Subject: Re: chuck hole/pot hole

Is chuck/pothole regional, age-related or both? And, btw,

who was Chuck? I suppose someone will tell me that a chuck is

some piece on the axle of a horsedrawn wagon that broke or

fell in.

Probably regional. I grew up in Southern Ohio and had relatives from

Kentucky. Chuck hole was the term used. I moved to New England and have never

heard the term (they use Pot hole) and when I used the term Chuck hole they

didn't know what I was talking about. (Kinda like Frappe in New England for a

very runny unthick shake.)
