    I like "Ad Hoc:" "Ad hoc me up a lugee if'n I had some terbakky!"
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I have lived in the South all my life and I know of no one who talks like that.

    Must be a poor attempt by a yankee to make a joke.

    HAHA...so true. It's a language in and of itself. Though I will say in Norm's defense that it's not as bad in the big metro cities down south, as opposed to the small and medium sized city's.

    I have to thank you. As I am moving to Texas in less than a month, this will help greatly in understanding some of my neighbors I am sure. As a Boston transplant to South Florida, I now have a Boston accent with a mixture of Floridan. By next year imagine how mixed up I will sound with a Boston-Florida-Texas accent. I will be so confused!!!

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    Same here, and as my old grandaddy used to say " The most frightening sight to a native Southerner is a Yankee headed South pulling a U-Haul trailer. We have to take into consideration that playing with words is how they spend their time indoors from now to next March.

    I attended a school with a deputy from Fargo, ND sometime back and the poor fellow thought fire ant beds were prairie dog mounds. He had an entire new look on life after we isnstructed him to press on one with his foot.

    That reminds me of a speeding citation I was attempting to write to a gentelman from the FAR NORTH and he was really running his mouth. Hardly took time to get a breath between bitching about the southern speed traps, he was doing over 90 mph. I was to the point of introducing him to the judge when I noticed he had put his foot in one of our fire ant beds. Well you know what happened in about 10 seconds. When he finished jumping around and slapping fire ants off his foot and leg he demanded to know why I had not warned him. My response was "my old mama always told me, never interrupt anyone while they were talking".

    Fire Ants i know of, I am not your typical Yankee, been in the South far too long, more than half my life, and I keep my words to a minimum.

    Learned about fire ants in Texas. I'll stay up here and just visit y'all now and then.

    that dont matter, my dads from NC and moved back a few years ago, i go down there every year and one funny story that I can member as a kid is once I was on a train with my family, my cousin from VA and I went to get a soda from the beverage cart and I asked for a Mt dew and got it, he asks for a coke, and gets a coke. he said no I want a coke, and the lady said I just gave you a coke. no the clear kind he said....He got so frustrated I guess they call everything coke down there and he wanted a sprite. The other funny thing to hear a southerner say is this....Get someone from the south and tell them to say thank you in spanish... you will laugh your ass off when they say grassy ass

    ya'll yankees just jealous because God speaks with a southern drawl.


    "A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
    Ben

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
    President Ronald Reagan

    Yeah, you won. We got low cost of living, low taxs, cheap (relative) gas, The Right to Bear Arms (Translate: we got guns), low ratio of yanks to us, little or no snow, etc. What did the winners get: Hillary, John Kerry, Mayor Bloomberg, Ted (we'll cross that bridge) Kennedy, etc. Yeah, ya won, but was it worth it???
