G'day Mark

Stone the Bloody Crows.

I can imagine myself saying "cheerio". There I am in my Tweed jacket,
jodhpurs, deer stalker hat, cocked shot gun and obligatory hound
standing by my knee. Thatched cottage and BN3 in the background.

"Cheerio and tootle-pip my good man."

I'd be a real dag and me mates would give me a right earbashing. Spare
me while I have a technicolour yawn.

Fair suck of the sav mate. No bloody way would I say that.

Fair dinkum "Hoo Roo" is an affectionate (careful- can't be too pally
with blokes) way of saying goodbye to kindly thought of mates.

Hoo Roo

OK old chap.   I've been reading your helpful  additions to the List for
years and understand most of what you say in the Ausie language.   But
the life of me I can not figure the   "Hoo  Roo"   out.

Is there an English equivalent to that phrase?
