Default Being patient...

Lake morning for my son and I...watching me tie the lures on for some trolling. He'd much rather be moving and not less than 50 times did he ask me "when we gonna drive da boat daddy". Damm I love that boy. 2 small white bass to show for our efforts but still good to be on the water this morning, especially with that lil honyok.

Hope y'all are having a good weekend.

Us old folks know that a "honyok" was a "kid," no special meaning beyond that.

An alternative was to call them a "cherub", again, no special meaning.

Well......drive the boat Daddy!!!!!!

How true - my grandson is not even 2 and on the way out on our first trip this year he was clinging to Mommy. On the way back wanted to run around the walkaround and he is yelling FASTER, WAVES!

What initially meant “careless,” “sloppy,” and “derelict” has now become a light-hearted term of endearment.

It's sort of like an Irishman calling his child a "tinker", which was slang for gypsy in a derogative way. Now tinker is more endearing depending on how it's used. Same with honyak (I think that's the correct spelling).

Great pic LI Sound Grunt!

Honyok is definitely a nice way to say he's a lil shit when he wants to be.
