Or, as my friend who's gran was Pennsylvania Dutch would say, "in the house, the rain I am waiting to end." *LOL* I think it's a shame we all seem to be losing our regional dialects. Everything is becoming a generic "northern" or a generic "southern". Another friend of mine has family that hails from rural Virginia (his grandpap rubbed elbows with the early greats of this country). I could listen to his uncle talk all day long, that lovely Virginia accent. (Of course I inherit this from my mom: when she was 80 and needed to get a photo id to replace her driver's license, we went to the DMV and were waited on by an older man with this absolutely amazing Cuban accent. My mom kept asking him these dumb questions and he kept patiently answering them. When we finally got out, I said, "Mum why were you asking all those questions??" "I just wanted to keep him talking....that accent makes my knees weak." *HA*
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

Oh I love that!! Love your mom, wonderful at 80.

Well Annie, I reckon I write it just as I speak it. I grew up just over the mountain from Pound, Virginia. Literally. Of course there , just as in KY, the east and the west parts of Virginia are very different. I grew up in SE KY and now I live in NW KY. It gets a little confusing sometimes when I forget where I am. I do like holding on to my culture, though I've taught my way all across the state and almost in a straight line. The worst part was unlearning what I'd learned when I taught 10 years in Louisville. W KY not only sounds different but they are grammatically in a deep dark hole. What a shame! Yet here I still am just like I had a grain of sense.

You keep on writin' jus' so I can keep rite on readin'!! I love watching your gardens grow. Smiling
