I had a dog that understood the command "Go to ..." and words like door, car and kitchen. One day on TV his attention was grabbed by a tiger. I mentioned "tiger" in a statement to him. He perked up and looked toward a window. For some reason I said it again. He ran to the window, didn't see anything and then to the door. Son-of-a-gun. He knew the name of the neighbor's cat, a pal. I say this because he never did catch on to the command "Go to Peg."(tiger picture)
Dear NOT a serious thread 2019 - the return,Rick, So nice to see your avatar and witt on the "Not a serious thread". I know you are a busy man waiting on Peg hand and foot, but try not to stay away so long.
I know Rick, she’s been playing one against the other...me too! Such a brazen huzzy..Dear NOT a serious thread 2019 - the return,
I'm sorry but the geek in me has had a fling with that floozy Can we please talk kilometres, litres, Celsius, right-side driving, etc.? thread. Will you take me back? It was not serious.
Rick, I know the problem when you hear the siren call from someone seeking your attention and affections...think what Peg would say! Me, l wasn’t ready for so serious a relationship and longed for the carefree existence. It could never last..we were going in different directions and she (or l )didn’t measure up after all. Infidelity to the “not serious” is such a weight to carry but a bit of geekiness or mischief is never a bad thing!I've got to come back. The metric thread give me an ultimatum; to love her or liter.
Looks a little like hiking from Villa Franca Montes de Oca to St Juan de Ortega on CF!
Loved it! Thanks for the tip!Look at the thread @trecile started:

Fascinating documentary on BBC4 last night - the changing role of the guitar over the last 60 years fronted by Patti Smith's lead guitar player Lenny Kaye.
The Spanish class was good, not that I learned so much new stuff but I had a lot of conversation practice, which was great. It was quite a jolly bunch of people and every night we went out for dinner or tapas-crawl with vino tinto and night cap(s). The weather was fine with mostly sunshine and around 20 C in the daytime, so in between had some nice walks in the mountains just behind the city. I returned home with a tanned face to snow and freezing temperatures –shock!How did the spanish classes work out? I daren’t ask in Spanish or I will get my dedos cortados by someone else on this thread...
Hey, your dad was taking care of you. They guy was a star in an X rated film. ...my how times have changed!It now always reminds me of the movie "The Graduate", which for me will always be a favorite as I loved Dustin Hoffman's role. My dad thought the theme was was too "racey" for a teenager and I wasn't allowed to see it at the theater...my how times have changed!
British English? What is this British English of which you speak?In answer to a @kirkie post elsewhere: Peg's own creative writing certificate was given to her by me. A sweatshirt with this on it:
Hooked on Phonetics was a reading program that didn't work for everyone. I don't know how the programme could possibly work for British English readers.
Good grief no! English vocabulary is 50% Germanic, 50% French the rest is made up of Latin and whatever words we managed to steal over the past 900 or so years.Sorry, I thought it was the Germans and French speaking Vikings.
LOL.Good grief no! English vocabulary is 50% Germanic, 50% French the rest is made up of Latin and whatever words we managed to steal over the past 900 or so years.
The rules are entirely home grown and hence the reason why chairs are not feminine, beds are not masculine and we never have to remember whether to use der das die die den das die die des des der der dem dem der or den* when we want to say the word "the" (unless we are learning German or re-learning in my case and it isn't any easier the second time around!)
Esperanto is much easier!
* Native German speakers should feel free to correct me if I've left any out
Biscuit: as in sweet treats, or differently flavored crisp finger foods?This one takes the biscuit, in any language!
