  • Well I'm knackered.

    Last week I posted about getting the DRO as I was down that way.
    I was out collecting books and magazines. In fact I did two trips last week to collect some mags to save them being dumped.



    So today set too to sort and pack in volumes these Model Engineers. These are the volumes from the 1950's



    Bit blured as the lighting isn't great but these are the 1960's with a few 1970's sprinkled in, sat in the conservatory ready to be sorted.

    The 70's, 80's and 90's are still in the Donald until I can some room to sort them.

    Brain has gone into shutdown after sorting these first in decade, then volume, then issue order then duplicate copies, then catalogue them.

    It's far more fun reading them but I'm banned.

    Wow. I couldnt get all of those sorted WITHOUT reading them as I went. But that would make it 2010 before they were all sorted out.

    Good luck~

                Nope.

                He is "Sprecken die Anglo Englis".

                A lot of words in common use (by "common" people?) in OZ are derived from or directly from "English as she is spoke" in the UK.

                Just as well John didn't say he had been "de-knackered" or "back from the knackery"!!!

                These links might help.

                http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._United_States

                from which are derived:
                knackered: (slang) exhausted, originally 'sexually exhausted', perhaps derived from knacker's yard

                knackers:
                (colloquial) testicles ("Ouch, she kicked me right in the knackers")

                knacker's yard
                premises where superannuated livestock are sent for rendering, etc. (glue factory). Sometimes refers to the same for vehicles, a scrapyard (US: junkyard)

                      AK, we each born into this miserable world are bound to die.

                      Some sooner than others, some happier than others. Some content with the manner in which they lived, others to go on and burn everlasting.

                      I hope all you outlive me, I hope I enjoy life a long time more.
                      Excuse me, I farted.

                              Well I am knackered

                              Of course, I was far from OT! In fact, I was recalling the language of one of the greatest engineers- the other Stephenson, George. He and his son built the first decent steam locomotive and a succession of bridges. I am never too sure about the 'Geordie' which was the miner's safety lamp ascribed to Davy.

                              Oddly, I was recalling the language spoken a mere mile from his cottage- and where I was born.

                              Kna's nowt like, daft bugga!
