Now is that pronounced "Frankfort" or "Frankfurt," Louie?

milk or melk,
oil or earl,
pillow, pella, or peller?


She stood silently looking out into the great sallow distances of sea bottom, as if recalling something, her yellow eyes soft and moist...

Yeah, Rock.
Small nearby town of "Norfolk" that everyone pronounces "Norfork."
Go figger, ...err, figure!

I am as "upstate" as it gets! A stone's throw across the mighty St. Lawrence to "O Canada!" Want some snow, Dandy?

I'm excited! Well, until I remove a few more deadbeats, anyway.

Hey I resemble that remark, although I'm considered a deadhead and beat poet. There is a difference. Who ever heard of a dandelion doing the exterminating, do you use a scythe?

(I'm staying in here tonight, supposed to snow a few inches, it's toasty inside. Pass me some hot chocolate....)

Rocky, check out the etymology of "dandelion"...
"Lion's Teeth"!
Sure, she looks like a cute bonnetted prairie chicken on the back of her book, but interlopers beware!

You should live in Washington State...

Everything here (rightfully) is named after Native Americans. Rivers, cities, streets, many things.

Puyallup (PEW-Al-UP)
Yakima
Clallam
SKOkomish
SKYkomish
Seattle (Chief Seattle)
Tacoma (Mount Rainier's Native American name, from 'Tahoma')
Hoh
Spokane
Stillaguamish

Only a few examples. No one minds though. We all know who came first around here... Cool

BII, one man, on seeing that picture, exclaimed, "You practically have a halo around your head--you can't be that sweet!" To which I replied that one of my many-great grandmothers on my father's side greeted the unexpected and unwelcome visit of a Native American in search of food by dumping a pot of scalding hot beans on the visitor, chasing him around the room, removing his ear with a knife, and keeping said ear as a proudly-displayed memento for years! Cut down on unwanted company around the old homestead.

Dandy, your "said distant great-grandmother" sounds like my kind of people!

Robert B, I grew up in Seattle; my mom was born in Port Townsend, I have many Scandihoovian relatives up there. I'm even a Patches Pal!
As Stan Boreson sings, "I left my heart...
