Hobo Tramp and Bum

A  L  O  H  A !
"Enlightenment must come 
little by little - otherwise 
it would overwhelm." 
                                Idries Shah

"Life is not about how 
to make others happy, 
Life is about how you 
share your happiness 
with others" 
                                 Chinese Proverb

I tried to 

catch some fog... 

I mist!

Linking to


A Hobo is a migratory worker 
of great pride and skills
 who rides the rails from harvest to harvest,
The term  probably originated in the
 Northwestern United States 
[where they work the apple harvest] 
around 1890. 

The Tramp" walks ['tramps'] everywhere, 
works only when absolutely forced to.

Bums never work. 
They survive on the largess
of their fellow citizens and 
of the system they disdain.

Thank YOU
for Migrating Here!
                   Fondly, cloudia

Have you read Idries Shah's Mulla Nasrudin series? I think you would like them.
Love the quotes, and the photos. Always.

Great images and I love the second quote. BTW, I read your book. I think everyone should have someone like Aunty. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

I wonder when hobo came into vogue. I know Jack London wrote about riding the rails in 1893--I'll have to go back and find that book and see if he used the word hobo.

Love the second. It is not but bird but I thought it.

I remember reading that there as a whole hobo culture with various signs and forms of communication. a fascinating topic, although I've never had time to properly study it.

Interesting info on hobo's. I'm sure you know wikipedia has much more. Interesting read.

William Kendall said...

Ah, so that's the difference between them.

I got a chuckle out of your mist and fog quote. The first quote is oh so true - understanding comes line upon line, a little at a time.
