Advice from Blue

Hi everyone

Blue here again – 84 has now been entrusted to make sure that I make it to the coach on Saturday when we all depart for the Jamboree. Mum84 is a bit worried that I’m going to be left behind and she’ll have to entertain me for the next three weeks or even worse be responsible for ‘shipping’ me!

One thing that 84 hasn’t mentioned is the American language, they might speak ‘English’ but the American version is very different.

I’ve decided to list the most important things to help 84 and anyone else venturing across the pond this summer.

TapFaucet
TorchFlashlight
ToiletsRestroom
TrousersPants
WoggleSlide
PavementSidewalk

Other things with no direct equivalent are proper ‘Full English’ bacon, squash (the drink) and Christmas crackers!

Another thing to remember is spelling, but that’s a whole other blog post …
