I'm In Duluth, Doloriuth!

Is it just me or is Duluth the funniest name ever for a city?  Anyways, when we first got here, I thought it rather mean of Rosetta Stone to send us to such a state.  It looked rather cold and gloomy, and I thought everyone would be angry (whenever we go to Michigan, which is cold and gloomy, half the population looks like they forgot their morning cup of caffeine and they don’t plan on being good-natured any time soon).

But I’m actually enjoying myself here and everyone is extremely friendly, and their accent is charming.  I keep slipping into it as I talk.  I should have known everyone would be like that, because the wonderful Mrs. Johnston is from MN and she’s VERY VERY friendly and enthusiastic.  So yes, thumbs up to Minnesota.  I’d hate to live here, but I’m sure glad you’ve welcomed us so heartily.

And, as an extra bonus — we are actually making money!  And it’s pretty easy!   Just tiring.  And if I have to demonstrate lesson 1 in Rosetta Stone spanish again, I think I’ll go crazy.  Maybe I’ll try French tomorrow, because I’ve actually been catching on to it while others try it.

Golly, I like this gig.

    Isn't Duluth a cool place? Ja sure, you betcha. Mr A and I honeymooned there 22 years ago and we visit there whenever we're in Mn, my home state. Glad to hear the folks were so obliging! When are you coming to Fl to visit us?

    Hey Coie! It's been forever since I've been over here, I know. It's been forever since I've seen you, too! How have you been?

    Hope you're having fun speaking various languages…just don't try to speak French with a Spanish accent, please! 🙂

    Love,

    Briana
