Fontaine of information

met up with jj for one of our last times. :(

sat at a café and, what else, read some literature. this time i was introduced to the famous french writer jean de la fontaine, born in 1621. he is the most beloved french fable writer and so we read one of his well-know stories.

"La Laitière et Le Pot au Lait" (the dairywoman and the pot of milk, in english) is the story with the moral we know as: dont count your chickens before theyve hatched. when we have a place to start a library, im gonna need to have a small french section.
