  • For Marcel (and everyone else)

    I'm sorry Marcel, but for some reason when I read this I thought of you.

    Some friends took their first-grader on a trip to Canada.
    To help pass the time,the boy practiced his new reading skills by calling out road signs.
    He fell asleep just before they entered Quebec.
    When he awoke, he saw the french highway signs and said in a worried tone,
    "I think I forgot how to read while I was asleep"

        It's cute and funny,

        Sorry Carl,

        That doesn't make any sense in French "Amuse much my friends"

        I take it you wrote initially "Very funny my friend"

        Which would translate as " Très drôle mon ami"

          That story brought back the culture shock I experienced as a lad of 21 on a month-long business trip to Sept-Îles, Quebec.

          Most of the people I dealt with were bilingual, so things went pretty well. However, in one store I was having a great deal of trouble making my needs known to the clerk. After several attempts, I burst out, "You MUST know what I'm saying! You have only TWO TV channels!" Ugly American, eh?

          I also remember that the food was fantastic. We ate practically every day at Lino's Restaurant, taking a break every few days at the Auberge. Lino was an Italian trained to cook in France, and he had Chinese cooks, so my three favorite cuisines were well-represented. I had truffles twice (and never since) and gained 15 pounds!

              Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

              I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

              These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
