You do not punctuate correctly: should be y'all, grandparents'[or grandparent's, if there is only one]
And several errors such as half permed instead of half-permed, for example. If two words are used before a noun to modify it [that means describe] they should be hyphonated. If they are after the noun, they are not.
Since you are trying so hard to pass for being educated and writing well, you need to work on this.

To Trash,
Like "For Arden" says, you do not punctuate correctly, and further, these are the mistakes you made in your comment:

Loose Wrong spelling
'yall' in the proceeding way.(should be a colon here, plus ya’ll needs an apostrophe; debatable where.)
your 3 inch roots..) Too many, or to few periods here.
Avery Counties finest. Shouldn’t this be Avery County’s finest?
Dad(you did/do hate Shouldn’t you put a space before the parenthesis?
and make this official" Where’s the period?
both of your trailers are on your grandparents property. Where is the apostrophe, assigning ownership?
selling the Oxy's Not a possessive.
Live Laugh Love No commas?
You have a lack of paragraph skills.
It seems you are trying to disparage a person, while at the same time you show your lack of appropriate punctuation and spelling skills. You are a troll. Go away.

Sorry, Trash, I missed one:

he just shrugged and mumbled "Hell, we might as well go down to the courthouse and make this official"

Where's the comma before the quote? And where is the period at the end of the sentence?
You really should check your house before you start throwing stones.

Not to be anal, however, I have enjoyed pappy's many times and mourn it's demise and find gramer (sp) on this topic to be secondary to the loss of a fine establishment. We travel from pa biyearly (sp) to the area and loved the place. Rip pappys , as an impartial visitor go to the Woodlands in blowing rock for good bbq. Critique spelling and grammar as u wish.

Not worth it. You missed the point by a month.

Sounds like the comment from "Trash" (Fitting name) came from the sweetie that was our waitress at Frontier. Either that or some other broad with some baggage. Anyhow, after my experience eating there, I will not go back. Food not that good for the price they charge. We need Pappy back and Trash needs a therapist!

You have shown a complete lack of understanding of proper grammar, syntax, and diction; yet, as much as I would enjoy helping to enrich your literary capabilities, I cannot justify wasting any more of my life than I already am in responding to this garbage. My only goal tonight is to sneer at, berate and belittle you and everybody else in this area that is responsible for me having to show my license when I buy allergy medicine.
You might have saved time and skipped typing "local gal" as it is awfully redundant. You have already made it crystal clear that you are a product of 'these here yonder hills' just by what you attempted to write, although I do applaud your presence of mind to use spell check. Most locals loose sight of the importance of spelling in all the excitement of typing with one finger down at the public library, which 'yall' only go to for free internet access so you can file your weekly certification for unemployment. I'm willing to bet you the equivalent of your next unemployment check that your life can be summed up more or less in the proceeding way.
-First name is either Tammy, Tracy, Kayla, Kaylyn, Kourtney, Tiffany, or Tosha.
-Middle name is definitely Lynn.
-Last name is Ray, Cook, Lee, Greene, or Trivette.
-Half permed, half straight, bleach-blonde hair snaking towards your waist with about 3 inches of natural brown roots attempting to escape your flaky scalp, which is still red from the bucket of hydrogen peroxide you dipped your skull in 3 months ago (hence your 3 inch roots..)
-Excessive eye shadow/mascara/foundation to hide your insecurities from the same people that you hope still perceive you as one of Avery Counties finest.
-You have unnecessarily long finger nails which you routinely chip and break when fighting with your ex husband...speaking of which...
-You married your high school sweetheart, Daryl, when you were 17, not because he had a Hemi, not because you hated your Dad(you did/do hate him but it 'ain't his fault, he can't help beating you and Momma when he is drunk'), and not because his Daddy owned a couple acres of Christmas Trees; but because once you were pregnant with Daryl's second child, he just shrugged and mumbled "Hell, we might as well go down to the courthouse and make this official"
-You live next to your parents, and both of your trailers are on your grandparents property.
-The restraining order you placed on Daryl after he threatened you and your kid's lives with a rake and a rusty lawn gnome is about to expire next month, unfortunately around the time he is to be paroled from Avery Corrections, where he has been for 9 months for selling the Oxy's he stole from your grandmother to an undercover officer in a school zone.
-You have been fired from Ingles, Dollar General, Valero, Sugar Mountain, and/or Beech Mountain, for cussing at your boss(es) when they confronted you about chain smoking Cheyenne full flavors on the clock.
-You think Obama is a foreign born Muslim who hates whitey and wants to steal your musket and blunder-horn.
-You and your 5 children guzzle through twelve packs of Mountain Dew Code Red, Sun Drop, RC Cola daily.
I'll end with this: wrestling is fake and NASCAR is God's least favorite.

It's not NC barbeque, but there's good Texas 'cue and ribs and smoked sausage at the Bayou restaurant in Banner Elk. I agree that Frontier is too expensive, and you never know when they are open!

I tried it with my family and we won't be back. Pricing isn't attractive and what is served just isn't Southern or NC BBQ that I've eaten at dozens of places all over NC, SC and GA. Back to Woodlands or even Bandanas.
