July 19th entry: Hatcher

I will tell the truth, and nothing but the truth. Well, my truth. There are good things about Paris, which are pro, and bad things about Paris,which are con. 1st is the weather of Paris. In OKC it's hot and dry and everybody hated it there. However, in Paris it is nice and cool about 65 F which is a huge pro. But it rained all day long, so thet means the we were nice, cool and soaked. 2nd, are the people in France. The weird thing is that no one smiles in France. So it seems that they are hateful people. No,wrong, our guide said to us that you smile a little when you meet someone but not a lot because of some France thing a bobber I didn't hear. But if you say a few French words( like hello in French) they are nice and very kind to anybody. So all and all no one has lost anything(yet), no fights, no hurt feeling and everyone is as happy as they can be. -Hatcher Matheny

Well, Hatcher, you are learning a life long lesson. Put a smile on your face, make attempts to speak the language of the country you are visiting and do not be loud and boisterous, trying to show off. Oklahoman's are dying here at home, in this heat, so enjoy that rain, actually, you should go out and play in the rain, that's what I would do! Thank you for the great Blog and a few of your impressions. I'm very excited about hearing all things you saw and did, on your trip, when you get back home. Love you, Granma

Cousin Shay wants to know if you found a Thimble for her Mother yet? Granma let the "cat out of the bag" accidently when everybody was here for lunch last Thursday. I hope you are taking lots of pictures to show Granma and me when you get home! Love, Granpa

Your Grandmother Matheny let us know about your trip. Must be a proud Grandmother.
So glad you are on this trip.They have so much more history than America.
It is nice to see how other people outside America do things. You might notice many Europeans use their fork differently. They do not switch their fork to the right hand to eat.
You will have pictures and stories for a lifetime.

The blog from Grandmother Matheny above is good. Treat the people like real people and your visit will be enjoyable. The Europeans have had English in school, but nervous to use it. Try their language and they will try English.

Have loads of fun fun, learn a lot, and be careful.
