An unbearably smug moment, with a goodly number of birthday candles

Linda Kinnear (one of the fearless leaders of PPP) and I have been having a wee bit of a dust-up over whether Dufresne is pronounced du-FRES-neh or du-FRAIN. The latter is how the French Canadians around my husband's family home would say the name.

And now I want to tell her that I now have it from the man himself that it is . . . du-FRAIN.

So there!

Do I win something?

In other fearless leader news, today--August 4--is the birthday for Carrie Gates. It has been a big week for birthdays around here. My father turned 80 on August 2nd. I won't say how old Carrie is. I'll keep it to myself.

But since she's a mountain storyteller, she'll probably have some sort of whopper on hand.

Happy Birthday, Carrie Gates!

Happy Birthday to you.

-I've been cleaning my room at school and getting it ready for two days now. Exhaustion is setting in.
See you in the mountains.

thanks Marly, Of course you can't tell my age, because it's sorta close to yours!!!!! I'll just say I think its illegal to have that many candles unless you have a VERY large cake!! And don't you have a birthday sometime soon, or am I forgetting???? I'm looking forward to next week, I think we'll have a ball! Carrie

I bought an "8" candle and a "zero" candle on Tuesday. The bag boy looked at them and said, "Oh, is somebody turning 8?"

Happy b-day all day long, Carrie--

That last comment, Marly, could lead to a really interesting short story or a hilarious poem, too funny.

Technology, ain't it grand? Can you imagine anyone over the age 40 making such a guess?

See you in 02 days!
