The two books, red and blue, combine in one.


Eye look back.





And in Warren’s kane forest as well, it appears. Warren knows, or thinks he does. It’s obvious from that list, to me, that Winona is actually Ohiowa Oming, not Miley. Or both in one. We can speak to her directly if she chooses to attend Sam Parr State College for another semester. If so she’ll have to take care of the roosters.


Here is the wikipedia article on the Indian princess the town of Winona, MN was named for.


I’ll quote some passages…

In the traditional Dakota language, “Winona” is not a personal name, but a general term for a first-born child of any class distinction who happens to be female.

The concept of the central figure as a “princess” is in keeping with a European-American stereotype about Native American “princesses.” In fact, the Sioux do not have an equivalent title for “princess” in any of the major dialects.[2]

Today “Winona” has become regularly used as a personal and place name throughout the United States.

This further statement stood out for me. Most Winona place names are in the midwest, like here in Minnesota. But Twain attaches a similar Winona “lover’s leap” tale to Winona Falls near the Pennsylvania/New Jersey border, much further east. Is this, then, the name origin for the Minnesotan Winona and other midwest versions? I might be a little confused here (and the sentence is confusing, as there isn’t a Winona Falls in Camden County, Missouri or Cameron Park, Texas as far as I can ascertain), but I thought I’d mention it because we have 2 twin Winona’s again to deal with, parallel with the 2 Winona Ryder images gracing the Rolling Stones covers from the early and mid nineties that now stare back at us jointly through one eye in this post.

Mark Twain in Life on the Mississippi wrote: “There are fifty Lover’s Leaps along the Mississippi from whose summit disappointed Indian girls have jumped.” Other locations with a similar legend include Winona Falls in Pennsylvania, Camden County, Missouri and Cameron Park in Waco, Texas.

Interesting that this particular Winona in Minnesota was spared, unlike the other same named leapers.

So we’re back to Clyde and Big Chimney.

Clyde (excerpt):


Hucka D.:

You were fishing for an answer and you were pointed toward The Mouse[ again]. Not just A Mouse mind you. *The*…


… yeah, I know. *The* Mouse. How did R. Booger Hayes then know about The Mouse? And I guess we’ll be entering that queer territory of “Mouse-speak” here, once more.

Hucka D.:

It didn’t, but it will.



Hucka D.:

Not in that way, but in that way. Half and half.


Will we ever get any straight answers about this?

Hucka D.:

Big Chimney is a folder. Q109 but R110. Half and half[ again]. Abbaddon… a bad one. Kills us all.


Sounds like Satan, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

He is. Or she. He probably. Half and half?


I decided to let Hucka D. rest for later. One curious thing struck me about the entire list of Clyde pop places in our US of A. If you alphabetize by county, Clyde in Pennsylvania is in an Indiana County and immediately below it we have a Clyde in Iowa County from the state of Wisconsin. I looked both up on topo maps — turns out Clyde, Wisconsin is near a Wyoming, which is also in Iowa County. Then in looking up a map of Indiana County in Penn. online, the town name Utah stuck out from among the rest.

That’s a Wyoming (town) in Iowa (county) in Wisconsin (state), and then a Utah in Indiana in Pennsylvania.



I wondered how many towns with the same name as a state existed in a county with the same name as a different state which existed in a state different from either of the other two. So I decided to check… didn’t take too long, about 45 minutes. Let’s even include Washington in the results. Here they are — not many.

This is the first that came up in my search, just starting with Alabama (town) and moving forward in the alphabet. A California exists in a Washington County in Pennsylvania. This is perhaps interesting because the town has come up before in this blog, because of its variant name of Philipsburg [LINK].


So here’s the rest:





But if we eliminate anything connected with the name Washington, by far the most common state name on all 3 levels, then we are left with our two original examples and Kansas in a Delaware County in Oklahoma. Oh but by the way, a Carolina and a Wyoming exist in Washington County, Rhode Island, just to be complete about all this.

Kansas-Delaware-Oklahoma doesn’t strick me as odd as Utah-Indiana-Pennsylvania or Wyoming-Iowa-Wisconsin. For one, there’s 6 Delaware counties in the US, as opposed 2 two named Iowa (Wisconsin and Iowa itself) and our 1 Indiana county (Pennsylvania). So let’s say I stumbled upon a unique map oddity through just a single extrapolation of Clyde town names across our country. Does it mean anything? Why these 6 states in 2 triads? Well, let’s take this angle. If I had to choose between the 2 triads in question, I might give the nod to Wyoming-Iowa-Wisconsin as being stranger, since Wyoming, Wisconsin is still a village and Utah, Pennsylvania appears to be extinct as far as I can tell. Also, Clyde is much closer to Wyoming in Wisconsin than Utah in Pennsylvania. So… Iowa and Wyoming have actually been coupled together with yet another state in this blog before to create a joke character called Ohiowa Oming. That’s 3 states again, with Ohio subbing for Wisconsin then, as it were. As it is.

Speaking of the Sam Parr State College enrolled students for its initial session, Hucka D. follows the introduction of Redd Foxx with this:



Who else has enrolled? I guess we should end this surrealism soon.

Hucka D.:

Dumbgo the Insignificant. He’s probably the worst of the bunch. Patty Pepper Mint herself has enrolled for a jewelry class.


I believe that one got cancelled.

Hucka D.:

Oh right. A shame. Story Room themselves will teach the class called “Composing with the colors red, yellow, blue”. That should be exciting.


Kind of a Piet Mondrian effect, then.

Hucka D.:




Hucka D.:

Who else? The B. R. Cyrus twins Idaho Oker and Ohiowa Oming. Oh, and Fredrika Mercurious, the famous dump truck driver. And Pletiosaurus Rex. I believe that might be it.


Thank you, Hucka D. Good night, and we’ll get to those collage interpretations soon.

Ohiowa Oming and her sister Idaho Oker (obvious play) as the twins of B. R. Cyrus, who is probably the same as Billy Ray Cyrus or, more probably, a variant BRC. Surely you the reader or readers have heard of Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus by now. Of course you have unless you’ve been living in a cave. I only live in a cave during a complete loony eclipse, but we won’t go into that. B.R. was or is the coach of the Chilbo high school football team. Sad I’ve just left that virtual area, but now I have the Rubi Woods again (yea!). I guess I’ll have to wait for Hucka D. to wake up again around dusk before getting more answers. See you then!

cub: 1 of 1:

As a tigress whose cub had been threatened would she appear, coming out of the shadows, stealing noiselessly along and holding the long wicked scissors in her hand.

Winesap-Cub Run (Kessinger), KY. Centerpoint? Hucka D.?

To complete the pseudo-triangle: Scissors-Run, TX. “Don’t run with scissors.”


And to remind, only other “scissors” is in same Winesap story, helping to identify the 1st three stories of the book as rock, paper, scissors (Story Room?). Rock in Kansas next to Wilmot and in Cowley County obviously is the 1st story now, as Wilmot identifies a character in the last story and Cowley identifies the writer of an important introduction to the book (introduction between last and first stories, if end is seen as looping back into beginning in an urobouros situation). Udall next to Rock and Wilmot also seems important. Identifies, for one thing, the *whole of America*, and perhaps represents the *whole of Winesap* (end to beginning) in same function. Clever huh? We know Winfield from the same county, which is the seat, is another way of saying “Winesap”. Win(n)field-Atlanta is something we haven’t brought up yet in this blog. Hope Hucka D. doesn’t stop me here.

We also know Udall is a False Winner.

GNIRPS has considerable more stuff on Cubs. Chicago Cubs specifically. Town rival (south to north) Chicago White Sox (from White Stockings) has recently been angled into our story from an unrelated direction. Chicago is our Second City. Cubs even use to be called White Stockings for a short time in the 1800s.

5 mentions of Chicago in Winesap. 2 in the 4th story concerning Doc Parcival (this would be just beyond the 3rd with the only mention of “cub”), 2 in the 8th story concerning Alice Hindman, and then the last one comes from the last story concerning Willard himself and his Departure from Winesap. Here they are in story order, then:

He came from Chicago and when he arrived was drunk and got into a fight with Albert Longworth, the baggageman.

In Chicago there was a Doctor Cronin who was murdered.

The young newspaper man did not succeed in getting a place on a Cleveland paper and went west to Chicago.

In Chicago he boarded at a house where there were several women.

His train runs from Cleveland to where it connects with a great trunk line railroad with terminals in Chicago and New York.

There’s 1 US Cronin, and in one of the 5 Anderson Counties.


Tiny Cronin is near something called the Anderson-Faulkenberry slayings site on this map.


Word Faulkner is included in Faulkenberry. W. Faulkner could be said to slay S. Anderson in an Oedipal way (son kills/usurps father). Just saying.


On January 28, 1837, six rangers, eighteen-year-old Abram Anglin, David Faulkenberry, Evan Faulkenberry, Benjamin W. Douthit, James Hunter, and Columbus Anderson, had left the fort to search for strayed hogs in the Trinity River bottom. Finding some of them, Hunter and Douthit were sent back to Fort Houston to fetch a canoe.

In their absence, the other four were attacked by a band of Indians on the Trinity River at a point known as Bonner’s Ferry. Anderson was mortally wounded, although he managed to swim the river and crawl two miles before dying. David Faulkenberry, severely wounded, also swam the river and crawled about two- hundred yards away before succumbing to his wounds. The Indians later claimed that David’s son, Evan Faulkenberry, fought like a wild man, killing two Indians and wounding a third. Severely wounded and already scalped, he was said to have jerked from his captives’ grasp and swum halfway across the Trinity before dying. The fourth man, Abram Anglin, although hit by a bullet in the thigh, managed to swim the river and escape on horseback with James Hunter, one of the two men who had returned from Fort Houston in time to witness the Indian attack.

The 3 that died were Columbus Anderson, David Faulkenberry, and his son Evan Faulkenberry. All swam the river or attempted to, leaving Anderson County and entering the next county west in doing so or attempting to do so. Anderson swam the river and died 2 miles beyond. Faulkenberry the father swam the river and died 200 yards beyond. Faulkenberry the son swam about halfway into the river and died before making it to the opposite shore. The 4th man involved (Abram Anglin) swam the river and managed to escape.

Btw, Anderson County is not named for Columbus but for a guy named Kenneth Anderson, former v.p. of the Republic of Texas, a service then in the future for the Anderson-Faulkenberry victims.

What if this is more than it appears on the surface, somehow tied to the future Anderson-Faulkner relationship? Anglin — angling? (fishing?).

Speaking of which, let’s return to Winesap and “fish” again. Only 2 “fisher”s, but 5 “fish”. 1 of these fish stands alone (“fish”), and is in the same sentence as 1 of the 2 Winesap fishers or fishermen, let’s say. That one was caught but then let go back into the stream or brook from which it came. 2 of the “fish” are part of “fisher”s (obviously). The remaining 2 “fish” (that got away or weren’t caught?) are in the last story again, which also contains the last of 5 “Chicago”s. I’ve cited them before but here they are once more. They both make part of the word “fishing”.

In the fall and spring he spends his Sundays fishing in Lake Erie.

In the smoking car there was a man who had just invited Tom to go on a fishing trip to Sandusky Bay.

Recreational escape (different type of Departure) to Lake Erie in the direction of Sandusky Bay may be implied. Where could this take us?



What could we be fishing for, ultimately?

And guess what? One of only 2 Longworth pplaces is in Fisher County, Texas (other is in remote area of Minnesota). That’s the other proper name mentioned in Winesap sentences containing Chicago. And that’s the only US Fisher County. Peculiar still?
