I made a promise – Please help me keep it

As some of you may or may not know I am a grandmother, abuelita, nana to Frick and Frack, aka Trey and Makayla.  They love the fact that we send them toys, tee shirts from wherever we’ve traveled, and as of late they are loving getting monetary gifts.  Oh dear they are growing up; currently they are clocking in at 10 and 8.  But I promised them that I would give them something to take to elementary school for social studies that would knock the socks off of anything that any of their classmates could ever come up with.  Did I happen to mention I’m a bit competitive too 😉  So this is where you wonderful readers come in to play.

I need your help!!!  The project is to get as many of you to respond to this post in the comments section with these things:

Your name (first name only or just your initials) – your city/town/province/wherever and country – your native language – and how you say hello.


Teri – Ohio, USA – English – Hello

Please please help me with this project for the grands and lets blow their teachers and classmates minds with how wonderful the world is…and how awesomely cool their grandmother is 🙂

Thank you so much


ps. If you have friends who are from other countries feel free to ask them if they would like to help.
