momcat commented on the word tarry hoot
My mom used this expression (not sure if one word or two) when kids were jumping on the beds, making too much noise, acting up, etc. Examp: "Stop that tarry-hootin' and go to sleep!"

Additional comment: My mother was from Philadelphia, PA. Her mom was PA German (spoke the lang.) & father was Scotch-Irish from York PA. Not sure where my mom picked up the expression to tarry-hoot (tarryhootin').
