[must be a relative of mine] our native tongue was Olde Englishe
..then..after the Norman conquest in the shape of William the Conqueror
we spoke a mix of the two..
As..when the Normans arrived they didnt speak French either..
Great names in those days....like Tostin Godwinson and Silvestor The Stupid..I made that last one up..but there really was a Charles the Simple..Here ill show you him...

Ah, Olde Englishe... unfortunately, we acrosst the pond speak American, not English. It IS a different language. And here in Minnesoootta, we speak another language altogether: Ve be from Minnesoootta, don'cha know! Ya sure, you betcha.

Minnesotan combine Olde Englishe, American English, various Scandinavian dialects and mix well. It does sound surprisingly good to the ear even if hard to understand. Part of the fun of traveling is listening to all y'alls accents. Its even more fun to pick up bits and pieces and bring them home. The locals (fill in any region of North America) find it puzzling trying to figure out where I am from. LOL

The hardest 'American' I've ever tried to decipher is Cajun. Now that is TRULY a different dialect!

Agreed. I've watched the show about the alligator hunters in the swamp (Swamp People?), and thought subtitles would have been helpful!

Living in Canada, you'd have thought that my English (not British!) accent would be easily understood, but no, it isn't. I won't use drive-throughs here because I'm never sure what I'm going to end up with. Add to that the difference in vocabulary and sometimes I might as well be speaking Martian. Curiously, though, I'm more easily understood in the USA; who knew?

I drove up the motorway in treacherous rains...
but it was well worth it ..I Love travelling North or South or East or West
and each time we stop the dialect changes ever so slightly ..
We had the most wonderful of rests in the Leeds Museum Tea Rooms..
Next to.. were a family of 4 ..quite well off looking..stuffing themselves with cakes ..prettily cut sandwiches and all manner of fine drinks..
A poorly dressed lad approached..he must have been only 18 or so..
I was curious so stared..
He was asking the family of 4 for a penny or two..
and they just looked down..
He saw me looking and came over ..said he was hungry..
He was wet and his clothes were shabby..
we had not much money with us so we made our minds up ..
instead of 2 portions of Tomato and basil soup and 2 cups of coffee..
we would share and settle for one bowl and one drink between us ..
So that meant we had more than we needed..we emptied our pockets and gave him the pounds..After all..That was the decent thing to do..
He looked so poorly..I asked him if he had a roof over his head and he said he had..but was suffering from Aids and no-one would give him a job..he walked away.. my eyes followed him and rested on the people at the table with plenty of food ..and they were still staring down ..

We ate our soup drank our coffee..and on the way out..passed the people with plenty of fine food who were sitting back satisfied..
I asked if they enjoyed their meal and did they have enough..the main lady smiled and thanked me and said there was actually more than enough and could not eat every crumb..then it dawned on her and she changed to flushed pink when she saw no smile in return ..

Just had a thought...
After the boy left..
I should crept over to the table of 4 and said
"can we have your left overs as we've just given all our money
to that poor boy" ...

Even though it rained and rained..We didn't care a jot..
We had a loveliest of days in Yorkshire..
I just keep wondering where the boy is ..
its supper time now and he'll be hungry again

1982 24' AS motorhome

Having purchased at 24' Airstream almost 2 years ago (1982) I can tell you that parts are very hard to find. Ours is a 454 7.4 liter Chevy on a P30 chassis. When I was looking for this one I did test drive a 28' with an Isuzu diesel engine. I wanted a smaller one and jumped on this 24'. Airstream doesn't know it made a 24' in 1982.....but they did. Anyway, it has been an adventure. paula

Be sure use to the advanced query structure when using Google.com. In your case, type the following "site:craigslist.org airstream+motor* OR airstream motor home" and the returned results will be exclusively from the craigslist site.

Alternatively, you can also use searchcraigslist.org or onecraigs.com to view matching ads across all craigslist locations with a single query.

This page will allow you add more selection criteria like diesel to a Google search: Google Advanced Search.
