Oh Americans have some real beauts for slang. Does your bro come from the same hood?

Does your friend live in the same neighborhood?

Steve and I have just been out for a lovely walk in the sunshine

We walked for about 40 minutes, all around the lake, such a lovely area and we fed the ducks too

Most of our slang is a mix between English and Afrikaans. Most people speak both languages here. Luckily I understand them since Afrikaans is my frist language.
I know most Ausie slang too, I have a friend that was born in Australia.
I've learned most British and American slang too. I picked up a lot from clients when I was a Stock Broker.

We don't have the Howzit but the Howzat is used in the cricket I watch when its on. Cherry there is another meaning for that here but it aint girlfriend

Sometimes I have heard the word Chow being used for food but for goodbye its Ciao,which is an Italian greeting. Certainly you have lots of interesting words there though Snips

Oh,and Cheers Im using all the time.

I have just managed to clean out my shed and soon will be selling off some of the excess crap I have collected. Now though I must get on with printing out some pamphlets for work & answering numerous emails.

Do love popping in here in between my daily chores

Winding up to head to bed. Shopping day tomorrow. Out looking for the rest of Thanksgiving dinner. I'm also down to two days off this week because of the holiday and the boss is on vacation. I'll already be behind when I get to work on Monday, found an assessment that had been missed on the 14th.
