Elliott" Subject: Not in Kansas All the anecdotes make me want to add a couple of my own. Soon after we were married, my Michigander husband was cooking dinner and asked me for a "calendar." I was puzzled and told him there was one hanging on the wall in the bedroom. His confused look made me realize that he really wanted a colander. Sometime later this Detroiter mentioned needing to wear a "salad-colored" shirt. I looked down at the salad I was eating and thought 'green with litle bits of orange and purple??' Then it dawned on me that he needed a solid-colored shirt. I'm getting used to his 'Great Lakes Vowel Shift' pronunciations. I know now that Ellen is a man's name. By the way, when I was a kid in Kansas I always thought it was "Toto" with a 't'. Nancy Elliott Indiana University
