  • Gotta ask.

    I certainly value the VFF . As foolish as it sounds , whats appropriate to call a person when thanking them for knowledge shared here? Thanks old man, young man , skipper ...here in the oldest British city in North America 1583 , St Johns Newfoundland , we have a language and dialect that even we don't understand. just would like to know whats appropriate .

    I would think that it’s the sentiment that counts. As long as you’re saying “thanks” it probably doesn’t matter if you use bloke, chap, mate, fella......

      Perry i think your onto something here. Maybe we can come up with our own VFF Thankyou slogan / lingo.
      Something like
      Vffffffff
      4~ Tudor's
      1~ Coupe

        I believe this will be a work in progess, I'll wait for K-Dad and Ed to chime in on this one.

              How many here, when seeing something or hearing something that you highly approve of say "Thank God!!!!!"? I once had a company commander, William D Georgia signed the company blackboard when he would post a msg "God" we all knew who it was, then of course the 1SG was Nicola P Niccolucci and he signed the board "Big Nick". I'd call Mitch 'God' but I know he can't walk on water like I can.

              My lady friends give their thanks in other ways but the one way I like the best is, instead of saying "thank you" they just say "you're the best!!!!".

              Here I usually say "thanks" whether it's or the truth, manners count.

                  Isn't it GREAT to communicate with faraway Folks, with different customs, dialect, etc? BUT, they're all just "FOLKS" like us!

                    canadian,
                    I spent two years in your wonderful province at Naval Station Argentia from October 1961 until October 1963. My wife and I rode the ferry from Nova Scotia, traversed the unfinished Trans-Canada Highway, nice gravel and MUD roads and two years later back west on the WONDERFUL finished road. I was deployed to Iceland 1/3 of the time. Never had to worry about my young very pregnant wife because the locals took good care of her. My first son was born there at the USN hospital, BUT delivered by a Scottish doctor from the hospital in Placentia (BTW where we lived the first year).

                    I would love to visit someday. You are wonderful friendly people. I would call you Friend!

                      Hey Ted , nice story. you are correct on the Trans Canada Highway being finished in 1965, government had signs with slogans ..." We will finish the drive in 65"

                    canadian,
                    I should add that I did understand the locals, although with difficulty at times.

                    Hey Bill....if you think English wording/accents are not understandable, try Scots!!!!! To score with the ladies as I travelled the world, I needed to learn the local lingo. Worked every time!!!! Across the british isles, accents change every 50 miles, sometime even less. Forget about West coast of Ireland, it's all the mother tongue there, Irish Gaelic. Even the directional signs are in Irish....but I persevered and even scored there too!!!
