          I LOVE THIS BIG BEAR ! Its 10pm here (home from an Evening Clinic) so my Working Week is OVER ! I'll send you a bottle of GRECIAN 2000 at least youre not going BALD like so many overworked MEN ! My MUM (who is English) uses some of those words : especially DUNGAREES ! Her MUM was a Land Army Girl. Words come & go but the naughty words like BU**ER remain AUSSIES use a lot of expletives more so than KIWIS and the MAORIS have a word for everything ! My fave was FLOPPY DISC as a lot of my Clients have back problems ! Muchos ABRAZOS y BESOS con Amor al la distancia :
          Vostra ANGELA🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

            Thanks ANGEL ~ You must appreciate that ALL TEACHERS are GREY by the time we are 35. Pleased you enjoyed the Words & My Definitions. Yes I've noticed AUSSIES tend to swear more the the KIWI's I always say CANADIANS are civilised Americans & KIWIS civilised Aussies ~ but dont tell anyone I said it ! Abrazos y Besos con todo de mi AMOR ~ BRIAN ~ BIG BEAR

            I don't know about senior words. But some things that make me feel old, is I was talking to someone I'm close to, and we were talking about VHS, Cassette Tapes, computer games on Floppy Disks, and Vinyl Records and his little brother didn't know what any of that was! I almost fainted! This was entertaining to read, however. I loved the impromptu definitions.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              THANKS CALI ~ Pleased you enjoyed it ! Words related to TECHNOLOGY go out of Fashion very quickly. Yours BRIAN (UK)

              Hey these were funny!! I can think of "senior sayings" but not more senior words. Great job!

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                HOLA CHRIS ~ I will check your Poem. Ive been on the Coast at he weekend checking on coastal erosion. Nice to hear from YOU pleased you liked the definitions. WE have lots of quaint (outmoded) expressions for "Ladies with Child" such as "Up the Duff" "Bun in the Oven" etc don't know if you used those in the USA ? On a more serious not we were all delighted the DEMOCRATS have taken the HOUSE of REPRESENTATIVES which should put the brakes (through Checks & Balances) on some of TRUMPS wilder schemes like the MEXICO WALL etc ! Yours as always Abrazos y Besos ~ Tu Hermano BRIAN

                • Christina8

                  We say "Bun in the oven" though expectant moms can be pretty sensitive to those things!
