  1. Is there such a word as “Huck-a-ho”? In my mind it is something like hillbilly, but I am not sure where I picked it up from.

  2. My father, a native Newfoundlander, used the term “a buckshe” day to refer to a day taken off work without a legitimate reason. He claims it is a “Newfie” saying used by several of his friends over the years. Of course, I have no idea of the spelling, having never seen it written. Please help me find the term and its origin.
