Typecast From Planet 9

The first dafodil bloom in the garden this spring

I'm typecasting on my 1935 olive Corona Standard this week.

P.S.  Sorry about the sloppy typecast this week, my head really is in outer space.

Here We Go Again!

This Galaxie 12 is off to PA


A writer bonding with his machine.

Want to save $51 ?  You have to spent $49.  Huh?

For a cup of coffee, you can take this No.5 home.

I'm not sure I can swing a dollar a week.
