Look at this baby. A Remington Holiday. Isn't it adorable? Gorgeous blue. Makes me very happy every time I clap eyes on it. I'd been on the prowl for one for ages since seeing one here. And since finding one, it's taken a few additional weeks to source a ribbon, work out how to attach it and get it all working properly. But now there's no stopping us. My girl wants to be writer you see. And I figure every budding young author needs a portable typewriter. So that one day,when she's grown up, she can pop (I would say throw but it's far too precious for that) her Remington Holiday on the back seat of her car and head off to a secluded beach shack for some serious wordsmithing. Or perhaps he will...She loves it of course. We all do. It feels real somehow, enduring in a culture of throwaway keyboards. And terribly nostalgic. And it makes such an amazing sound::clickety clickety clickety ping!
