for the love
two containers of pencils
just guess which one i adore

for the love of old
 loving vintage typewriter
ribbons hard to find
sooo - using everyday
wireless keyboard

I love old things, ones that were made
to last, and have lasted. I love them
because they bring me closer to the past
from which I grew, and to those who
made and used them. I love them
because I admire ingenuity, skill, and
design, and because I feel that it is right
to cherish that which has been cherished
by those who came before me.
"For the Love of Old"

my Daddy's typewriter from the newspaper - love
