Oscar, You Are Fantastic

Mondays are always a little blah. My Monday became far less blah when one of my former students stopped by. He had something he found that he wanted to give to me.

The racy stripe was a giveaway.

It's a beautiful machine.

It's a litte dirty with eraser shavings and such, but it works well.

And getting a gift from a student is really nice. So, Oscar you are fantastic. Thank you!

I have not posted as much as I have wanted, but there are still many days left in ITAM. There have also been some interesting developments on the Underwood in the restoration series.


  1. A gift Lettera? Wow! You must be a pretty inspiring teacher to warrant such a thing. Well done.

  2. It doesn't look in bad condition at all! Such a nice gift.

  3. How can you go wrong with Oscar, his surname is Olivetti!

  4. Congratulations! It is a wonderful looking Lettera 32. You must have left a great and lasting impression on Oscar.

  5. Very, very nice! Sure beats an apple left on the edge of the desk. :D
