My grandfather still owns a typewriter, but his slightly younger brother has recently updated to a computer. Do you still own a typewriter? If so, do you use it or does it only gather dust?

Unfortunately not, but I'm eyeing one that's being sold at our local Goodwill for $50 (the joy of being on a student budget)!
They are great, but sadly I got rid of my two.
Takes a lot of work to type :)
I went to a wedding where people had to type a little message, and a lot of young people had no idea!.....That was too funny.

So they saw all of us older ones doing really well, and knowing how to move it.
That, put a huge smile on my face....see we do know things they don't LOL.
No, we don't have a typewriter, but I know people who do. I don't think they use it though.
No I don't but found one at the op shop I manage and not quite sure what to do with it -so Vee if you wanna come to Perth, you can pick it up!

I cannot see why anyone would still use one of these and I think they go to collectors nowadays.

We've never had a typewriter, but I've always wanted one!
Sold it when computer bought. It was an excellent electric one.
My father died in May '77, & I have his little old 1, but I've never used it, & it's just sitting in the spare room....somewhere. I think it has something wrong with 1 of the keys. I can't remember when he last used it, maybe in the '60's, as I don't think he took it to Paris, France when he lived there, for most of '68, & then from most of the time between '70-'76.
