14. You have solved an age old mystery for me...



My G'ram's family was from Ohio. Family name was Kendall, about 3 generations lived there.

She always said "red up the dishes" but I never could find the source of that.
And "worsh"

What's really interesting is her family moved to Seattle in 1906, when she was still quite young.
Washington state was always pronounced "Worshington".
I never knew why.

Added tid-bit...The Boeing Company, Washington' biggest employer for generations, was always called Boeings, by almost everyone I knew.
