A Kind of Madness
As near as I can tell, this is a 1958-ish Underwood Golden Touch Jewell, a beautiful machine that arrived today. Damn near flawless and beautiful, save for a bell that doesn't always catch. Very clean, and well worth the $10 (plus shipping) it cost me. I had sworn off buying more typewriters, you know. But then I bought this one, and another one, and have a bid on yet another that ends in a few hours. Also, my mom's boyfriend died recently and I inherited a Smith-Corona electric from him. I don't even know what my total is now. 41? 42? Somewhere in there. Most of my machines remain in storage, but my intention is to free them by the first of February and get back to doing this blog on a more regular basis. I also have several stories in the works and hope to have something new on Amazon in a few days. I'll be in touch, because it looks like a big week ahead.
