When I was a kid, I had a pair of green jodhpurs.  My dad had a brown pair and he wore boots with his.  I had no boots to wear with mine but I really liked those pants!  All my life I have called them "jod-fers."  Last week I heard them mentioned on a tv program and thought something didn't sound right. I looked up the word on and listened to the pronunciation. Sure enough! It's "jod-purs." No one ever corrected me. But then, how many times does that word come up in a conversation?

Just shows, you are never too old to learn something new or that you were wrong and never knew it.

Found a photo. I don't remember mine being quite this wrinkled.
