Do You Remember When You Got Your First Typewriter?

I had always wanted to learn to type and of course took it in high school. When I was 17 my Dad bought my first typewriter and I still have it. I am now almost 85. It is a portable Underwood in a carrying case. It most likely was ordered from Sears and delivered by mail. Since then I have had a few more, one types script only, another is a nice electric one with some memory and then there are a couple that were left in the big school building we bought. I have never had a job where I used my typing as I was a stay at home wife and Mother. I have used my typing a great deal during my adult life. Do you remember your first typewriter?
