Hobo is a fun word and does stir images of "happy but poor" riding the rails!

Keep making more home made stamps, Brooke...I use erasers :-)

Thanks for blogging Katerina.

I just love that word '"HOBO". I have Steinbeckian images of a good natured, down on his luck man riding the rails.  I suppose I like the idea that that 'hobo' might be a bit politically incorrect as well.  It seems a word from another time, a more innocent time maybe.  Erni, not everyone has a car here; at least not in Seattle.
