Subject: Re: carry & tote -- Hop on!

While watching this fascinating carry/tote discussion go on, I'm reminded

of my astonishment in the early '70s when, while on the No. Cheyenne

Reservation in SE Montana for four years, I consistently heard the phrase

"Hop on!" when inviting people into your car -- as if inviting them to

hop on to a wagon, buckboard, etc. Is this phrase fossilized anywhere

else in the country?


*Do you breathe the air, or does 'it' breathe you?*
