Boy, I say boy

Recommended Posts

We had a client from St. Louis that sounded exactly like Foghorn Leghorn. Pitch perfect.

A Korean War veteran, he'd say things to my wife like "I probably shot at your grand-dad". He had a voice that would carry from South Korea to North Korea.


He preferred the phone to email. As soon as caller ID showed it to be him... the wife ran to give me the phone, "Its Foghorn."

He would leave her deaf in one ear, so he was totally my responsibility.

    -- I liked talking to him, but his voice would leave my hair blown to one side of my head.


Ps. The tsuba is a copy of Jinbei / Jingo design, done by Issei Naruki (rough spelling). He is a good copyist and modernly accepted, though a bit over prolific in recent years. I owned one of his Nobuiye copies, but traded it to Arnold Frenzel one year in Tampa.

I find that Foghorn Leghorn loudness a North American trait, especially by tourists when travelling in Eastern countries. If you say it loud enough, even though not an English speaker, you are sure to understand. John
