As you can see Barney is having a busy day....the remote lays near his front legs..
Grandson Tom came round yesterday, and took me for a drive....Amber my g.g.daughter sat in the back seat...
From the time we left home she did not stop talking...and I noticed some of the expressions she was using.
Bear in mind she does watch childrens TV on sky and lots of these come from the U.S.A.
Nappies are now Diapers...Rubbish is now Trash or Garbage...Tomato's are now Tomaytoes.....Garage with a total American twang.
The thing that struck me the most is when she speaks she actually sounds American...
Maybe it has something to do with ancestry - as Tom my Grandson is a decendant of The Pilgrim Fathers (on his other Grandmothers side her name was Norris before she married - and she is French). one of the people who comes to mind is Hetty Green, known as the worlds meanest woman...and also the name Grinell....it is all very interesting
