Vinte anos mais tarde, ela é a melhor motorista de Renault de Adelaïde.


Even though she does not speak Portugese, my beautiful, little-est daughter will remember her "exitador" days in Adelaide, but not much of her wonderful Grandfather who loved her. Here, they both are together for only a very short time. London is so far away and we miss you, Sweetheart.

Ahh, very touching, M. Benaut. What a beauty she is! Wish i were in London i'd go and have tea with her and take lots of shots for you!!

Kate said...

Oh, what a tender, loving moment to capture!Grandfather looks mesmerized!

Monica said...

M.Benaut how cute is this picture?!?! Oh those cheeks!

20 years later she is ´excitador´? What do you mean by it? I´m not sure so I prefer you tell me what you meant. That´s the one word I didn´t get. The rest is correct!
Just remember not ´est´, the word you´re looking for is "é"

Monica,
I was trying to say, "The best Renault motor car driver in Adelaide".
"Oh, those cheeks", her Grandpa used to call her, 'little chubby cheeks'.
Kate,
He was mesmerized too, as we all were. A wonderful grandfather.
Lynn,
That would be 'devoutly to be wished'. When you visit us here in Adelaide you will see where, and how my 4 children grew up. They now live in London, Basel, Munich and Sydney.

Oh, so you could have written "vinte anos mais tarde, ela é a melhor motorista de Renault de Adelaide" !

The more I look at this picture the more touched I am by it!

Olivier,
Cette photo a été prise en 1979 alors que ma petite jeune fille est née et son cher grand-père est mort très peu ensuite. Il était un homme merveilleux.
Monica,
Merci également de vos mots très gentils.

Wonderful portrait, one to cherish!

On a totally different topic, of course we'd love to see your 1965 photo of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and you don't need our permission for that! Hey, I don't own the bridge. LOL!

Monica said...

M.Benaut, I'm so proud of you!!!!

:-)

AMB: your incredible help in setting up ADP, has allowed your Papa to send you his love - every day. I send mine too Sweetheart. Hope all is well in London. This is a particularly lovely and loving photo for both you and IB to cherish.

I have a similar picture with a grandfather who I don't remember. I love hearing the stories about how much he loved me, though.

Terroni said...

Mme Benaut - Thank you so much for visiting me. I will cherish your comment, and I am so sorry for your losses.
