the westward kind


My friend Kricket sent me this one, though her sister Rene took the photo out the window of a moving car. I guess a Westward "ho" is better than an Eastward one?

I don't want a ho with fleas!

Is this in Gnawbone, Indiana? I drove by it on Thursday, and almost took a photo for you!

Gnawbone, Indiana? I want to see that on a sign.

Ha, "westward, ho!" actually is a quote. The quotation marks should be around both words. It's the rallying cry for westward expansion from a hundred years ago. The "Ho" is not the shortened version of whore in modern slang, but the "ho" of "Land, Ho!"

Buffy said...

@Andrew--ummmm, we know what the "Ho" part was supposed to mean. You are totally missing the "point" of this "blog".

@deckardcanine--LOL!

Hugh said...

Yeah -- Gnaw Bone (apparently a corruption of Narbonne, France) is on Rt 46 between Bloomington and Columbus, IN.

The hos travelling from east to west need a place to rest and do business in the middle.

Westward Ho! is a village in Devon, UK. I believe it got its name from the title of a book.
