This is an eBay score that I probably paid too much for, in no small part due to the words of Alan Seaver over at his "Machines Of Loving Grace" website regarding this model: "Galaxies from this era are splendid machines to type on, among the best from the '70s." For some reason that simple declaration began a lusting in my heart for one of these green platened beauties and I decided I just had to have one. Happy to say I wasn't disappointed; the action on this baby is incredible and it's easily my favorite machine to type on.

I'm a registered nurse working with the elderly in a long-term care facility, and am of course working on the Great American Novel in the off hours. I recently rediscovered the typewriter after a 20+ year hiatus, and in this world of smartphones and laptops it feels good to be back home again. I write differently on the typewriter than I do on a computer, which is a good thing. I've only acquired 5 so far and am actively fighting the urge to buy "just one more." I live in the beautiful Central / Leatherstocking region of New York State with my wife and our 5 cats.
