Burb (from suburb)

[bʌrb]

 

VERB

 

To burb

To move at a speed

faster than a walk,

never having both

or all the feet on the ground

at the same time,

around every street

in one’s suburb...

It's burbing-time...

Over the next however-long dad and I will be burbing.

Come and join us....

 

Why not give it a go!

Take me to the final Archie burbs

 

Looking back a couple of years...

Littlewood Drive (south end)

Started with the best intentions around 6.30am.

Got to Casey Boulevard then dad realised he wasn't wearing his mask. So that added another 200m (and at his age every step counts).

Video-clip sound tracks?

Casey! Casey?

Who was Casey?

Casey is a given name, derived either from the Irish Gaelic cathasaigh, meaning "vigilant" or "watchful", or from a combination of the initials K.C. It is also a nickname; in the case of girls, it can be used as a derivative nickname for the name Cassandra

Can anyone throw any light on Casey - as in Casey Boulevard?

And, that was our final Archie's burbin'

Stay safe, folks!

A little self-indulgence goes a long way nowadays...

 

The choice of video-clip sound tracks....

During these somewhat depressing and trying times I have chosen to select

a background music which I think is light, fluffy and bouncy.

It's the music I play whenever I feel depressed or a little d-o-w-n....

If you can't stand the Beatles, Chuck Berry, Rolling Stones, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Beach Boys .... then I suggest you put your machine on MUTE.
