We have found the people of north east to be very warm and welcoming. We enjoy our walks each week to visit the Crusty Bun. Lynn and Kate have become good friends. They enjoy hearing about the southern US as much as we enjoy hearing about history, traditions and words of north England.
This past trip to the Crusty Bun we brought along two gifts. A dear friend and neighbour in Alabama sent us a care package. You may have read about the wonderful things inside on an earlier post. In the box from home were two special things with beautiful southern charm. One for Lynn and one for Kate. We were so excited to bring those to them.
We visited for a bit and they gave us new Geordie words. The Geordie word for sandwich is “sarhnee” or “buttie”. We hear people come in and say that when they are ordering. After visiting a bit more we gave them their gifts.
Not sure if that picture is close enough to read what they say……
They loved them. 🙂
We are grateful for our friends near and far. New friends and old friends.
I am reminded of a sweet song from my girl scout days.
Make new Friends
but keep the old
one is silver
and the other is gold.
Blessings….all of them….
