I am pleased to say that I have known this man for many years. I think you'll enjoy looking at his website. He's quite a character.
He told me that he was once introduced as the "Hobo Menstrual". LMAO!!!!

we do the Wabash Cannonball but I'm not sure we consider that to be his. In fact, I may use the tune tonight for the dance I'm doing.

haha great site Les, i love his definition of hobos , tramps and bums, i saved it to my favorites, always interesting in hearing about hobos , my dad used to hobo back and forth across this country in the 30s and 40s looking for work and used to tell us some great stories about some of the people he met and the tales told by some of them.
