Mal, I do believe I've got it. Can't prove it yet, but I'll bet I wil: The phrase "Scratch Gravel, White Wind!" PROBABLY originated in a comic book about a character called "Golden Arrow." Got little evidence so far, but the hero did ride a white horse, and I've found an archive of the comics. MAYBE!
Remember Jim Nabors' "Shazam!"? Jim and I grew up in Sylacauga, AL, and that was the cry of one of our heroes whenever he wanted to change from regular dood to superhero....name was Captain Marvel. I love being able to remember all that stuff from so long ago. For one thing, it probably means no Alzheimers for me . Good deal!
Be well and happy, my friend.
