It is a very nice topic, great to see some smiles!

Incidents such as this remind me how rubbish I am at considering emotional contexts and at using my imagination more when keywording. 'Smile' brought up six images out of thirty-odd thousand! 'Happy' a handful more. I have much to learn.

I'm not trying to curry favour, Jorge, but perhaps you should know that I'm one of the few Anglo-Irish folks who can pronounce your name correctly. I had a friend in Port d'Andratx with that name. I practiced and practiced until I was threatened with a major throat operation. In the end, we settled on calling him George. But doctors allowed me to say 'Jorge' once a month.

Could you spell 'Jorge' phonetically?

Sorry about this, but it's "whore gay." As Ed says we don't really have the guttural "h" in English. Unless we have a cold.

That is 100% true but as far as I can see in the Terms Of Reference of how to run the Monthly Challenge the correct pronunciation of the organiser name does not give a extra point/advantage respect to others. 🙂. Maybe in the next 2022 Alamy Month Challenge Congress in Las Vegas we can discuss to amend those TORs.

Well . . . if that's going to be your attitude, GEORGE!!! 🤨

 

Jean-François? Sure, a piece of cake. Or crème brûlée. My daughter in law in Quebec is part of an original beaver-trapping family. And that's her brother's name. 😀

My best phrase in French is a thing of linguistic beauty —— the tone, the accent, the pop. Je ne parle pas français. There's no mistake in what I'm saying.

 

A bribe? Hmm. There are people who will do anything for a snack but I accept no blame for that.

Are you happy that I can close this challenge the 29th at 23.59, Spanish time?

 

The reason is that I prefer to finish this year with the nightmare of selecting the final 8 instead of entering the new year with that task. I am not superstitious, only just in case. I would like to start the 2022 without that BIG problem. Thank you for your understanding. 😉

No objection from me. December is a special month.

You're the boss, you get to call the shots.  No problem.
