Tickety-Boo #BriFri — 8 Comments

  1. Posted this week ( a bit later than planned) is the latest Booker winner i read – this one is set in Wales and is funny as well as making a serious point about national identity

  2. Tickety-boo is an excellent phrase. It’s just so satisfying to say. 🙂

    This week I reviewed Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Shuttle.” I really enjoyed it, and it is pro-American to a point that is really almost bizarre. Kind of weird, anyway. 🙂

  3. Every time I hear Tickety-boo, I think of Call the Midwife 🙂 I have been meaning to start Foyle’s War over again from the beginning, I stopped off somewhere in series 2…but that was a year or two ago. I’ve been so busy binge-watching MERLIN that I haven’t gotten around to Foyle’s War yet.

  4. I love that expression! I have a hunch the hindi expression (tikai babu meaning okay, sir) is the correct one. I can easily see the Brits getting a kick out of the phrase and parroting it back but mangling it, can’t you?

    I haven’t seen all the Foyles War episodes—it’s catch as catch can—but I especially love the episodes that feature Foyle with Paul and Samantha. Honeysuckle Weeks—what a name—is especially endearing.

    Have a great week!
