...Until We Meet Again

Well, this is it:  the very last post of the semester and of 2014.
The idioms we've had the past couple of weeks are:
  • to be snowed under
  • to work your fingers to the bone
  • to bring home the bacon
  • to be a number cruncher
We had these tongue twisters (

           Four furious friends fought for the phone.

            There was a young fisher named Fischer
            Who fished for a fish in a fissure.
            The fish with a grin,
            Pulled the fisherman in;
            Now they’re fishing the fissure for Fischer.
            Freshly fried flying fish

             Freshly fried fresh flesh

            A flea and a fly flew up in a flue.
            Said the flea, “Let us fly!“
            Said the fly, “Let us flee!“
            So they flew through a flaw in the flue.
            Friendly Frank flips fine flapjacks
            Fat frogs flying past fast at five to five (4:55)

            Flee from fog to fight flu fast!

            Fred fed Ted bread, and Ted fed Fred bread.

            I am not the pheasant plucker, I’m the pheasant plucker’s mate. I am only 
            plucking pheasants ’cause the pheasant plucker’s running late.

  We talked a lot about punctuation.  If you want to practice go here.

Here are some words we learned.

Until then:  
And I wish all of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
