Quote: "Sunny Jim"
Better than "Sonny Boy" though, even if skies are grey! )
When I was a kid the term
was pretty popular...
vilage life in lancshire was odd though
more cows than people where I'm from
You think life in Clitheroe was odd? My kneck of the woods, Hapton, is a lot closer to the Yorkshire border - almost sheep country.
**** (without the sparrow) was the term I remember too.
and there was "cocker" too...
Used to know a bloke from there, but farm on the hill, he was called "Ernie", used to keep pigs and sell far and bones.
Can't remember his surname - but they were loaded and smelled of pigs most the time.
Must have been before my time ****. You look a bit older than me. Don't remember many pigs - mostly cows and sheep............. and rain, rain and more rain.

That'd be the 1930s lol
my dad wasn't a twinkle in his dad's eye then though.
BUT BUT BUT....
the village I'm from is still in the 30's!!! 1830's!
Slightly off topic as this refers to what people call other people. In North Somerset, every local name is prefixed with Arr. e.g. Arr Joss, Arr Clive. Haven't come across a Saul in North Somerset . . .
Quote: Down here in Dorset the greeting seems to be; "Allroit moi luverrrr".
Well that's how the farmer's wife in the end cottage greets me anyway...
She doesn't come from Dorset then, thats Devon or Cornish..moy luvver are you sure she doesnt say... that grockle, he's back agin look
Never notice anything here in Cheltenham - all too flipping posh (or think they are) to use pet names.
when I was livin in Newcastle it was mate, mukka or mista
now here in brasil its cara, bruder or veglio ,but with a lot of the surfers they get so stoned they cant even speak so its a nod or a hand shake!!
