Re: Mary < **The Revised Mason-Dixon Line**
Posted by ff on 8/08/03
You can straighten this out. You'ns, You's guys, yinz, ya'll, all ya'all.. The largest city in this Florida county is a retirement
community for norther retirees. I question the applicability, or usefulness of the imaginary Mason-Dixon line, as true southerners are
getting harder to find. Johncodie will no doubt appreciate this: the worst thing I've ever heard is an actor trying to talk southern. Years
back, I believe it was Huey Long? Anyway, someone argued that "yankee" bees were cross breeding with southern bees, and ruining the honey.
POssibly the mold in the south is coming from the influx of northern retirees bringing mold contaminated materials into the state. Maybe the
Department of Agriculture Inspection Station should start checking for more than plants, and see about this mold thing. We have a mutitude
of problems ranging from bees to mold to northerners feeding the 'gators, that eat people when you don't feed them, usually southerners.
If a Mason Dixon line had to be established today, it'd be a tough job. Mary, take a break, order a book "If Nothin' Don't Happen" by David
Newell. I'm fixin' to go see if I can find my ol' copy, you'll love it, laugh a lot, and learn a little on speakin' southern.
