Wednesday's Word
Word: Gorry! (Interjection)

Note: All true Yankees use this familiar expression.

"I ice fished Moosehead (Lake) opening day, and gorry, wan't it cold! Holes skum over fast as you cut 'em."

(Definition from: "How To Talk Yankee", by Gerald Lewis & Tim Sample, copyright 1979, 1986 by The Thorndik Press; copyright 1989 by the First North Country Press)
