But imagine my surprise when
I was shown a translator-type book
from Yorkshire to English! Yorkshire
is a large county in northern England,
where English was invented!
As they have their own language,
I thought I’d give you some examples
of some words and their meanings:
1. Tintintin - it isn’t in the tin
2. Fortyleg -centipede
3. Flibberty gibbet - chatterbox
4. Gob slotch - glutton
5. Jock - lunch/food
6. Muck lather - sweat
7. Ocker - hesitate
8. Powfagged - very tired
9. Sitha - excuse me
and lucky last:
10. Ugger mugger - panic
See if you can get the gist of this.
Sitha, a reet ding dong sen ’t
powfagged gob slotch int’ a muck
lather ‘n ‘t ugger mugger.
Aye, I nivver met such a flibberty
gibbet gormless rapscallion who
din’t ocker, o’er the jock.

rard, a reet clogger.

Now we have Pinery’s John
Tiller, who took our advice and
drove a racy red Mazda MX5 in
the Six-hour Regularity Relay at
Winton motor raceway in NSW
on October 19-20.
He drove with his nephew,
Anthony Verner of Redbanks,
who drove a yellow LX Torana,
and the pair were the only SA
team in the relay.
Being red obviously helped,
as John improved one position
from last year, coming 13th of
41, which was a great effort.
At this rate, in another 12
years, you’ll be the winner,
Louise riding high
LOUISE Sanders was thrilled to win
VIP passes to Cavalia, the amazing horse
show – a mix of equestrian, performing
arts, multimedia and special effects.
As part of the package, Louise enjoyed
a meal, and meet and greet with some
of the performers (humans, that is). The
show was a wonderful
birthday present for
Louise, who celebrated
on November 3.
And local farmer,
Kev Simon, recently
celebrated his 50th
birthday! Hard to be-
lieve as he doesn’t look
a day over 40!
Joel Prime (of Prime’s Beach), has
visited the Dublin History Group’s
Research Centre on two occasions
to look for information and photo-
graphs about his ancestors, and was
successful. He is now looking for
photographs and documentation of
the Malakoff school, which is where
the Lomman children were students.
As many of the other students
have sadly passed away, obtaining
information has proven difficult.
Dennis is wondering if anyone
has any photographs or documenta-
tion about the school they would be
willing to share with him.

n A local bachelor recently said
women liked a beard, to which I
replied he obviously didn’t read
my Take 5 story on Pash Rash fears
(October 2.) This grease monkey is
sporting a beard, albeit quite a tidy
one at this stage, but I told him he’d
better shave it off as most women
would rather not get a prickly “pash
rash.” He said he would, if the need
arose. Hello, now there’s an offer
most couldn’t refuse! So you single
girls, suss out this man and see if he’ll
shave off his beard, specially for you!

Can be distressing after the death of someone
we love. Think about what YOU really want over
Christmas. Write it down and discuss it. Try shopping
on ‘good’ days. Not sending Christmas cards is OK.
