You shouldnt've told us what you put on the shelf, that could of been been a great collection for ' Shall We Run Our Own Experiment?' !
WHAT a good idea. I could make the shelf a bit slopey so the ornaments would randomly slide off and people could guess what's just fallen on Scargy's 'ead!

Looked up the word on the context.reverso French English translation site:
J'avais l'habitude de l'entendre s'accrocher à la kharzi.
I used to hear him hanging on to the kharzi.

Well, that was enlightening.

*Shit - wrong spelling !
That's probably the right spelling. My northern English accent leaves out the 'r'. It becomes silent like the 'p' in 'bath'.

I used to hear him hanging on to the kharzi.


Why was he 'hanging on to the kharzi', and what sound did he make? Who WAS he anyway?
Enquiring minds need to know.

Assumed this was a useful phrase to know in French, like "la plume de ma tante" (which aunt ?) or "Le singe est sur la branche!" (Eddie Izzard's monkey in the tree).

I got the same reaction when I offered to take her up the Shard for our wedding anniversary!

Boiling today in London, I was running an errant in Russell Square and noticed for first time the Cab shelter was open to the public (12-2pm) . The hut is one of only a dozen still standing, owned by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, originally (1901) providing shelter and sustenance for horse drawn Hackney drivers (now black cab) - built no bigger than a horse and cart, in line with Met Police rules because they stood on public highways. Anyway, not allowed inside (not a cabbie) but got bacon roll and tea (£4.00 cash only) through the serving hatch. And will be back tomorrow.

I've mowed the back lawn, I'm going to mow the front lawn, I've advertised a computer desk and a pair of 1940s/1950s bakelite door handles on Freecycle. Oh yes. Life is good!
