  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

  for the English it would be "Cheerio!"

  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 for
  the life of me I can not figure the   "Hoo  Roo"   out.

  Is there an English equivalent to that phrase?
