    Dinah; my mom favored phrase, "He,s A little slow

    but bless his heart. God loves him.

    Blond-moment; LOL, wet dog has stank.

    Stealyourface; Stove up. The first time I heard that one,

    my ex- grandfather, lived in the country I mean deep

    in the woods. I enjoyed his company, never short on words.

    One day I called him to let him know I was coming out for

    our weekly visit. He told me he was stove up, didn,t know what

    to say. You mean there something wrong with your stove,

    no Iam sick.

    Bobcat: bobcat in phonebooth, that one you know what he is


    Wasbind; sho nuff, agree or is that right, I think.

    Cedars; In the country of Belize, when the JW,s came down

    to serve, the locals would get A kick out of the JW,s from

    the south(US). They loved hearing the freinds speak.

    They could not understand why they spoke and sounded so different.

    An old boss of mine used to describe something that was new and immaculate as "Shinier than a nickle in a goat's ass". I'm from Oklahoma and not even my vast backwoods experience prepared me for that one the first time I heard it.

    Born and raised southern, but been in Michigan a long time.

    I'll have to think on that. I miss the colorful characters of the south.

    Thought of one: Does a chicken have lips?

    Sooner: Well tie me to A pig and role me in the mud.

    Oklahoma is where I heard all those colorful phrases (9yrs.)..

    Flyinghighnow: One of my favored saying. It took awhile before

    I realize chicken do not have lips.

    "Does a frog have eyebrows?"

    My Papa Bert's favorite saying.

    In the South a poke = sharp jab or bag or both?

    In the South a tobaggon = sled or winter hat or both?
