Ok CD, dear friend / mon amie,

OK Eric... I think you need to start with the French lessons (I am NOT your "amie"! - "ami" may be but not "amie" - got it? No pot story thanks).

I would like to try the French Food Festival of course... Should we relocate the next WNDC ? :wink:

And I would recommend to see “Earth from above" - great pictures.

Ah... French language...

This time you are right (remember: better check the 'grosse ta gueulle' thing, it is as French as French can get... :P ), it must have been the fact I always write to my friends in France as 'amie, because... well, they are female... :mrgreen:

Allors, cher ami,

Allons y!

Where is Sapphire when you need her... :?

I think she's taking care of her cellophane and chairs... give her some time.

Let's go for sure - everybody is invited!

I would be interested in food, wine, paintings and the photo exhibition. Its still a while away, lets not get all jumpy eh?

Though, right now, the thought of any alcohol is making me feel sick!

I will have to take misses Eric with us as well, as she was not too amused after my last WNDC with CD and Sapphire... :oops:

After that she will be happy, happy! :???:

I am sure if I would suggest to go free wine tasting, she suggests to bring me to a clinic for alcoholics... :D

She loves French food though, so will make a move in that direction.

Yeah bring Mrs. Eric along, the more the merrier. So, when is this going to happen? I think CD should plan this, fix a date and time.

OK to fix a date and time, but I need to know a bit about your availability.

Week days? Week ends? After what time?

Anybody else wants to join?

Pretty boy? Local girl? :devil:
