Another Typewriter Repair Store

I never get tired of reading these articles. Here's one from The Record titled Typewriter shop keeps aging relics clicking. It seems rather common that most of the typewriter businesses added a computer and printer sales and service side.

I had a laugh when McLemore described a typewriter to someone who didn't know what one was. I've actually described is similarly to kids, minus the bit about the memory.

It's funny, this other recent article also uses the title "...Keeps Relics Clicking."

We love our relics!

This is great. One day I need to make a trip to Jacksonville to the closest shop to me. Then, Stockton is not too far from my daughter so that gives me an excuse to make a trip for their 100 year celebration (maybe).

It is interesting how ever one of these articles, representing a typewriter store is saying...
"One of the last typewriter stores..." but there are more then 4 dozen articles all related to DIFFERENT typewriter stores. If you go to google maps, and type in typewriter...you get so many pointers.

I get frustrated often behind my typewriter when i make a mistake...but i blame myself, not the typewriter.
