Why don't you make like a tree...and get outta here.

Feel free to attack my Southrn dialect. Ive been ridiculed for my speech for five decades now. You might say, Im use to it.

I believe that also qualifies me as a master of mispronunciation (at least Im a master of something ). Having that distinction& I see it as an obligation to point out where those that see themselves as better then I might just possibly also find themselves out of compliance with the ridged confines of the Queens English.

Actually you need to work a little harder if you want to compete with us at mis-enunciation That long O yall sprinkle through out the discourse is just about the only way to tell if someone is actually from Canada in the first place.


As for the folks in New England& They can fight their own battles.
Historically, theyve proven themselves to be rather good at that.
Yes, Paul and I are assembling the militia and preparing to attack Canada! Of course I'm not sure why?

Finally got the e-mail, made my recording and getting the Beverly out of here.... I'll check in to say hi while we're gone, but from this point on, consider me to be behind and out of the loop for the next week and a half.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you all later!

Remember those days as well. Glad I don't have to lug them around anymore.

I'm confused.
Kentucky is in the SouthEast.
Murray State is in the Ohio Valley.
Western KY is in the Sun Belt.
Louisville is in the Atlantic Coast.

Which accent to I get to use?

I remember carrying DD around. We were at POFQ so the walking wasn't too bad. Enjoy those moments. They don't last long enough. My 5' 1" daughter will no longer be carried.

How about European? I hear the chicks really like that accent.

It’s the phonetic spelling for the word as I keep hearing it pronounced.
I take it that the pronunciation is different up in the Maritimes then?
Phonetic spelling? That is some fancy words.

Sounds good. Are you the statistician for the team of just your own child?

I would love to take over Disney. Honestly, I don't think I would put forth that much effort.

We have a parent keep track of the stats. It's fun for the girls. We have a web page where they can go in and see how they are doing. We put up pictures and some "tips of the day". Everyone has a good time with it. A lot of the parents pitch in to keep things going.

Yeah, mine is almost 5' as well. The book on her head didn't work.
