Still no sign of your AM- think it was lost at sea.  I'll keep a weather eye out for it.

Hi!  Thanks for your postal stationery envelope!  Yes I love these old pieces of mail - and I really like the image inside with the cats and guitar.  sweet.  With your typewriter, there should be a little metal lever you push to change the direction the ribbon moves.  On my Smith Corona, a tiny metal bar - I don't know what else to call it - it to the far upper left of the keys.  I can push it up or down (there is no marking indicating what it does) to switch the direction the ribbon flows.  So when it reaches the end in one direction, it appears to run out of ink, and as soon as I switch that tiny lever, it starts moving the other way and clears.  I hope this helps.

You should not have to manually flip your ribbon each time.  Let me know.  I like your carved Mike stamp.  Very nice of Bonniediva.  I am getting ready to head out on a trip so I will resume my IUOMA work in November.  Cheers!
