Smorgasbord Posts from My Archives – Letters from America 1985-1987 – Adventures in the USA -Arrival in Houston by Sally Cronin


    1. Hi Sally.

      You’re welcome. A very enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more.

      It’s always neat seeing how those who are visiting our country for the first time see us and your letters from then are a great way to view that.

      1. Great thank you Patty.. stay safe.

        1. Hi.

          At present, I’m basically sheltering in place.

          Trying to go out as little as is possible.

          When I do go out, once I’m back home, I take a shower or wash thoroughly and change clothes.

          I understand from folks riding our public transit system that they’ve placed dividers in the seats to separate passengers from one another.

          I may find out more about that today, as I really need to make a quick trip to the store.

          I’m not sure I’ll go though, as our confirmed virus cases has risen quite a bit over the last few days.

          1. Good plan Patty.. like you I shower and change as soon as I get back in and wash my water and soap is certainly effective.. Hope you manage to get out to the store safely.. take care.

          2. Hi Sally.

            In an effort to stay on topic of your post, I am curious, since you’ve a lot of great stuff in your archives, do you have any writings of pandemics of the past?

            I’m considering doing a post about those, in comparison to today and I thought your archives might house something I could use as reference.

            You’re the most meticulous blogger I’ve ever run across. So organized and your posts present so well.

            Have learned so much from you.

          3. Thanks Patty.. sorry I haven’t got anything on that subject.. You will find some great information on pandemics and the history of some of the worst at Wikipedia at this link…. hope that helps..

          4. Hi.

            Thanks and do keep those wonderful letters comin.

            They’re a treasure to be sure.
