Always carry a letter

I saw this Remington in the window of a charity shop on my way to catch my train from the coast back to the Fens. There wasn’t time to take it out of the window display to test, so I fed a letter from my MP I had in my bag into to the machine from an awkward position and tested / demonstrated the typewriter to passers by. Eagle eyed observers will see that this machine has an American keyboard with a British conversion. Looks like it was last serviced in the late eighties. For £30 it’s not bad, I think I would have bought it if I hadn’t been in such a hurry and if I didn’t already have a house-move to deal with! Anyway, combining two subjects here, I can relate my MPs response to my People’s Vote postcard. Needless to say, I intend to keep up my end of the conversation until that so-called meaningful vote in the House has been cast…

The fluffy white animal (stoat?!) got knocked off its perch with the carriage return. Oops.


One of 700,000

So after the big day some of us wrote to our MPs… this picture was taken early on as we waited to join in the throng. It was great to see so many wonderful placards, and fantastic to be among so many high spirited passionate and well behaved people 😉

I was so in the moment I didn’t get my phone out for the whole day. A lot of people asked me what my sign meant… so I thought I’d better include an explanation for my Tory Brexiteer MP ( I didn’t vote for him).

I’ll be there

And this is my sign…I’ll be marching in London UK on 20th October. (The answer to the clue is not “rooster” 🤣) I would have liked to have painted this on a typewriter style font but time is short
