You're scaring me, Fred.  :D 

I'm kinda hoping some of that intelligence will rub off.  :P :)

It's okay, you noticed that I didn't say I did any of the languages very well...

As I tell people here, I speak Spanish just fine, it is just that people have problems understanding me.  :D
So, how did I end up here anyway?

I know what you mean.  I worked real hard to learn New Jersey when I was in the Navy.    Had a shipmate  from there and we were always talking "at" each other.  There was usually someone in the Division that would interpret when they saw that we were having problems.    I worked at it real hard

The problem was that, when I tried to talk New Jersey,  I confused him and the interpreter too.  :D

Why do you think FDH is so hard to understand? He has lived in NJ, AR and Florida. It all gets mixed up in there and strange phrases comes out...  :D

 Being from "TRUE" American stock, I've had to try to communicate in several languages, myself. European "English", "Joisey" Yankee, "Hillbilly", Arkansas, and a mixed bag in Florida. NOW, you give me a hard time tryin to sypher Espanol. Maybe this esplanes why it gets jumble up, at my age, EH ??  Oh yeah, that's Canadian.  ;D ;D :D :D
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

I haven't studied Marcel's Canadian and don't think I would do a very good job with it.  We have, though, been training Marcell with "Mississippi", especially the Yazoo dialects.  He's understanding a pretty good bit of it now, I think.  :D :D

Well,  Tom,  I could teach you about half the spanish language (in one word) that you would need aboard ship to talk to those yankees :D :D :D

stop all this nonsense, please.

I come to the FF because I usually understand the language.
growing up in and  living in a country where you don't speak the language is a tough life. I know this from first hand experience, I have lived in California my whole life, and I don't speak Spanish.

This is about the best I could do at the moment.

Want you to cease spitting me above while you speak!  Have you a head has to make jump the manhole covers!  One rocked you too much close to the wall?  And the annual forum gathering is ' Boucherie' with the chart leave-to make soup of the day

deja vu all over again. :D

Reminds me of being back aboard ship.   Is this some kind of New Jersey? :P


Yeah, Florida is that way too, Solodan  :D

'Would you stop spitting on me while you're talking!'

'You've got a face that would blow off manhole covers'

On t'a berc trop prs du mur?
'As a child, was your cradle rocked too close to the wall?'

And the annual forum gathering is 'Boucherie' = Pig Roast

la carte = each available separately

laissez-faire = leave it alone

soupe du jour = soup of the day

:D :D :D It was funny reading some of your interpretations :D :D ;D

No one seems to have mentioned the preoccupation with GRITS  but if you're into them, you'll be a big hit here.

A couple of months ago i made the 2hr drive to the valley to go to The Home Depot. I was completely lost once I got inside, everything was in spanish, I mean everything. every sign was written in spanish, with little English translations underneath. I thought perhaps I had been in the mountains for too long without T.V.

It's only fair, people move here from the USA and can't understand why everyone is speaking Spanish. I kid you not...  ::)

So, how did I end up here anyway?

I swear, these threads have more curves than a fer-de-lance! I had to check up at the top and see what the original thread was about - after a while they all wander into various topics. Grits, snakes, oh, and even sometimes, wood!
