"Aye, a reckon a can," sez t'jeweller.  Does tha want it eighteen carat?".
"Noa," sez t'bloke, " a'll 'ave it chewin' a bone."
Gave me a laugh and a good start to the day!

Just stick to talking to the cabbies adiewoo, never heard them come out with innit when I was last down there in 06, nor did I hear the stereotypical sentence 'you'll never guess who I had in the back of my cab last week'

Re: A story for Yorkshire folk

I must admit it definitely wasn't a cheap trip but the tube is not really that practical when using a chair nor do I fancy being underground (have been on the tube when I was younger)
It wasn't a pleasure trip neither as I was going to Moorfields but I am going to save up, go down for a week and do all the tourist bits as I like the smoke (I was born there after all) as much as I like Yorkshire but for different reasons obviously.
Apologies to poppy by the way, that was very amusing.

I love the Yorkshire story - but a carrot actually would be more suitable for Holly - she likes them  and she does not get bones!

Re: A story for Yorkshire folk

I used to work in London, commuting from South Yorkshire. My pet hate was the phrase 'innit', used by many of my patients and colleagues. My (then less than teenage) daughter overheard me saying this to my wife and piped up: "It's not 'innit', its 'int'it'". Wink
