Meet Peach!


The new addition to my little family finally has a name!
Variations on the theme:

Peaches
Beach Peach
Sweet "P"

The very same day I decided on "Peach" - the French Word-A-Day mailist to which I subscribe started thusly:

une pêche (pesh) noun, feminine
1. peach
2. fishing

Il faut perdre un vairon pour pêcher* un saumon.
One must lose a minnow to catch a salmon. --Janus Gruter

*pêcher (verb) = to fish for, to catch

And I just finished a sculpture entitled "Plenty of Fish."
Is that a sign or what?


Read a "peach" of a story - and then subscribe yourself to "French Word-A-Day" right here.
