A man from the south of France has declared himself satisfied after a court banned him from seeing his mother-in-law. The two fell out due to a fight over a can of beer.

"Fine, that works for me," said 39-year-old Fabien when the court in the southern town of Draguignon read out his sentence, French daily Var Matin reports.

Fabien whose last name was not reported in the French press was condemned to serve a suspended sentence of six months in jail. He was also told not to live with his mother-in-law anymore.

If only they had two cups to share the beer in two?

The beer, was the last straw I guess.

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

We had for some unexplainable reason a can of beer left here after midsummer. We gave it to our neighbor. chuckle.gif

I hope it wasn't one of those leftover Budweisers. No need to start a feud with the neighbors.

interesting is that "Yankees" is a Term derived from the French Trappers or dutch
anuciation of the Name : Jan Kees


Jan Keys was a Dutch Furrier who purchased Furs from french trappers.

his agents would come down from the Bay, south to purchase furs.

The French Trappers refered to them as Juan-kee's, because they worked for Jan Keys

which to the English ear sounded like Yan-kees.

the term stuck

and about 130 years later

the term was used during the Civil War By French descended
Louisiana Confederate Soildiers..

Ergo the phrase : Yankees and rebels, for the southerners were in Rebelion against
the Intrusive laws of an Industrialist Backed Northern Government.


WHEW!


I THINK i got this right to some degree

but quote me anyway
