Latgaliski

Oduma babeņa stuosta: Šudiņ maņ ir dzimšonys dīna. Es, muna meita, juos veirs i muns unuks duorzā ādam torti. Gorda! Piec munys mamys receptis. Jei beja populara konditore. Bierneibā mes dzeivuojom Rēzeknē. Ūtruo pasauļa kara laikā emigriejom – vysupyrma iz Vuoceju, tod iz ASV. Muna meita ir veterinaruorste, i partū unuks struodoj zooduorzā. Gribēja tai – par tigru kūpieju! Tik beistams dorbs. Parkū na par gleznuotuoju kai juo tāvs… Jis niu vuicuos latgalīšu volūdu i daudz prosa par saimis viesturi. Es tik prīcojūs!

Odums’ grandmother says: Today is my birthday. My daughter, her husband, my grandson and I are eating cake in the garden. It’s tasty! Just like my mother’s recipe. She was a popular pastry chef. We lived in Rēzekne in my childhood. During World War II we emigrated – first to Germany, then to the USA. My daughter is a veterinarian and that’s why my grandson works in a zoo. He wanted this – to be a tiger keeper! Such a dangerous job. Why not a painter like his father… Now he is learning Latgalian and asks much about our family history. It makes me happy!
