Thanks for all the old expressions. I'm no stranger to any of them but I
like to hear then, nonetheless. My grandfather, Bob Whitus (always
spelled with the "U"), born Pulaski County, KY in 1870, used this
expression all my life: "Well, I pawn my honor!" It took me many years to
realize the seriousness of the phrase. Did others use the expression, or
was it a personal thang (sic) with my grand paw?
