I've been working diligently at my German and making pretty good progress, except I'm having a time of it with "Der", "Die", Das", the 3 forms of the word for "the". I don't mind that things are feminine, masculine or neuter, I'm use to that from Spanish. But give me a clue, Spanish does: if it ends in "a" it's feminine, if it ends in "o" it's masculine. There are exceptions, but not many.
German doesn't work that way and I've had to resort to making flash cards and memorizing the word with its "the". For example: das Essen, the food, note that food is neuter. die Biene, the bee, a bee is feminine, der Stuhl, the chair, a chair is masculine.
Favorite German word right now, bezahle, which means to pay. I just like the sound of it
Lots of rain last night, over an inch with lots of thunder and lightning. We needed the rain, but not the other. And of course it made a mess of the pool so I'll need to clean it up.
