Um… what’s a mimeograph? (It’s kind of a shame no one uses telegrams anymore; faxes and text messages and emails got rid of them.)
Mmmm, that great smell of newly printed mimeograph paper. Takes me back to elementary school!
Why not use the Pony express or smoke signals!
Just send a pigeon.
Tell them to flax it, because I need more fiber.
Mimeograph? I missed those! We had them all the time in school. I used to love the smell of the mimeograph machine in the morning! (afternoons, too!)
Yay, ditto ink and paste. The big two grade school vices.
Or you could get a FAX card for your computer, assuming you have a scanner built into your printer. (Why not just e-mail?)
A mimeograph flashback…I used to help my Dad mimeograph the church bulletins. The quilting circle will meet at….the altar flowers were presented by….man those church bulletins smell good,
Most ‘faxing’ has become scan to a pdf and then emailed, but there are still people with out an email address. They remind me of when I was a kid and the people who resisted getting a TV. Now, I find this generation (the one after the ‘X") don’t even use TV’s they get all their visual entertainment through the internet. Times and changes are speeding up.
Waaaayyy back when, mimeographs were a mixed blessing. The plus side was… as several readers have mentioned… the almost intoxicating scent when they had just been produced. On the minus side…. it meant we were about to take a test.
The fax did have its good points.
Our doctor’s office staff claim they don’t have the capability to send or recieve e-mail. Why wouldn’t a doctor’s office have even rudimentary e-mail, especially in the cases where time is usually of the essence regarding patients?
Don’t know what mimeograph is…
When I was sin seminary (late 1950s) the joke was that when Martin Luther threw the ink well at the devil, the devil got mad. It took awhile, but the devil invented the Mimeograph and has been throwing ink at preachers ever since. Mimeograph is an A. B. Dick trade name and should have an initial capital. Copier was the approved generic.
Sin seminary? Wish I had gone there!
should have said send a teletype
