so the talking is probably helping them than because, its not their first language and you have to think in the second one for it to come out your mouth. ( which you know since you are bilingual)

I know J is hurting ok I know I also know he could not see how bad Storm had gotten and the whole posting videos just floors me. and I think I am going to ask him to take them down when he gets home.

Exhange students are very interesting!

My Sis and BIL had several when their kids were in high school. Some of them became life long friends of our entire family. Some of them it was ok when they left. One of them they put back on a plane home after two weeks! (He was sixteen, and demanded beer with his food. BIL is a Baptist Minister, teehee)

We're leaving at 3:30 in the morning to go to Inyokern Airport.
We'll fly to LAX
To Chicago
and then to Minneapolis.

We'll drive from Minneapolis to Redwing and be there until Thursday when we do the reverse route.

We rented a car in Minneapolis and got a room at the Day's Inn. I hope theirs is decent. *bites nails*

Yep. Just us. We were going to take Lorna but we decided it wasn't a good time for her to have to get to know people... her memory of them would be skewed.

Yes, Jul/Jule is Scandinavian and maybe Germanic for Yule.

The Christmas cards my sis gets from the former exchange students usually say "Good Jul", or "God Yule"?

Multi-lingual I might be, but my abilities reach only to French and Melanesian Pidgin. Much beyond that and I am as dependent on and online translator as the next person.

Welcome to the city, too bad it's for such sad circumstances. Red Wing is just over an hour from me.

What am I saying Red Wing, the airport is only about 35 minutes from me, 10-15 minutes from my folks and where I grew up.

I love redwing pottery. we (hubs and I ) did a tour of the factory probably 20 years ago now and bought this huge huge biggest bowl you ever seen in your life... ( hubs used it when making 4 batches of salsa at a time...) he broke it this summer. I keep looking online but, I have a feeling this bowl is so big you can only get it in person.

so someday we have to go back.

they are mostly cell phone photos. so Im letting him leave them he showed them to me in his computer ( much larger than thumbnails and not at horrible angles... he was trying to convince him self storm was getting better so tried to take the best angles he could) anyways... we've been swapping photos and stories so... at least he's talking to me again.

My brother had a really hard time when he had to put his dog (Daisy) down, hip problems. They had an extra special bond because she helped him through his divorce. His new wife found a photo of Daisy a few years back and had an oil painting made, it's about 16x20 maybe, huge, and it hangs on the wall at the top of their stairs.
