    Please keep in mind....many if not most of my posts are put up 'for entertainment purposes only'. I do get a kick out of stirring the pot just a bit! [​IMG]

    It's Friday evening and the OP just gave us the green light! [​IMG] I'll have a bit of fun pointing out that Roo was Kanga's joey in Winnie the Pooh. Makes for an interesting mental image when you go back and read Heron's post! [​IMG] "The wonderful thing about Tiggers, is I'm the only one!"

    From Wikipedia;
    Roo
    is a fictional character created in 1926 by A. A. Milne and first featured in the book Winnie–the–Pooh. He is a young kangaroo (known as a joey) and his mother is Kanga. Like most other Pooh characters, Roo is based on a stuffed toy animal that belonged to Milne's son, Christopher Robin Milne, though stuffed Roo was lost a long time ago.

    Thanks a lot guys for embarrassing the crap out of me, I promise to never use that term again. I was using it just as a short, not to have to type so much. Kinda like texting speak, which I don't talk, always tell my oldest I don't know what the heck your saying why can't you just call me, reminds me of the mother that asked her daughter after a text what this meant

    No more 'roo' from me!

    Oh bother! You didn't know?!? [​IMG] Ummm ... how can you not know Roo is a character in Winnie the Pooh? Are there really people who grew up without the Winnie the Pooh cartoons and stories?

    If you want shorthand, just use C, K, H, P. Cannot beat that for short.

    Rooster is not incorrect, and it is not regional.

    It is also not precise.
