    "gander" is to look... "take a gander at what that fool is doing."

    Better words: reckon, figger (figure), s'pose (suppose), guess, guestimate.

    Response by Brand Selvia, Reporter, Greencastle Banner Graphic:
    You are correct, but "gander" in colloquial usage (and the way I meant it) can be used as another word for "suppose."

    Thank you for reading.
