Pilchers?

Postby ramsons » Fri Feb 25, 2011 7:53 pm

Just curious really, I know this forum is called "Wraps (pilchers)" but I've never heard anyone call a wrap a pilcher, is it an old fashioned term or something? A North/South thing?

Just wondered (bored, friday night, ill child, pregnant so no drinking....) :wink:

I've never heard of it either ... My Mum did to begin with refer to Rufus' wrap as a 'Rubber' :shock: but I soon told her that I thought that meant something else now & suggested she just call it a wrap.

LOL ... Jack says he thought it was a fish :giggle:

:shock: :hohoho: The "rubber" has obviously changed meaning over time! I have to say I've never heard of it either, my mum calls them plastic pants :giggle:
