PC Class with my Dear Friend♪

Short post from last Thursday;
My friend came to my house and we had a reviewing of PC usage together.  As I needed to use flash-memory for my new PC. She also wished to know the way how to save the information from her PC into them. 
She is examining my PC

She kindly bought these for me♪


*My old typewriter






Yesterday, I've noticed that I still have my old typewriter deep back on the shelf which I was using long ago for teaching English at home. I don't even remember how the floppy disk worked now.   Haha, I think it's ok to throw out that one, although I'm a bit emotionally attached to it as it was my first one of the kinds.
When I was a young teenager, I really had longing for the elegant, efficient looking beautiful secretary appeared in the TV drama from U.S like "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.".  Oh, I remember so amazed with the huge sized computer as well at that time.  A little retrospective post, too. (*^_^*)

It sounds like a great visit you had with her, my dear friend Miyako, and she also brought you some lovely gifts. Ah yes- I, too, remember the typewriters of the olden days..

What lovely gifts your friend brought for you dear Miyako. I hope you managed to get things sorted out on your computers. I learned to type on one of those big black typewriters back in the early 1960's. It was like driving a double decker bus. Hee Hee! Hope you're having a good weekend. Sending love & hugs from West to East x

Good Evening Miyako

What a lovely gift from your friend and to spend time with her must have been lovely for you both.

I think the old typewriter is wonderful and I would keep it
- soon it will be an antique.

Hope your husband is well
and that you are now completely efficient on your new pc!

Take care of yourself and have a lovely weekend

This post made me smile, Miyako. I learned to type on an old typewriter. Then we got the Selectric which had a little ball, and I was thrilled to be able to "type" in script! I was one of those efficient secretaries from 1972-2000. Then I was a bank teller, 2001-2009, still using a computer constantly. Much prefer retired life. hee hee xo

I hope you and your friend got the computers figured out. She brought you some beautiful gifts.
I learned to type on one of those old typewriters. I would love to have one now. I would keep it if I were you!
Hugs from Minnesota!

I remember my first typewriter too, I got it when I was 14yrs old and it was blue and I loved it. I sometimes wish I had a working typewriter now it would make writing letters on pretty letter paper so much easier since I find it difficult to print on some of the pretty paper I like. I was never a fast typer but I make few mistakes which I guess is something......

Wow I haven't seen floppy disks for a long time! I remember my mom used typewriter in the office and it made a big sound as she typed :-)
The gift your friend brought is so cute! Is it flowers made of glass? I used to collect glass animals when I was small. I think I still have some in my hometown.

Miyako, Thank you for joining my site and what I can share. Your old typewriter wasn't that old. I remember Man from U.N.C.L.E. that is so funny you mentioned that show. I loved all the trick spy stuff he had.

Have a pleasant day.

Dear Miyako, Hope that you're having a lovely Sunday. It's amazing how much the technology has evolved over the years don't you think?
I am slowly getting back to life again, not fully recovered but at least I can sit up by the computer a little.
Enjoy the rest of your day my friend.
Hugs x

Oh! I learned to type on one of those big old typewriters. I remember you had to hammer the keys so hard, I had a bit of a hard time adjusting to an electric typewriter!

I love that typewriter. I'm so pleased we have the "delete" and "backspace" buttons now!
