Keeping the Brits out, tut

You said I could be an honorary Aussie, so obviuosly you can't mean me.

I just had an email from an Aussie friend who was in Bah humbug mood, just because they didn't win some cricket match or other!

Ok Linda - I forgot I said you could be an honorary Aussie. What cricket match would that be I wonder?

Sue xx

North Yorkshire is indeed a lovely area of the country, (I have pm'd you my exact location). The whole of Yorkshire is indeed God's own county. My OH was so proud of his Yorkshire roots, he was horrified when I did his tree and discovered that his ancestors all came from down south, Berkshire to be exact, I don't think he has ever gotten over the shock

I can understand that Linda. My mum thought she was a West Yorkshire girl through and through and was so proud of it. I discovered that her maternal line was from Devon and her grandmother was born in London. We went to the village where her great grandmother was born and she felt no connection at all. I did but I think that doing the family research gives you that connection.

Distant rellies have migrated to South Australia in the late 1800's and then nobody as far as I can see until Mum, Dad and little me arrived in 1956.

Ok another question my Aussie friends. Born here or migrated as a child or adult? I know Allan came over in 1982 but what about the rest of you.

Me, my parents and three grandparents were born in Australia. Fourth g/parent and earlier generations all born in England.

My OH was born in Liverpool and emigrated in his twenties, so our children are slightly more than 50% Pom.

Someones nicked our Tassie

Somebody's pinched Tasmania
Somebody's nicked our State
Some mongrel stole our Tassie
We want it right back...mate

It ain't there where we left it
Someones being smart
It was tied up to Victoria
It says so on our chart

Its shaped just like an apple
Its very hard ta miss
If we don't get our Tassie back
Weee'll chuck a hissy fit..O'i

It ain't there where we left it
Launceston or Hobart
It's part of our Orstraylia
It says so on our chart

An incee wincee country
If found a large reward
Someones gone and blahdy cut
Its Uummm....bill-likkle cord

Co's..It ain't there where we left it
a tied oop to our coast
n' when we git our hands on e'm

Someones nicked our Tassie
And i canny raise a smile

She's the Apple of our Isle.
