Retail Therapy – And How To Avoid It
I wrote three years ago, about driving almost two hours – one hour of it in some of Canada’s worst traffic – and the two-hour, mirror, return trip, to obtain a vintage IBM Selectric, golf-ball typewriter. It did not work.
The wife was going to contact a repair shop in Hamilton, which claimed that they could repair it. We bought a metal typing table for it, at an office-goods recycling shop.
We did not contact the repair shop.
The typing table takes up a bit of the rapidly dwindling free space in the garage.
I put it on a craft table, between two storage bins, by the window in the computer room.
The cats love it. They use it as a stepping stone to bask in the sunlight.
I own a vintage paper weight.
Anybody want it?? Free to a good home. “Good” defined as one that will take it.
