I picked up an unusually shaped stone, flint most likely, with a hole through it, and my cousin said: "Ach ja, ein Huehner- gott!" I had never heard the expressio but he said that they, as kids, had always called it that when on vacation on the Baltic beaches. He had no idea why. I brought it back with me to Kentucky, hoping that some day I would find an etymological explanation. Karl-Heinz W. Boewe Medical Center Library University of Kentucky Lexington, Kentucky 40536
