BOLO Part 2


My brain is working overtime . . . trying to make up for lost time, I'm sure.   I looked at the title of my post from yesterday - BOLO.    

Bolo may refer to:
  • Bolo, a wild flower.
  • Bolo bat, a child's toy
  • Bolo knife, a Filipino knife similar to the machete
  • Bolo punch, a wide sweeping lower cut used in boxing
  • Bolo tie, decorative string tie
  • A community or tribe in the 1983 book bolo'bolo by Swiss author P.M.
  • Bolo, used as a derogatory expression for Bolsheviks
  • BOLO, an acronym used by law enforcement, standing for "Be on the lookout", often used as “bolo alert”; an all-points bulletin
  • Bolo snake, an extremely rare snake, found only in Fiji
  • Bolo, a slang term for a Salvadorean drunk

I was not being rude to a Salvadorean drunk OR the Bolsheviks when I titled my post BOLO.  My husband has never worn a bolo tie, although I think they're kind of awesome.   I don't like snakes or boxing, although either might come in handy if you're being mugged.   My children have never played with a bolo bat, although we've been to Carlsbad Cavern and have been CHASED by bats.   I use a regular steak knife, not a knife similar to a machete, although if I'm ever walking in a jungle, I'll be sure to carry a bolo knife.  

Hmmm.   Who would have thought that four little letters could mean so much?!  Well, really I guess THREE letters because O is in there twice.  

OR, maybe I DID think that thought and lost it through the hole in my head.

  1. I had to look up BOLO after hearing them always use it on 'NCIS'. I didn't understand why they just didn't use the more common APB.

  7. When I first read Bolo Punch, I really thought it was going to be a recipe for punch. My mind envisioned a punch bowl at a baby shower, filled with ice cream and lemon lime soda. I'm obviously not well versed on boxing or party drinks!

  9. Happy Thanksgiving, and why must you confuse me on a day where I have to make the kids look respectable AND remember to bring Joe's cheesy potatoes?

    I think I spelled potatoes wrong.

    Have a great day!
