Answer: When your Frank says "Tighten your seat belt, Sweetcakes, cos we just crossed into Wales".
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile That too! smile
Where sufferers of dyslexia can go crazy! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: A little sympathy for the challenged!
i see that you took advantage of your time in Wales Elizabeth... the signs do get confusing... it was the same in Ireland... where there were Gallic counties that spoke only Irish... their name for the language....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That must have been amazing, Peter!

I remember some year ago when my middle son, who was a manager for a chain store, opened a new shop in a Welsh town, all the signs had to be in Welsh FIRST
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think that's great! Preserving the native language!

I find it wonderful to have two languages in Wales, and I know already a handful of words, for example 'afar' and Rwy´n dy garu di!
Llan means church place.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Good for you Philine!! I can't even guess how to pronounce these!
by the time the stuff actually registers in my mind, the vehicle would have advanced these signs!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: RIGHT!!! smile

I think that this one the 'world's funniest language ' award E.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think you're right!
Does gen i ddim syniad. Nid yw'r un o'r arwyddion yn gwneud unrhyw synnwyr
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Good one Bill!!!! I put it into Google Translate so I could have it vocalize and had a good laugh at the computer voice rendition!
I used to go to Ffynnongroyw regularly as I had a very good Play equipment customer who had there office and workshop in an old chapel
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: No kidding! Amazing
I feel like being in Brittany Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Brittany is beautiful!
Amazing to have all the double letters. Do they speak like they are stuttering? (grin)
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I never heard anyone speak it, Mary! But I can only imagine!
Haha, I can speak English, but this...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You're doing better than me - I can barely speak English, and that's all!

I mean 'won' not 'one' of course.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh of course! smile
It's great they have both languages on their signs otherwise one wouldn't know which way to go. I can actually say that longest welsh word Llanfair­pwllgwyn­gyllgo­gery­chwyrn­drobwll­llanty­silio­gogo­goch my Granny taught it to me, although to my knowledge she wasn't in any way a Welsh person.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I would LOVE to hear you say that word!
I think they're just making stuff up... smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I completely agree!
hahaha nice one Elizabeth..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Aderonke!
I don't think I realized Whales wasn't English.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I didn't either!
