The Queen and Sir David - SherylC

Closing down for the night now as the documentary of the Queen and Sir David Attenborough's Canopy walk around the Queen's garden will be starting on tv shortly.

Apparently it is full of good humour and probably the Queen at her best. Would recommend watching it if you can.

I'll keep watch to see if it happens to play over here.  I'm sure I would like it.  Maybe I can get Teejay to translate for me!   :laugh1: :laugh1:

I think you would like it MaryLou.  It's quite funny in parts. Both parties have a great sense of humour. Not sure what Teejay's translation would be!  :lol05:

I know you guys probably think I'm just kidding but honest, I'm not.  I have a very difficult time understanding people who have a different accent. I suspect it may be because I'm a bit hard of hearing to start with and when words are not said the way my ears expect to hear them, they don't translate.

I love some of the English movies but I struggle with trying to figure out what's going on.  Some, I just give up on and others, I can tell by the acting what's happening.

Many years ago, I had a pen pal (prior to computers) and she lived in London.  I always had trouble trying to interpret her letters.  She wrote in her accent. Instead of writing "he", she would write "eh".    Then, of course, there were the strange words, loo, trolly tram, and a few more. Actually it was fun because she didn't understand me either so we sent a lot of pictures back and forth!

I will watch for the show to come on BBC - would love to see it.   :yay:
