Subject: thanx for pignuts
Thank you for the info on pignuts--it seems I should have done my own
homework before asking for help. I'm guilty of assuming that because
it sounds regional, an item must be regional. I do seem to have gotten
slight variations in responses, though. Some suggest that all Hickory
nuts are pignuts; some that certain hickory nuts are pignuts; AHD seems
to suggest that pignuts are another variety of nut than hickory. My dad's
usage seemed to me to be the second of the above.
Any more thoughts n "pignuts"? Thanks again for your time.
