True, true, true.

Think the Texans are being a bit cheeky in claiming it as theirs - I first met it via an Australian politician in the early 70s. Don't know where he got it from but certainly the Oz politicians took no notice of it and happily fling dirt.

Do "cheeky " mean what i think it do?

I find when I throw dirt, it tends to end up back in my face and eyes - and I hate spitting it out of my mouth!!

Of course some Texan would claim this as theirs .... Texans are a breed and nation unto themselves ... just ask cowboy :-)

Umm ... I think 'cheeky' in this use of the word probably means someone who is quite nervy ... or impudent.

Is there another cheeky I'm missing??

ps. though I LIVE in Texas I in no way claim to be a Texan - EVER.

Goodness! You don't know what 'cheeky' means? Didn't think it was an Australianism.

I suppose the easiest definition would be 'lacking respect' but in an impish sort of way, rather than malevolent.

I lost an acre or two during the football today.....

Impudent is exactly the meaning of cheeky.

I have a Texas Dirt Shirt. Texans stomp new t-shirts in the red dirt, and along come englishmen, who love red-dirt, and buy them.
Texans sell dirt.
