Life in the lockdown
is boring.
Wouldn't it be good
to go out.
Dictionary pages
I'm reading.
Already I've learned
next to nowt.

    • πŸ™‚ When I was a boy I used to read books of my gran’s which were written in Yorkshire dialect. They would have been near impossible to understand for a non-Tyke. I have toyed with the idea of writing something in dialect, but it would be difficult for readers to get their head round.
      It worked for Rabbie Burns though, dinntit!

      • I liked the one about Brunel, that was brilliant. But if you did the dictionary as well you could flog that as a companion book to the poems…

      • πŸ˜‚ That one was written in proper English! (Only kidding! )
        As for flogging, I have never flogged anything. The only thing I have had published since being a kid was my M.Ed. dissertation. That was a riveting read I can tell you! Funnily enough, I was wondering if any of my stuff would be good enough to publish. I need to write a lot more I think before I go down that road! Thanks for the dictionary suggestion though. I might add it as a page to my blog.πŸ™‚

      • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Maybe!
        Me and Dauphy are quite content at the moment….We derive a lot of pleasure from making people laugh, and occasionally think!

  1. I remember trying to read ‘Trainspotting’ just before the film came out but found the language unintelligible UNTIL I read a collection of Irvine Welsh’s stories also in dialect but I could just cope with that so when I went back to the novel I read it all in a few nights. It was a most exhilarating [my fourth attempt at spelling that word correctly] experience πŸ™‚

    • πŸ™‚ I struggled with other dialects because of my deafness. My new hearing aids help a lot, and I’ve now joined the Bluetooth generation!

      • Fine wines, fine cheese. (And a great burger and a cold brew. Make mine Irish and a properly prepared Porterhouse. Maybe a Caesar salad with lots of Parmesan and anchovy. )

      • Market down (or “up” never figured that one out) the street is open. Purveyor of fine meats and other delicacies. I’ll pop down and get another for company. I can do three as quickly as two. Or four, bring Mrs. PM Hobbo. Firing-up the grill at 5PM. Steaks on at about 5:30. Tell Dauphy there’ll be B-O-N-E-S with like as not residual scraps of M-E-A-T to gnaw. Sadly Clutch is but a figment, but there are rabbits in and out of the back yard so entertainment is provided until B-O-N-E-S are relinquished for inspection.

      • Excellent news. We’re on our way. Oh shit! Forgot we’re in lockdown. Another day maybe? Or another year! Who knows?
