Not as glad as I am!

Let me know if you want to trade that little wrench for an American made one similar.

Mais non, mon amie, je user Google translate bien!
I do still speak some French, but not well. It has been 40 years since I really used French on a regular basis. I read it sorta well, but j'nais pas le vocabulaire maintenot.
