    Ta Ta = Good bye .... Ta = good..."Carrots" are good!

    Ayz = Aussie word for Fog...Haze is synonymous w/ayz so its either or ....the key word being "or"!

    Slath = Slat (for a lithper)... Slat = "Stick"

    It's easy to see that the answer is "Carrot or Stick! Are there also whips and chains involved?

    :rolleyes: OK I'll let this one go a couple of more days before I tell you who it is. Another hint, "Grayfox" should know who he is.

    Thanks

    It is Hinmaton Yalatkit


    Joseph the Younger (Hinmaton Yalatkit in his native tongue, which translates as Thunder in the Mountains) was born to Old Joseph (Tuekakas) and Asenoth. He is believed to have been baptized Ephraim by a Presbyterian missionary at Lapwai, in the heart of Nez Perce country. This area, which comprises parts of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, contains some of the most desirable land in the United States

    "The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it. You might as well expect the rivers to run backwards as that any man who was born a free man should be contented when penned up and denied liberty to go where he pleases."--Joseph (Hinmaton Yalatkit), Nez Perce chief

    :) Indeed Chief Joseph. Now for a little "Wildman" story. Apparently my great great grandfather on my mothers side was the one who tried to put him and the tribe on the reservation. My great great grandmother was apparently given a traditional native American burial when she passed away by this tribe. These things were told to me by my grandmother, who was raised by them, her parents had died of the fever coming out west in covered wagons.

    Thanks

    Wildman,

    That sure didn't look like any Chief Joseph picture I ever saw. That's what fooled me.

    Foolishly yours, greyfox
