was a rare model you'd been hunting for forever. Maybe it was a piece about to meet its doom in the trash or at the hands of a key chopper.
Post them here, or send a link to your own blog.
Power to the pen!
