une mois! Mais oui!

I can't believe it's been a month since I blogged!!!  I've really been working at my french class, and believe you me, it's work for someone who hasn't been to school in ahem, 30 years, and who did not learn any foreign languages as a child.  Sesame street didn't exist in the stone age so I didn't even get a bit of Spanish!  Lest you think I have been toiling away solely on conjugation of french verbs, I have taken to sneaking ahead in the book and finding useful phrases for my future visit to La Belle Paris!
Je suis perdu
- I am lost
Peux-tu m'aider?
- can you help me?
Combien cela coŭte?
- how much is this?
Je voudrais une bouteille de vin rouge s'il vous plait.
-I would like a bottle of red wine please.
Je voudrias un autre, s'il vous plait.
-I would like another please.
J'ai besoin de grandes quantités de vin.
-I require vast quantities of wine.

All useful phrases right?
I found another online...
Aimez vous acheter de moi quelque cheveux voles?
-would you like to buy some stolen horses from me?
uh, oh... perhaps not so useful?

I can call everyone Ma petite chou.  My little cabbage.
yeah, I'll stick with that one.   That and the wine I think.
and since I don't like to blog without pictures here is a picture of me and my dad in honor of veterans day.
My dad served during the Korean "police conflict"   I'm very proud of him!

Always so wonderful to see you - and that pic' of you and your Dad is priceless. So cute - and you look just like him!

Your phrases just cracked me up. "Vast quantities of wine" heehee - so, so very useful! :) And you never know. The horse one may just come in handy. :D

Hugs to you. Keep up the good work.

Always good for a laugh, Mary! I agree, all useful phrases, especially the one about buying stolen horses... gosh, who knows when a person might need that one!

I'm glad you are enjoying your French class and doing very well. Love the pic of you and your dad.
