Typing, is fun again

I have a typewriter, from my father, he bought it I think 50 years ago, for him to type stuff.  I am not sure what he used it for, but I remember using the typewriter for my resume, applying a short term work with Kerry’s Supermarket, and later applying a job with a webpage design company.

I also used the typewriter to complete the school project, mainly the English and Bahasa Malaysia ones, which required some neat work, instead of hand writing.  Not that my hand writing is any bad.

So Retna told me to bring it to our weekend home, which we will place it there as a decor item.

Guess what, the twins and daughter do not think this piece of history is a decor item, but an adventure.  They went on to type without ink ribbon (many years of not using it, already deadly dried), and on A4 sheet of paper.  They tried to type like typing on a computer, which they had really hard time to do so.  Anyway, we then had a tutorial of typewriter, based on my understanding.

After the tutorial, they took turn to type.

Good enthusiasm these kids have.

Should encourage them more.
