ABC of Pictures - Letter Y

Y is for... Yarning or "having a good yarn"

 The word yarning is believed to have come to New Zealand from Australia in the mid-1800. It means passing the time by telling stories. A yarn is not necessarily a tall or untrue tale, but more like having a chat or a catch up. There is nothing like "a good yarn" with someone.. a catch up..

I love it.
They don't use that word much, if at all over here, and I love it.
