Desperate ABS Neighbors Learn a New Language


Welcome to the Desperate ABS Neighborhood! There's been a flurry of activity recently, new neighbors moving in and old friends moving out. With all the coming and going, the paparazzi don't take notice of an eye peering through a window.


Is it human? The paparazzi don't notice the eye but the neighbors do and they're worried they might not be able to speak the neighbor's language. She dropped this note on the street the other day:

The Desperate ABS Neighbors can't read it. They're off to their local community college to learn a new language - afterall, everyone in the Desperate ABS Neighborhood gossips over coffee, who cares which language you gossip in?!?

While the Desperate ABS Neighbors are learning a new language, let's see what other gossip is going on in the Bead Blogging World....

You are sly, Melissa and clever! Eluding the paparazzi and ingratiating yourself into the neighborhood! How does she do it?! Stay away from the paparazzi, they're no good but join the neighbors for coffee and gossip! :-)

What a fun blog! I enjoyed exploring it and would like to link to my blog, if you'd like. I make ceramic beads, and love seeing other people's creations.
