|Good call, Fred. Hope you and everyone else on here is well. |
I've been in Tampa, FL since the end of January, after 2-1/2 months in Ramsgate & Broadstairs, England. Been staying in different places, without a car. Being in Yankley without a car...I shudder to think of how I would be dealing with this if I'd not had the experience of living in Germany for 14 years.
Anyway, perhaps ironically or just coincidentally, the lockdown hasn't really affected me much at all. I've been walking to do my shopping, and I've not had a job in ... a long time. If I had not had the viral pneumonia a year ago, I'd likely be thinking things are being overblown.
I am toying with the idea of returning to Oregon. Or the desert SW, though likely not Vegas.
I have not drunk beer since a final farewell to London on 13th Jan, with a pint of that lovely nectar, Fullers London Pride. Well, it was the best pint of it I've ever had, anyway. I can't afford beer at US prices anyway.
It's interesting to hear how things are in lovely Aachen from Becki. Her trip over on the QMII with doggie1 (Tabor) was set for April. Well, that got postponed until...?
I miss German plumbing and housing construction standards. I don't miss Germans' tendency to complain about things. I miss the safety and security of European life. I miss my old gym in Erlangen. I'll stop there.
