On the way to Target to do the daily shopping, I happened to stop by a yard sale. I am never very hopeful that I will find anything, but this time I found a Remington Travel-Riter for $1. It's in pretty good shape, but I am considering repainting it something outrageous. It has a nice shape and it would be a lot nicer if it was a little shinier and a different color. It's very snappy to type on. The platen might be a little hard, but if I am disassembling it to repaint, I might send it to Ames for recovering. I've never have had a platen recovered. I've read that a new, soft platen is a joy to use.

After some sprucing it will enter into the classroom rotation.
