Marie,

What you call jonquils we call daffodils.

Actually, what Marie calls jonquils we call daffodils, too!  LOL

Congratulations on your chocolate retirement, Frances, and good luck in your future endeavors.  Retirement from work to full-time quilting wasn't an option?

 

Marie, always trys to confuse me, most days its not difficult.

Nancy no retirement from work to full time quilting wasnt an option.......oh how i wish.

Thank you to everyone for there kind words.

lots of love

Francesxx

Frances, good luck on the next leg of this journey we call life.  You will make a wonderful teaching assistant.    I can work with the kids at school one morning a week, much more than that and I would go bonkers.

 

Gini what do you mean you would go bonkers, i thought you already were.

lots of love

Francesxx

Frances, I found this post over on the Quilting Board and figured this must be one of your friends.  If she is not talking about you, and you did not receive this gift, then I am sending it to you virtually.

 

A dear friend is leaving our place of employment to venture out to another job.

I will miss her... this is my gift to her.

Hope she likes it.

Best of luck with your new job.  Have fun and enjoy yourself.  And when all else fails just dance.  I know that it will calm down all the little "angels".

Actually Frances, I'm from Ontario, Canada!  And even though my first language is French, I try really hard not to make obvious mistakes like that one... There is a big difference between lick and luck even in French!  Hihihi.

it just gives my friends great pleasure when my accent makes words sound totally different.

I can understand that i once had a Nigerian lady working with us, everytime she said sheet it sounded like a four letter word beginning with s and ending in t, we were quite often in stiches especially when she said it to someone and they used to look and think did she really say what i thought she said and when she said wheelie bin it sounded like willie bean.

lots of love

So I guess you too would thoroughly enjoy my trials with the English language...lol. It's ok that is how I learn to think twice and speak once...hihihi. After 26 years in English com unities, my accent is not as strong as it used to be, except to the ears of strangers.  I noticed the smiles and look when the madams who were marauding in Michigan heard me talk for the first time on Skype or FaceTime. And it's ok...this is me.

angele, i was smiling because i was able to do face time with you.  another technological breakthrough for me,  thanks to kris.

 living in the western states, we only hear one accent.  boring.  it is a joy to go to the retreats in the east and listen to the accents from all over our country and from  yours.   actually in the summer our  albertan neighbors show up  with their accents.  several families own condos here.  what a fun group they are.

  my favorite accent, so far,  is  sabrina's.   i could listen to her soft drawl, all day long.
