Photos are Old South and Old South Sayings Italics (Meanings)... have fun
Hey (hello) just Hold your horses (be patient) I am fixing to (about to) talk more Southern Talk. I reckon (think) about now you are ready to have a falling out (disagreement)with me about all this Southern Talk.
The thing is this do-hicky (substitute name) I am typing on, resides in Dixie (southern states of USA) and I like to carry on (foolishness).
Don't ya'll (you all, two or more) be thinking I am into the white lightning ( moonshine (homemade) whisky). Directly (in a little while)I will stop all these Shenanigans (mischief, tomfoolery)
I know right now you are thinking of giving me down the country(piece of your mind) that I am too big for my britches (take yourself to seriously) and some of you might just be thinking, doesn't this blog just take the cake (surprised) but since I am on my own stomping grounds (familiar territory) I can hope you have no axe to grind (strong opinion).
some of you will feel like we are two peas in a pod (think alike) and some of you will be thinking, well, shut my mouth (shocked speechless)
My final words to you are don't be barking up the wrong tree (you are wrong) and don't go off half-cocked (have only half the facts) becaue the facts are I am down here in Florida living in high cotton (rising up in blog society).
You may be from the South if:
If When you speak, you make two or more syllables out of a one syllable word. (lamp pronounced lammm pppppppp)
If your sentences end in a question mark and you sing a couple of notes UP at the end of your sentence. my husband says I do all of the above.
If when you say the number 5 it sounds like hive and it takes 2 seconds to say it
Anyone have a favorite saying to share? or did i use all the ones you know?
