    LOL I must say that is pretty old fashioned.

    Does Nelson know what trousers are? (I had to look up “dungarees.”)

    I thought dungarees were denim overalls.

    Eileen is a cutie. And those guys are good. And, shades of the sixties, they have a flavor of sound much like the Dave Clark Five. Gonna put them on a play list. Thanks.

    I truly lament for those innocuous juveniles who never trouble themselves to seize advantage of their intellect’s capacity.

    In the 60s my college roommate (from Ohio, I’m a NY Westchesterite) asked me for the skillet and I had to go to my dictionary to find out he meant “frying pan.”

    might explain the blank stares I get from my grandkids every now and then.

    The name DUNGarees suggests that they were pants worn in the barn for the more messy part of chores, or for spreading the brown.

    I like Opal’s capris. When my grandma wore capris over forty years ago they were called pedal pushers.

    Back in the 50s my mom called jeans dungarees, too, and you wore them when cleaning the basement. I was stunned when I saw ads some years later showing young women in jeans that fit well, not baggy, and wearing them out for the evening with heels!
    I wore gym shoes and only in gym class. Pedal pushers were good for riding a bike because longer pants could get caught in the bike’s chain. Language changes. I was later instructed by my daughters that they got “perms”, not permanents, and stayed in the “dorm” at college, not the dormitory. Grandma always sat on the davenport and used a looking glass.

    BarbJay: During our time in Canada, my son summed up the culture shock of “socials” (social studies), and “labour” with “They write long and talk short.”
