    Thursday #650. Happy type-writer Day!

    I was piddling about and came across this tidbit.

    On this day in the 1800's, a patent for a type- writer was given out.



    I think we need some drinks, I have been distracted lately and need to focus on the job at hand. Running the bar and keeping the ORC in line.

    I am drinking a tequila gimlet and eating some 7 layer dip......

    Done?

    Done!

    I'll have a margarita please.

    My first typewriter experience was in grade 8, the typewriter had unmarked keys. Our first task was to type our name. Virtually impossible, but within the week was typing 20 words per minute!

    I took typing in summer school one year, as I thought it would be a useful skill. But the teacher would assign a page each day to practice, and leave the room. First day I made a Christmas tree from asterisks and zeroes for decorations, the next day made a couple other designs/pictures, then gave it up as a lost cause. To this day I type almost everything with my right middle finger. Left middle finger assists with shift and sometimes a and s.

    Alphabet soup, anyone?
