1941 July 2 and 3

July 2 and 3, 1941

We are taking a look at the memory book created by Charlotte Isham after she and Anne Hausmann (two young school teachers) took a road trip of over 11,000 miles across America in 1941.  The journey begins here and continues, on July 2nd, below ...

  3. Hi John, I didn' t have an address for you so am leaving a comment here. You can delete this after you read it. I just wanted to thank you for your lovely comment on my blog and to let you know that you can call me Joyful as that is my blogger name. Someone must have thought my name was Joy. Some people call me by my real name once they learn what it is but I prefer they use "Joyful". Thank you so much again. Keep dry in Seattle. It is rather wet here at the moment too.
