The Boys Received a RAK!

One of my most favorite friends, Keith, sent the boys a
package!  Spencer always checks the mail and looks for
his name.  This one was extra fun because it
came from Great Britain!





It was a nice train magazine!


A few hours later I peeked into the boys' bedroom and
found Spencer flipping through the pages!


Isn't this the cutest picture?
They all took turns looking.
Thanks, Keith!

      Curmudgeon. Just the sound of that word makes me laugh!

    10. What a fabulous word! . . . . lol

    11. Oh I am so grateful for learning such extraordinary words here now and then! Curmudgeon I've certainly never seen before. Is it especially American? Old fashioned?

    12. Hello Christel - tonight was the first time I met the word, courtesy of LInda
      Just looked it up
      Curmudgeon means a bad-tempered or surly person.
      A little hard of Linda do you not think . . . Keith is not quite that bad!!! . . . .lol

    3. Sorry about the deletion above. I meant to say it's nice that the my friends in Bloggyland like me, cos I don't !

      Maybe I'm thick, but what does RAK mean? I hate all these abbreviations on the net, because I don't understand half of them, IHT !

      Delete
    4. Oh Betsy is asleep, as usual . . . but I can answer that question RAK = Random Act Of Kindness

    5. Ah, well Eddie beat Wanda to the answer, but he's right. And now you know, Keith! :)

  15. Ok , Keith, what I really want to know is how to say curmudgeon in French!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It IS a French word, but the English stole it! A "Nice old gentleman" is "un beau vieux gentilhomme" I know that because everybody in the village in France calls me that.

      Linda has got a lot to answer for; "curmudgeon" indeed!

      Delete
    2. Get out of that!

      Na-na-nun-e-nah!

    3. Na-na-nun-e-nah!.....is that French, too?
