  2. About 5 or 6 years ago my climbing partner and I were in Yosemite and ran into a group of young British climbers. They were going on about the great "Charity shops" they had been to out here...after a bit we realized they were talking about what we call "Thrift stores" over here. One young lad in particular, we were having a hard time understanding. Later, one of his mates said, "oh him, he's Welsh....half the time we can't understand him. We had a great time hanging out and swapping tales of "Charity shop" scores. I've scored some great motorcycle parts over the years.
