It was a dark and stormy night.

Chris came home with this Remington typewriter.    He paid $5.
I "think" it weighs more than Josie's 42 pounds.

I've got big plans for this heavy duty typewriter at Halloween.

I learned how to type on a very similar typewriter! I recently found it it, I mut check if it is a Remington. Can't wait to see how you incorporate it, perhaps a little Edgar Allen Poe?

Love those old typewriters!! When Maddy saw one, she asked -- "where's the delete key?" HA HA!
