I had a major "senior moment" and completely forgot to sign up for Fun Monday this week.
So, I am swiping this from Wendy instead !!

I like this I have different names for about half the things. Isn't that wierd same language but SO different. I have no idea what I would have called no 10! A very big sandwich?

:) TOO FUNNY!! I have a lot of midwestern words still in me also since that is where I spent some time growing up.

Might have to do this one!

That is almost exactly what I would have said. The only difference - I would have called it a teeter-totter. I have lived the majority of my life in the NW, but my parents were both from the Midwest.

We differ on a few - I would call them sneakers and a bathing suit.
