Creole, English, French, and Spanish Spoken Here!

 Tracy and Tremain Morris celebrated their 15th Wedding Anniversary this past Saturday.  I have placed pictures of Tracy and Tremain, and other photographs from the party on my Smugmug site:

The pictures I like the most are the ones above of folks dancing to a Merengue song named “Suavemente.”  The music and vocals of the song are in Spanish.

Everyone in party speaks English.  Many are Haitians, so a few speak Creole. Some speak French and I have no doubt a couple speak Spanish.

Our Money’s Worth

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

My grandson holds up a potted plant which Margo bought over 20 years ago when we lived in Cherry Hill NJ.  The plant refused to die and used every inch of dirt found in the small pot.  It was looking a little pale and limp, so we decided to transplant it to a larger pot.

The roots were in every nook and cranny of the animal like pot.  I had to break the pot just to remove the plant.

After over 20 years of use, we got our money’s worth.

When in France, do as the French.  Tell the garçon de café (French words for waiter) what you want to eat in French.

This is Margo while on a 2002 vacation at a restaurant located in a town call Rhonda.

Her hair was short at the time.

I like short hair:)

On a vacation trip to Bermuda, my daughter Jamila took this reenactment picture.  It seems, in the past, women who nagged or gossiped too much really caused the town to talk.

This Reminds Me Of Niagara Falls

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Photography by Maya David

That’s my grandson on the left in the above photograph.  It was taken on a trip to the Aquarium in Camden NJ.

It reminds me of a posed “candid” picture taken of his mother and the rest of our family during a trip to Niagara Falls, years ago.   Instead of a surf board, we were in a barrel “going over” the Falls.

Not In The Zoo

ape

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

This was taken during a 2002 vacation to Spain and Portugal.  The “apes” are actually monkeys which live on the Rock of Gibraltar.  They have freedom of movement atop this Rock  and move freely on pathways used by tourists.  Mother and child were about 4 feet from me as picture was taken.

Check the Wikipedia.com page for more information:

The Barbary Macaque population in Gibraltar is the only one in the whole of the European continent, and, unlike that of North Africa, it is thriving. At present there are some 300 animals in five troupes occupying the area of the Upper Rock, though occasional forays into the town may result in damage to personal property.[1] Moreover, three Barbary Macaque females can be seen on the Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park in Gibraltar. As they are a tailless species, they are also known locally as Barbary Apes or Rock Apes, despite the fact that they are monkeys (Macaca sylvanus)…

Me And Mrs. Dash

Mrs. Dash salt substitute

Photography by E.W. Faircloth

According to  Wikipedia.com :

“Me and Mrs. Jones” is a soul song written by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. It describes an extramarital affair between a man and his lover, Mrs. Jones. It has been recorded by Billy Paul and Michael Bublé, among others.

My new diet is low fat, and low salt.  So now it’s “me and Mrs. Dash.”  We’ve got a thing going on.

Margo knows all about it:)
