Thanks folks - good to hear some of you are daft too - Why do fellas think of their barrows as female????

I would like to post a pic of ´Eric´ but haven´t a clue how - any help available - he is on floppy as wallpaper.

Welcome Foxy, glad you found this site!
Gosh, the English language is sure colorful. If you don´t mind, just what is a "barrow?"
I mean, I use a wheelbarrow to move topsoil and mulch all the time, but I never thought of giving it a nickname of either gender.
If you want to post some pics, I know you need to create an album in "Car Showcase," and then you can follow the instructions and download your pictures to that. Before you do it though, you may need to resize them so they aren´t too large a file.
Hope this helps!

2redscorts - Having read these sites, I think N.Am language is far more "colourful" than UK English!!!!

A barrow or ´barrer´ in cockney dialect, is an affectionate nickname for ones pride and joy!

My previous car was a Vauxhall Astra Estate and was usually full of similar substances to that found in a wheelbarrow, in my case from the stableyard - incidentally, ´her´ name was trundle, because that´s what she did!

Thank´s for the info regarding posting pics, will have a go.
