Poor Typist

I'm probably the only person in the world...

The page ran out quickly with that Primus print wheel at 1½ line spacing. I meant to mention that I was using the multi-strike ribbon. I just recently picked up another one of these moderately rare gems, so I don't feel like I have to horde this one. I like that it doesn't have that solid black look to the print, helping to distinguish it from something composed and printed with modern equipment. Curious how long each ribbon will last... but I'm not going to be the one to put it to the test! //gs

It's now 8:55 am and I am just about to start...

I feel this typing example of my beloved Royal Companion deserves some explanation. Many of the problems you see in the typing are due to the fact that the typewriter was perched atop a stack of my wife's papers on her desk, so it wasn't level, and was, in fact, a bit wobbly. It's a much better typer than is demonstrated here. I don't dare move my wife's papers, as she has a "system," and I don't envy her workload.
