About Kemo Sabe …

Something “Beautyofsweden” said in her comment on the last post concerning the name Kemo Sabe as relates to gender triggered a memory.  In the 80’s, my younger sister and I attended the State Fair in Sacramento with out mother.  At the time we were in our 30’s.  We decided to have one of those photos taken where you dress up in costumes.  It was something we’d always wanted to do.  The costumes were western themed and the photographer pulled out saloon girl dresses for us each to pose in.  We both shook our head and this was the result.  SO, not only does “Kemo Sabe” mean “trusted friend” (at least in one interpretation), I think it applies to the feminine gender equally well on other levels as well:

Me on the left with my sister, Nevada on the right: “trusted SCOUTS” (also another interpretation of the name Kemo Sabe)
