Library of Polish

I yearn for and am truly hungry for my trip to Poland. My true hearts desire is to go to Poland with my cousin in 2012.  I have dreamt about going to Poland throughout my entire life.  I can see myself going to Klobuck (southern Poland) and to Sztabin (northeastern Poland not far from Lithuania) where my ancestors lived. I see myself in Krakow trying to verbalize sentences from words I’ve learned and being totally tongue tied.

Through the years I’ve acquired a Polish dictionary, Learn to Speak Polish books, Speaking Polish tapes and my last addition was Rosetta Stone Polish.

 Inside, cartoonish characters showing examples.

As a youngster, I had no resources. While raising my children, I had barely enough to get by. Now all alone and retired, I have a no-touch savings account from which I spent years putting away my few extra pennies and dollars. So there it sits earning about a dollar a year in interest.

    You're certainly prepared for your trip with all those books, you just need to get your tongue around the words now. Fingers crossed that you manage the trip in 2012.
