an ode to y’all

Y’all: contraction for ‘you all.’ Plural.

“I am proud to be from the South – where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April, front porches are wide and words are long, mac and cheese is a vegetable, and pecan pie is a staple. Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy. Everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed.” -Unknown

Some Southern Sayings…

Don’t let your mouth overload your tail.

Every dog should have a few fleas.

Sun don’t shine on the same dog’s tail all the time.

A whistling woman and a crowing hen never comes to a very good end.
