While Grandpa was outside studying the clouds and weather and Grandma was inside bolting windows shut, Mommy is writing today about typewriter ribbons: “The new typewriter ribbon has finally been installed and my hands are covered with blue ink. But it’s worth it. Now you can read what we write. It seems we can’t get ribbons for portable typewriters so we have to buy the regular size and rewind it onto the smaller spools. It’s very messy.” And here’s good news: Daddy is enjoying his teaching position at the School of Medical Detached Enlisted Technicians and thinks it may become a permanent posting.
