Pardonnez Moi...Pardonnez Moi!

Well, gang, I only brought my iPad Mini with me to Canadia, and as it turns out I can't do a lot of stuff on it I would have been able to do had I brought my laptop.

Hence, the whole Canadian experience I had planned to blog about this week is, je regrette, beyond my technological prowess.

Regular and deeply humbled posting resumes on the morrow upon our return to the US of A.

Looking forward to it. The wife and I are considering the same trip, hope you enjoyed.

you have to give the quebeckers credit, they have gone to some trouble to retain their frenchiness and they have succeeded

which reminds me of a joke about charles de gaulle and lyndon baines johnson having a conversation, when both were presidents of their respective countries

lbj was trying to impress on de gaulle just HOW BIG texas is

finally he said - and when repeating this joke orally it is fun to add dialectical pronounciation, but i will not attempt to reproduce with quaint spelling -

"look at it this way, general - you can get on a train in texas on monday, and on friday you'll STILL be in texas"

de gaulle replied, "finalement je comprends, monsieur le president - we have also in france the slow train"

I have a hilarious real DeGaulle story I'll share when I'm back in civilization. 😀

Apparently, he can't be shamed into it.
