Think of Cockney-Think East End


Pub in East End

Some of you do not follow me on Twitter, which prompted me to post these to my blog.  Just so that you can see what I’ve been up to.  You’re wondering what this is?  Every morning, I post  quotes on Twitter, and during the Olympics I decided to post some Cockney Rhymes in honor of the games.  So, for the entire two weeks, each morning, I came up with some sentences, just for the hay.  Take a look see and let me know what you think.  It all proved quite challenging, but I did have a little help from my new buddy, Andrea Downing who is from New York, but has been living across the pond for many years, and who has recently returned to the land of her roots.  Thank you, Andrea, and feel free to take a cruise over to her site.
