On to Another State

The going away party we attended last night was for Sam's boss and his wife.  They came here from Arkansas in 2001 and it's been one belly laugh ever since.  Don is quite a character, and Betty is a warm, wonderful lady...they both exemplify southern hospitality.  But Don...well now he's definitely his own person.  Over the years we have picked up on certain "Donism's."  Here's just a sampling.  Jeff Foxworthy ain't got nothin' on our ol' friend Don.

LIKE TO
"I like to pee my pants when that car hit me."

POOT
"All that chili made Don poot."



BOB WAR
"Boy, stay away from that bob war fence."

HEAVY DEW
"Kin I heavy dew me favor?"

BAWS
"If you don't stop reading these Southen wurds and git back to work, your baws is gonna far you."

BRATS
"Turn off yur brats Bubba.  You's blindin' me!"

CAUTERIZE
"Ju look at that lady?"  "Yep...I cauterize!"

DOOTCHER
"Dootcher momma tells ya to do.

REKON
"I rekon it is time for wurk."

RAT CHEER
"Ahma gonna sit rat cheer."

AH-ITE
"How ya doin', Bubba."
"Ah-ite."

ANAR
"I was drivin' my ol' Dodge pickup about a 100 maul anar."

ANAOMALY
"Anaomaly drink Dr. Pepper, but ah'll have a Pepsi few you mind."

AWDUH
"The Marshall brought law and awduh to the town."

BEGEL
"That's a begel bowl of grits you got there."

BALD
"Bring me some bald shrimp and another moon pah!"

Here's to you Don and Betty.  We're better for having known you, and none of us will ever be the same.

Hahahahaha! I'll feel right at home with Don. He'll fit nicely in my Alabama-Florida suburb. Thanks for the laugh.

These are so southern!  After living in the south for 13 years now, I can honestly say that I may be able to understand 50%-75% of what a southern has to say.  That's up from about 1%-25% 13 years ago.  I still have a lot of trouble with "ol".  Translation?  Oil.  Oil is 2 syllables, ol is only one.  LOL!  Go figure!

Your sis,

Chris

YEARS AGO ... as a trucker trying to communicate down there ... it did no good to ask for a bear report ... I couldn't understand what they were saying anyways.   AND TO THINK ... they would ask where MY accent was from!

It was almost like going to a foreign country .

Dona
As I live in Savannah, Georgia Don sounds just like all my neighbors.  The party looked like fun and I know you will miss them both.  I wanted to comment on the previous post about the karioke and the quilts, but I've run out of time and must scoot.  I miss your picture in the sidebar.  Take care!
Sam
