GPP Network Street Team Crusade #7 "Say What?"

After reading so many of the other entries, just had to search and find some more Aussie ones... There are lots but think I'll just keep with these! lol

Up the creek without a paddle - to be in trouble
In the sticks - out in the country
Flat out like a lizard drinking - very busy
Happy as Larry - very happy (no idea who Larry was)
Fair dinkum - telling the truth
Big bikkies - lots of money
Put another shrimp on the barbie - This was definitely made up for overseas.... we call them prawns not shrimps!
It runs on the smell of an oily rag - an economical car
That's stiff cheese - That's bad luck
He's got a few roos loose in the top paddock - Doesn't have it together

Isn't it funny....the Larry's and Pete's (for Pete's sake) of this world are always having their names called...poor guys don't even know the "what fors"! Love your "say what's", had a great time reading (and recognizing some) them.

My goodness Harley is adorable - I want to smooch him right now! And how wonderful the two dogs are enjoying each other's company.

The sayings are fantastic!
