Good Morning All, How nice to see some new ones on our site. Pat, Jacky & Grampa Jim. You are all most welcome. As I told Gerri if you want a laugh and you can take leg pulling this will be great. As our Faith has told you we do live all over the world, but we are still Brummies. Good morning our Jim, Hope you get into your den this morning, as we have some new friends. Will catch you all later. Tat Tar June.


Mommylonglegs Report 26 Nov 2004 09:00

Good morning all you Brummies. Just wondering if i qualify to join your mad house. Dad was born and bought up in Ward End. I was born and bought up in Staffordshire. I have been up here in the North East for seven years now. But have not lost my accent. Everyone here says I am a Brummie. I have a Walsall accent so I'm told. Feel a bit like a fish out of water with all these Geordie's. Love them to bits though, its a lovely place to live I get down to the Midlands to visit Daughters and Grandsons about six times a year. Will contribute to the party if you let me join. Jenny


June Report 26 Nov 2004 10:43

Good Morning Jenny, If you still have your accent WELCOME. I still have mine and I left Birmingham a number of years ago. Brenda. Not sure if you will be on MSN this morning. I cant stay onto long as I have to go out. Will try and catch you later. I made an error when I said Faith had said we live all over the world It was our Marge. Put it down to that I had not had my cuppa. LOL So I was not with it. ha ha. All for now Tat Tar June.

Hi Grampa Jim, Nice to see you back with us. I have kept your name as Grampa Jim. Only we have our Jim thats lives up in Warrington. He will be pleased to see an extra male on the site. I was born in Hockley. Lived in Aston, Lozells, Great Barr. But now in Leicestershire. Our Jim should be on soon, that is if his Mary has not locked his office up. But we call it his DEN. Catch you all later. Tat Tar June.


Pat Report 26 Nov 2004 14:30

My Mum and her Dad from Smethwick and all the rest are from West Bromwich, isnt that a true brummie when you are from West Bromwich or are brummies from all round Birmingham, I get myself confused, can someone answer me so I don't need to be confused about it, Please. Pat x


Chrissy Report 26 Nov 2004 14:34

My Hubby is a Brummie born and bred [and don't we know it]from the Maypole, and an avid blues supporter. GRAMPA JIM i used to do my shopping in Cotteridge and Northfield tho it's changed a bit since we lived up there in Kings Norton,we only lived there for 2 years when we came out of the RAF, afraid i didn't like it[ Brum that is] i am a Yorkshire girl come Devonian but we moved cos of hubby's job, tho until they died my in-laws lived at Quinton. One thing i will say in defence of Brum you have always had a fantastic city for shopping. Chrissy.

Hi all you Brummies, and of course Your Imperial Majesty June. Your Faithful swain is here ready to serve you.(Bow-Bow and Doff my hat). Pleased to see so many new comers on our new thread. Grampa Jim, You are specially welcome, I certainly need all the help I can get to keep all the girls under control. Rick does his best, but Jan keeps him on a tight rein(some hope) You will soon discover we are a mad lot and always keep things light. We try to be serious on occassions but it don't last for long. Anything can happen in Pantomime and with us. Jacky J Don't worry, my maternal family home was Third Avenue Small Heath, my grand father was a City Councillor before WW2, His name was Henry Johnson. My father was a Cockney and his family moved to Churchill Road Aston where I was born in 1932. So it seems we may have some things in common. Welcome to you. Chrissie My wife is a Yorkshire Lass And was a WAAF in WW2 I was in the Fleet Air Arm and Trained by the RAF at RAF Henlow Where I met my wife Mary Just remember every one You can take us out of Brum but you cannot take the Brum out of us. ENGLISH AND BRUMMIE and Proud to be so. LLOL to everyone. With Your Majesty's permission I will close For to-day, your Obedient servant (Grovel grovel) Sir(cur) Jim And His Lady Mary C.

Hi fellow Brummies, Just thought I'd pop in and say hello. I lived in Great Barr up until 7 years ago when I moved to near Barmouth, North Wales. Very popular holiday resort here with Brummies, there are more of us here than Welsh in the Summer! Katex
