Dem Ol' Typewriter Blues: How I Feel This Morning

With thanks to BuzzFeed's
Give me a Groma Kolibri any day!
 And I mean it!
Don't worry, I'll keep an eye on the typewriters
while you're gone
Charlie, the Typewriter Guard Cat
What idiot moved that bloody Urania?

And something tells me that Elliot Electronic Computer has pretty much the same processing power as the Groma Kolibri... XD

Some computer error messages that should have been included in the operating systems from the beginning:

"Error 01: Replace user, press any key to continue"

"Error 02: User not accepted. Please replace."

"Error 999: Malfunctioning wetware."

Your typewriter guard cat looks really comfortable there!

Have a great day, Robert!

My typewriter collecting experience is too recent and my brain to small to do other than spin when confronted with the vast knowledge you "old timers" relate regarding the fascinating relationships and descendance of typewriter brands, designs, and models.

But I loved the pictures of Charlie, the guard cat.

Cheers down there,

These are all quite amusing!

I'm sad to say that Nancy shows absolutely no promise in guarding, sleeping or writing on a typewriter. She makes a pretty good laptop in the winter though.

Love the kitty.

Thanks for sharing all the great photos.

I love that first image. We are on vacation at the moment and I just did my first entries on the Letttera 22. My brain is slowly adjusting to the lack of spell check.
