Greetings from Fredrick

I worked for most of my publishing life on a 1923 cast-iron Underwood upright given to me by my grandfather when I was twelve.

A few years back, the only man in Omaha who knew how to repair it died. I purchased this HP contraption and used it as a word processor until a few weeks ago when the post office raised the price of postage again.

I decided to join the 21st century. It’s a tad scary. Things move very quickly on this side of tomorrow. And there is occasional grace – I have found YouTube!
