Do you still have this?

I remember my high school English composition class. We didn’t have computers back then. Who has?:-)

While I was in the house the whole week last week, I finally took notice of this:

It’s an old typewriter, an antique one, that has been with the family for… I actually don’t know. LOL. Unfortunately, I don’t know it’s history. I just took it for granted that we had this ever since I needed a typewriter for my composition class and my different projects back then. We had a more modern one, of course. Ever since the advent of computers, I don’t know where it has gone. But I loved using this one antique typewriter. Good thing, it is still with us to this day. It was never sold.

If there is anything I would like to ask from my parents when we will finally move back here in the Philippines, I would not hesitate to ask for this one. I just hope my father won’t beat me to this one. I hope my father, who takes it upon himself to continuously look for buried treasures and antiques, will continue to be oblivious to the value this antique typewriter holds.

  1. We have it also at home, ate Wendy. I remember the good old days of making term papers in HS. I wasted a ream of paper because the roll of tape smeared with the paper… hahaha! Dot-matrix printers were still very expensive on that time.
