I also learned a new boot heel word. An attorney told me his client was as dumb as a stump (she was!). He also told me she was as simple as a creek minner. Yes, minner. This is a small fish that lives in creeks and describes unsophisticated people in the boot heel. In case you don't live in our fine state, the boot heel describes the southeast corner of the state of Missouri which is shaped like a boot heel. Just like Italy. That sure would be an interesting coffee table book- comparing he boot heels of Missouri and Italy- people, architecture, culture and art.
