Free to a Good Home

Hey folks,

Mike.Speegle here.

I know this newfangled blog wasn't meant as some sort of retromechanical Craig's, but this seemed like the best place to make an offer: I have, right now, a Remington Quiet-Riter that is not seeing any use. Rather than let such a beautiful machine languish in a corner, gathering dust, I will send it free to the first person who requests it. Just pay whatever shipping fees are involved.

Respond back here if you are interested.

I don't get paid until Friday, but if the costs aren't too much I'd be glad to take her off your hands! In fact, I can even send you a UPS label all pre-paid (I get a discount through work) if you let me know the weight after you pack it up.

Hope I'm the first one to contact you! I've always wanted a Quiet-Writer...I only have one Remington in my collection and she's lonely. All the Smith Coronas are ganging up on her and I fear for her well being. A little muscle would no doubt put her at ease. ;u)

Let me know!

Done and done! I will have the wife pack her up in the next couple days, and then I'll hit you up with the weight! -M

Beautiful photography work there, Mike! The color and composition of the ferns is quite elegant.

Ah well, I cannot take credit for it. My wife, Gen, is the photographer of the family. I am simply her humble student.

That is a great picture - kudos to the wife!

Can't wait to get my grubby little, I mean...loving gentle hands on that machine! ;u)

My email address is bob (at) wordrebel (dot) com . (But I think you at least sort of knew that already!)

Ugh! I was too slow! This is what happens when I get off blogger for one day; missing out on a nice typewriter!

They're great, solid machines. I recommend everyone try/buy one.
