Je t'aime Bonhomme....wait that doesn't make sense, does it?

Good question...Je l'aime Bonhomme??? Been a long time since I thought about French!

Any pics of you skating with him? Sounds like a Wall of Fame shot to me! dance.gif

Great shot (despite the unknown lady)! But I had forgotten how big the "good man" was ..... or are you just quite short? unsure.gif

Do you also realize that woman has probably shown the same picture to her friends and added the comment "but I don't know who that lady is on the left!" ..... lol!

Haha yeah, as I was writing that, the exact same thought crossed my mind actually.

Yes, I am short, about 5'3'' or 5'4''...*tear*...but Bonhomme is ginormous!
