Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



200 Percent French

While driving in Amarillo today, or rather, stuck at a traffic light on Western Street, I see this bakery that brags on the front store sign that it is the only French bakery in Amarillo (1923 S Western). Then I look up to see that the name of the place is Frank's Bakery, and then I faintly recall that the Franks were the name of a people that occupied part of Europe a long long time ago, (and I later confirm that the name "France" means "Land of the Franks") and so I let my wife know that piece of information about the Frank-French Connection, and I ask her, I wonder if Frank knows that 'Frank' means 'French'? And would it be okay if I ask him if he knows (now, keep in mind that I work very hard to try to trick my wife with practical jokes ALL the time and that I have absolutely no plans to ask some stranger about the etymology of his name, and that he has really named his place 'French Bakery, French Bakery' and of course its the only French bakery in Amarillo because, for instance if some French man named Germ opened a French bakery, then it would be a Germ-man Bakery). Her simple response was a grin, giggle and a "No, you may not ask him, and the light is now green".

So Frank, if you are out there reading this right now, 'did you know?'

(Don't worry, my wife never reads this stuff)
