OK, so a quid is the same as a pound sterling. Like in the States when we call a dollar a buck. That came from the early days of America when a tanned deer skin was a medium of exchange. So a quantity of tobacco might cost one buck.
Just got done with Skype call with Gracie in London. What a breath of fresh air she is. So she filled me in on the quid thing being the same as a pound which also is the word for one chew of tobacco, according to the dictionary. Hmm. Also in Austraila they have the Austrailian dollar which has a pic of a kangaroo on it. Do they call it a Roo? Anyway, she is getting set up there getting her infastructure together to start her art history studies.
I am really excited about this Friday’s TGIF. Sherif has sent in a fantastic post. He has great insights and a great story. So we have that to look forward to.
OK! Had small birthday party for our son Wiley last night. it was the “Perfect Storm” with his gal Ginger and friends Josh, Jake, John Lars and Dominic. What a crew! He has turned twenty six and will be much smarter and wiser now. Love you man.
I was just reading up on some of the blog posts from September which are really awesome, if I do say so myself. So maybe if you haven’t been around for a while go back and start at the beginning of the September archive and read forward.
Well, have to get my day started. Let’s strive to keep the love alive! Yours, Felipe.
