THE YAAN : After a few wet years, May 2012 has been a month of blue skies. Nothing but blue skies.

The AUSSIE SLANG DICTIONARY provides me with the words below.

Blue : fight (“he was having a blue with his wife”)
Blue, make a : make a mistake
Bluey : pack, equipment, traffic ticket, redhead
Bluey : blue cattle dog (named after its subtle markings) which is an excellent working dog. Everyone’s favourite all-Aussie dog.
Bluey : heavy wool or felt jacket worn by mining and construction workers.
Bluey : bluebottle jellyfish

and the classic BLUE – I ‘m feeling blue. Miserable. Depressed.

I was married once to the son of a Logger. My husband’s job was to scramble down the steep hills and attach cables to felled trees so that the heavy equipment could drag them back up the incline. That job was called BLUE TONGUER after the Blue Tongue Lizard. It took the same skills to be a human blue tonguer as to be the reptile.

I am not specially TRUE BLUE as they call it but I thought it fitting to include some TRUE BLUE AUSSIE links in here. Mind you, I am distantly related to SLIM DUSTY who is also TRUE BLUE.
