Clickety-Clack

Addy is fascinated with typewriters. One of her first requests when she arrived was would we pleeeeeeeease get Pop's old typewriter down so she could try it out.

It took a bit of finding - this thing probably hasn't seen the light of day since Pop graduated from the Academy 1975-ish - but he hauled it down for her. Pop never could resist a little girl batting her eyes and saying 'please'.
And it turned out to be the hit of the weekend - all three girls were enchanted. The look on Leanne's face when I showed her how to use the shift-key for capital letters was priceless!

I was amazed that the typewriter - and the ribbon - still worked. Pop has had this relic since at least high school, making it a verified antique. He wanted to get rid of it years ago but I wouldn't let him. I knew it would be worth something someday.
And that worth showed up this weekend in the faces of the grand-girls.
