I'ma guessin I'sa gotta learn ya bout the way we talk huh?

Just for the record for you folks out there that think I may be a dumb hillbilly redneck....... First off I'm not from any hills and I don't generally talk like that. I'm from Central Texas of German heritage so I really don't have much of an accent. When I was stationed in Georgia for 8 months and then in Louisiana for a year and a half in the Army I picked up a really bad accent. The accent is gone now, at least the "really Southern" one. I've been told that I'm accent neutral. But I still have fun with it and understand it.

Oh the natives in Lexington have a southern drawl. Its the new ones that don't. As do us folk in Lynchburg just to the east. I'm still trying to teach my yankee wife how to talk southern. It is a slow process but am making headway. She does say ya'll now.

Well kind sir I was unaware of that. Since I haven't been out to that particular part the world I ask your forgiveness.... And I am glad to hear your yankee wife is becoming cultured.

But does she say "Ya'll" properly??

Have some friends that live in PA now but lived in the area several years ago. The wife is from Long Island (Way heavy yankee accent). They were over at the house shortly after I built my 1st smoker and she had never seen a smoker before (city folk and all). Well she says "So that's a smoke-ah? Could you smoke some chickin in theah?". Hard to convey the Long Island accent but I just started bustin up laughing and started crying when I heard that and told her that "I could not only smoke-ah chicken in theah but I could also smoke-ah brisket too".

Sam Houston was from Virginia?? Wow it's lucky the city didn't get named Norfolk. With a texan accent that would be interestingly pronounced. How about Dallis Green... is he from Texas?
