Eight and a Half Miles and a Typewriter

What does that particular distance have to do with a typewriter? Absolutely nothing. Well, other than the fact that both will be discussed in this post, but other than that...absolutely nothing. Just say'n.

StART on the Street, Worcester, MA


You see, yesterday was one of my favorite local events, StART on the Street, here in Worcester. Lots of local artists set up booths and show off and sell their fantastic art! I LOVE IT!!! It's like a whole bunch of people who 'get' me come together to enjoy this fabulous day...and some yummy food. Granted, I don't know most of them, but the point remains, that one always feels comfortable surrounded by those with a like mind. And sharing a hotdog, HUGE basket o' french fries and Steak on a Stick with ones Hubbums, certainly makes it a perfect day! And the best part ... we WALKED there and back! It was great! Between the walk there, the walking WHILE there, the brief walk through the park, and the walk back, we put in 8 and half miles of good walking! It felt SO good, but my feet are KILLING ME! HA! It was great to be outside on such a beautiful fall day, too! Just gorgeous!

And now for the typewriters...100 Proof Press typewriter, of course!

hi


*sigh* I do so love typewriters. They are just happy little creatures. This particular typewriter is the Underwood Typewriter image from 100 Proof Press. (#2585-R) Go ahead....go check it out...I'll wait...

hi (detail)


SO...all in all, a fantastic weekend here in the Ingle-wood. Hood? I don't know....but it was good. Just say'n.

ETA: HA!!! I just read that and cracked up when I saw that 'good' rhymed with the wood and the hood...Ohhh, dear. It's Monday, isn't it? HAHAHA!!!

Jingle Out.

OH! And I'm totally linking my card up to Less is More Anything Goes challenge! YAY!

  17. I love anything typewriter related! It brings back memories. :) Your card is fabulous. If I had walked 8.5 miles in a day, I think I'd be spending the next week in bed. I'm such a pansy! P.S. Do you really pronounce the name of that town "Wooster"?

  24. This card rulz! I love it!!! Yes typewriters are rockin' little creatures - especially the old school ones. Super cute. I saw a bracelet made of old typewriter keys a couple of weeks ago. Pretty cool. Not for $500 though. Nice to look at! :D
