    How nice to win an award. Congrats on winning. Nice to know some facts about you. I only took one year of French. I couldn’t remember a thing and failed the whole course. On the last day of school I opened my notebook over the trash and let the French papers fly. The teacher was not amused. I didn’t like him and he didn’t like me.

      Thanks! I know how you feel- my French teacher and I hated each other too, he saw my doodles in my textbook and was NOT amused, haha!

    I used to have a Shiz Tzu dog. But had to give him away when we moved two years ago. Boo-hoo! I only two years of French. Your not a granny for kniting and crocheting or cross stitching! I hand quilt and crochet. But haven’t taken the time to focus on any of it lately. (sigh) I grew up in the eighties…lol! I had “big hair”, and wore “flats” ,and those jeans, they call “skinny ” now a days…lol! I don’t have any Russian nesting dolls. But love them anyway. Russia is a country that has always held my interest. And London….oh! How I would love to see it! My maiden name is Bennett. Very English last name…lol! Although I’m Irish too. Lol! And my husband is of French and Germany descent…lol! Our poor kids! Their just mutts! Thanks for sharing about yourself.

      Aww I’m sorry about your puppy! I know what you mean about not having time to focus on crocheting and other crafts- I haven’t had enough time and I’m so behind on my projects! Such a shame 😦
