When is the last time you used a typewriter?


Depending on how young you are, I suppose there may be some who have never used one. The last time for me was the year 2000. at the time I thought the new software programs were the greatest thing. They are very convenient, but I have begun to miss the sounds and the feel of the old typewriter!

    I know what you mean by, how hard you hot the keys. I remember realizing that I was getting too tired to continue because my letters were not standing put like they normally would.

    I'm sure in the not to far future, even our modern keyboards will be considered outdated.

    I probably trashed mine without a thought. Now I wish I would have kept it.

    Yes, Spellcheck is a blessing for people like me with happy fingers. It's not that I don't know how to spell, but I hit wrong keys without realizing it.

    You could probably find one at an antique shop, or the flea market.
