no va - va is go applied to a single person she goes = ella va so no
va would be she does not go.
vaya con dios - go with god....
spanish verb for go is ir but it has strange forms -
in the present tense it is voy,vas,va,vamos,van
for I go , you go, she he goes (va) they go (vamos),
cowboy slag - "vamoose" must be from the spanish vamos they go
future uses ire, iras, ira, etc.
strange how much of my spanish from highschool i sort of remember
considering how poorly I did in language classes.
thanks for the joke - I had forgotten it
