Bootiful !

Maurice went off to work about eleven ,fifteen today,so I didnt turn the computer on until about eleven thirty.Didnt I do well?In my mind I pronounced ,computer~compooter,which is how a girl I worked with used to say it,Now at the court I worked at was a dear old Norfolk gentleman,he is actually ninety six ,with his wife who is ninetyone,I was visiting one day when I explained to them I had to do a reading of some form or other to add to the afternoons entertainment,and wanted something abit different,so he wrote out a little something and rehearsed me,I dont know how its going to work ,but worth a try,with apologies to the Norfolk dialect!!!!   Think Bernard Matthews!!

Beast of Burden~          A  Norfolk lad,who had been promised a baby or sister for his birthday said to his Mum....If that dunt make yew too big,oied like a shetland pony anorl,

         "Good mans smell"                   A true story from Norfolk?In the days before mains water.A lad was sent home from school,with a note demanding, that he was washed!!the indignant Mother sent him back with this written reply~Dear Miss,yew hev sent our Billy hume,corse yew say he smell.Well let me tell yew, I send him to school to be larnt not smelt .Ennyway he smell just like his farther smell,But there yew bein an ol maid,Idunt spoose,new what a gud man smell like!!!!!

Did it work ? Well it went down well with the ladies and gentlemen on our afternoons,entertainment,Thanks, I think to Bernies tuition of his dialect,And there was you all thinking sheltered housing management was all care plans ,angina attacks ,and liasing with all sorts of relavent medical agencies.

             Hev a gud day folks   Jan xx

Lolol, rofl.  I love the Norfolk accent and you wrote it so well. Poor Becky though hated it when at work and had to deal with the Norfolk office.  She hated them saying compooter!

Thing is with you Jan you can say the accent as well as write it. There must be something good about the Norfolk air for that  Gentleman. and his wife to have lived to those ripe old ages. Have a good weekend, we have Dan and Maisie to night. Love Jeanx
