Je comprend bien, mais je parle seulement un petit peu.

 

Can you believe that at one time, I was almost fluent en francais?

 

In my oral college boards, I got 700 in french. Sadly, it's

all gone now because I haven't used it in so many years.

C'est dommage, n'est ce pas? La langue francais est la plus belle

dans tout le monde!

 

When I was in my 20s, I decided to take a German language course

( I have NO clue why) and after a few weeks, the teacher asked me:

"Are your parents from Bavaria?" HUH?? I told her my parents

were American and all 4 grandparents were from Ireland.

According to her, I had a "perfect Bavarian accent".

What was SHE :drinkin: ?

 

M1, I don't know how "frais" I am, but you'd be right on target if

you'd said: "M2, vous etes fou!" :nuts:

 

BEUVERIE Biere, mon cher ami M1! :drinkin: PLUSIEURS biere! :drinkin:

..... sorry.........

 

.. I wasn't at the exact place where your father was, but you will see the church. This village is Archettes, and it touchs the town of Arches. If you want, the moselle river is the border between Arches and Archettes. I let you insert these pics on this wonderful forum.

A bientot,

Gerome

Oh-oh Gerome! I haven't seen the pictures.

Something must've happened when you sent them. :unsure:

Maybe Marion can help.

I'm puzzled too. I don't know what happened to the attached photos. It's not you; they have disappeared. WOW! Must be a poltergeist!! YIKES!

 

Hey, if anyone who posted photos here could go back and re-attach, that would be great. I know that's asking a lot since it was so long ago, but perchance...

 

Sorry, gang; me is stumped! :armata_PDT_23:
