The Deliciousness of the South

Recently I purchased a Claxton fruitcake. I looked past the re-gifting jokes and sunk my teeth into a chilled piece of their cake and to my surprise and delight it was delicious. It is crammed with fruit and nuts with only enough cake batter to be able to call it a cake.

I visited the company’s website to get a mailing address and while I was there I discovered I could purchase other items from them. I purchased a fabulous t-shirt which I intend to wear to the gym this Holiday season. My t-shirt order was processed within minutes - on a Saturday morning - and by Tuesday I was strolling my neighborhood in my new shirt. The card shown below was in the box with my shirt. A nice touch from a first-class company that’s keeping alive the deliciousness of the South.

If you haven’t tried a Claxton fruitcake you are missing out.

This is my first attempt at typecasting, a way to combine my use of a typewriter with modern digital communications. I've spent the last three months buying, selling, test-driving typewriters, and, most importantly, rediscovering my joy of typing on a typewriter. For the last few months much of my discretionary time has been spent typing and mailing letters to people in a one-on-one communication strategy. Hopefully typecasting, such as this, will allow me to do both. If so, I am blessed. I can't say the same for my readers. More change will come as I sort this out. I look forward to your comments. Please be kind or at least use capital letters sparingly. Thanks for reading.

p.s. I do not charge for typographical errors. They are the fault of whatever typewriter I am using.
