Of course no matter where we are if we have time we drive out into the surrounding country. South Georgia is beautiful, even in the hot summer. I guess that makes good peanuts and pecans. And if there is a Dairy Queen around we can find it.
At the next exit South, there is a Dairy Queen. Sherry always gets a kick out of ordering a ‘Pu caan cluster Blizzard. They usually ask is that ‘Pee Can’? Or will turn and say one ‘Pee Can’ cluster. Cause down here they grow Pee Cans. Not to be confused with the ‘Slop Jar’. haha!
I prefer the Tropical Blizzard!
This is by no means making fun of an accent, I don’t think I have heard an accent that I did not like. I enjoy traveling in different areas and hearing them speak. I really liked them ‘You Pers’ (U-PERS) up in Northern Michigan.
I never told Dar and Mel they had an accent, even though they made fun of mine. Slim & Bill didn’t have one.
Now the one I really enjoy, and sometimes it must be interpreted, is the Mainers, or Maine-i-acs.
We lived for a few months just a little north west of here in Albany, Ga, that is ALL-bennie to the locals. I was looking for a used truck, and got directions from the owner:
“Foller 19 Sou till you come to the far tar then rite. I ain’t far down the road.”
That one I got a kick out of, interpreted it was: “Highway 19 South, turn right at the fire tower.”
In all our travels, when we return to the south, I am still shocked that folks down here DO NOT KNOW they have an accent! But them folks from up north talk funny!
A traveling Life has been enlightening, an education in food and language. Someone said the other day, if we had lost the Revolutionary war, we would have been speaking English. Now I love the British accent. When visiting London just talking to the local folk was a thrill. I also found in Jamaica, they speak the ‘King’s English’.
(I think you know this, from London town, BB)
Language is interesting, I kick myself because I did not learn another language. I would have been speaking French fluently, if Sherry had not sat in front of me in French class!! (I was totally distracted by her Tail, Pony tail folks, PONY TAIL, hers was nice.).
Thanks for coming by the log.
Peanut oil is used for cooking in submarines because it doesn't smoke unless it's heated above 450°F
This is a wooden car. I tried to find the mahogany Rolls Royce but couldn’t down load it.
