a bit of fun or sheer madness?

Fimbo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:40:36

Never mind Elle, I have just been educated to what a croggy is!

If it saves her from dodgy windscreen poetry ... smile

oh we did this all the time back in the day!
never bothered with helmets either
not saying it's right but times have changed I guess

Thank you, Dr Northerner, I have learned a new word today!

compo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:42:13

actually we used to sit over the wire bit over the back wheel, I thought that was a croggy

Fimbo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:42:24

Ah Stella, good not just me then.

bundle Tue 16-Sep-08 16:42:55

good word, crog

MmeLindt Tue 16-Sep-08 16:42:57

I did not know what a croggy was either.

I dont think it is a problem, he is wearing a helmet.

DrNortherner Tue 16-Sep-08 16:43:07

Me to compo. I just assumed a croggy was taking a pillion regardless of where the sit!

I wouldn't let my dc ride like that.

I have now learnt 2 new things on MN today, thanks DrN

compo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:46:11

abouteve Tue 16-Sep-08 16:46:18

Never hear of croggy. Wasn't sitting behind a 'backie'?

bundle Tue 16-Sep-08 16:46:20

crog can be sitting on crossbar (might be where word came from??)

compo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:46:26

sorry should say slang word

Spidermama Tue 16-Sep-08 16:46:26

Zippi they're always snapping Elle on the school run. That said I'm sure she dresses for it so it's a chicken/egg situation.

zippitippitoes Tue 16-Sep-08 16:47:05

DrNortherner Tue 16-Sep-08 16:47:43

Imagine bumping onto Jase though.

I used to lurve him.

PinkyDinkyDooToo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:47:43

Fimbo Tue 16-Sep-08 16:48:26

Croggy on the back, crozzy on the crossbar.

Although in the local accent they sound pretty much the same.
