I'm about a mile from the lions if you take the old road to Wednesbury from there.

Originally from Woodgreen in Wednesbury though.

That's in Great Bridge, Paul. See Nathan, he's never even been to Tipton :lol: :lol: :wink: .


Believe me, I have :shock: (Shocking for a delicate Halesown lad like me)

Something my dad told me: was drinking somewhere round Halesowen many moons ago and a couple of old Black Country chaps were talking and the one said to the other (having been asked where something was): "Bay be by be AA, bay be". (As in: they be by the AA, they be). (The AA HQ used to be in Halesowen, by the cricket club, btw).

Accent - always difficult. But put it this way: you're better off having a good, wholesome Black Country accent than picking up a Brummie one. And if that isn't cue for a flame by someone I don't know what is. :D :D :D (My mom's a brummie at heart anyway, so I'm allowed to say that ;) )

Forgot to say. If you're anywhere in the Black Country and you're unsure of what someone's said to you or what to say to someone, just say, 'R'. Depending on the intonation (and how long you maintain the 'r' for) this can mean anything from 'world crisis' through to 'I'd like an extra scallop with my chip please', although generally means either 'yes' or 'no'. (And no, I'm not joking). :)
