Back on deck again! Whilst sorting through some piles of old mags. and computer notes, thanks to this Covid crisis, I turned up a couple of interesting items in “This England Summer 2019.”
The Great Limerick Challenge;
A mobile phone user from Crewe
Found out on a trip to the Zoo
To pose for a Selfie
Is not really healthy
In a cage with a large kangaroo.
How about “Bongo Bingo”?
Millenial -friendly versions have not been popular amongst purists, especially when sexed up, e.g.88 (“two fat ladies”) is now “two body positive ladies” and is also becoming unpopular for its “lewd language and innuendo”!
Goodness me! What on earth is England coming to?
Could ask the same question here! 411 new cases and 21 deaths yesterday. Our “worst day” ever in terms of deaths, mainly in homes for the elderly.
NSW hotspots causing concern. NZ, having set a good example now have lockdown again, but apparently all because of one family outbreak; a forthcoming election probably has nothing to do with it, but it’s odd!
Grandmabatty sometime ago you were testing me on the Scotch language and challenged me with “neb” (I think!). Forgot the clue, but not weather you said!
In the aforementioned mag. is a ref. to a Yorkshire dictionary;
” Eeh, bufflehead, Yer brew’s mashin”!
“neb” a beak? Or is a Yorky neb different?
We were supposed to be having a TV prog. this evening about the Blitz-Liverpool, but no show.; instead Baldrick doing his English country walks instead.
Apparently there was no sequel to the trolley- rage incident in the fruit and vegie shop up there in Brisbane.; the lady who was “ordered” to back off and maintain “distance rules” put her hands in the air and backed off!
Btw; Doona problem solved!
