Just to get another direction started (O.K., it's comedy relief) Yvsa once said he would let me explain "Walosi".
I once crewed a warehouse in N.C. with one of the best groups I've ever recruited for a new distribution facility - all characters, and just about equally divided among the county's three main ethnic groups - English, Lumbee and Black. Two exceptions - the old "two bloods" and a young Cherokee girl, who always had an excuse for needing Friday or Monday off. We buried one uncle several times, as I recall. One Monday,she brought me a comical little ceramic frog, in a rocking chair, with a quizzical expression on its' face - said I looked exactly like that every time she came up with another excuse for an extra day off, "Just like an ol' Walosi". Now it's my web nic.
Yvsa, on the other hand, uses his Cherokee name in every day life, but has never said how this came about. I've confessed as to how I became a Frog - How did you become a Buffalo, Bro???
