Kerry and Georganna, what prose (oops) pro’s you are.  I think your ears would burn had you grown up in Milwaukee with all of it’s German, Italian, Polish, and Irish immigrants.  What a mish-mosh with sayings such as:

Bubbler–water fountain

tree–three

doze–those

just to mention a few.

But my all-time favorite:

You take da streetcar round da bend by Shusters, ta get ya ta terd street. 

No kidding, I heard that actually said by a great aunt when I was ten and never forgot it.  I’m so glad I’ve improved since then….maybe, but even at my age I can still learn.
