The poems and typewriter-thoughts of Mark Petersen
Wow. Nice desk, and it's great to know the history of your practically-new Royal!
Great setup you have there! I like... And it feels very nice with that Royal.
My patio is not covered, so I cannot really put a desk out there, unfortunately. Your setup looks quite nice. I do, however, occasionally use the giant wire spools on our patio for typing. A bit awkward, as they are higher than a desk, but I take out a bar chair and make it work.
Outdoor typing in the rain is real nice, and the porch has a metal roof so it's even better. My house is old and ghetto, but it has its charms (front porch, wood floors, high ceilings).
