Hoodoo vs Mountain vs Poo

Well Casey, I've never heard of someone using hoodoo as another word for poo. Lucky cuz I sure didn't want to be climbing all over giant piles of poo.

Now here's your geology lesson. A hoodoo is also not a mountain. It's a thingy all of it's own. Now remember that Tim & I live in middle of the bald prairies and we found the Writing on Stone hoodoos near our home. We travel to my parent's place in BC to find lovely mountains. Please see exhibits A and B.

Exhibit A

These are funny shaped rocks that are fun to climb on, but if you need a better definition check this out. Ms. Wikipedia explains it a bit better than I could.

Exhibit B

These huge mountains are in Jaffray, BC. Not just funny shaped rocks.

I am always confused by your lingo! I read Skye's blog sometimes and I have to read it two or three times before I *think* I understand what she is saying. lol I love it though, you girlies are just too cute! Ashlee, I totally know what you meant from your comment today. I went through that phase a lot. It is not a fun time, a very stressful time in fact, but enjoy the time you have together, it is precious! Thanks for the poo, I mean hoodoo lesson!

So in reading a book last night it talked about hoodoos in reference to rocks, not poo. And come to think of it most folks call Goblin Valley in So. Utah the Hoodoos.
It's still a silly name if you ask me, Canadian or American.

If fact, I'm going to use hoodoo in place of all sorts of words-
Hey Cody, lemme see your hoodoo.
What in hoodoo is that?
Your husband's hoodoo, I can say that now because he's not teaching me about Jesus. Boy the hoodoo I could do with him...too far? Sorry, it's just too much hoodoo.
