I'll skin my children if I ever catch them saying "sheenie" in my presence.
sheenie Annie went on the stand and swore perjury in order to save Jack.
They were my little German girl and the owner of a pawn-shop, a sheenie of advanced years.
On one occasion, when I was about eighteen years old, sheenie and I were on a racket together.
Later on, as she advanced in years and became an expert pilferer, she was given the nickname of "sheenie."
For a long time I took sheenie Annie's advice and did not do any night work.
I can give an example of how sheenie Annie "hoisted," from my own experience with her.
