LMAO..ok that wasnt fair.I think the guy with glass's is a 2nd cousin of mine..lol..thats not where im from not enough southern 'twang' you would need subtitles.
Now its funny if most of my 25 uncles and aunts were alive and most of my many many many cousins had not left i could live where i was brought up.
But the uncles and aunts are mostly gone and 90%
of the cousins got the hell out.
We are moving and as nyc said we are coming i have to say i love the conversations that have been posted,well most._Lol_ i dont think we will hate it. we were country before country was cool

Mr. Jones,
You would lose that bet, there are racists here, but it's not everyone. If everyone here were a racist then the dues to my racist club wouldn't be as high as they are.
You also shouldn't come here because of all the groups we at the racist club hate, the group we hate most are tourists.
I'll get back to you when we move to Ellington and we will give due consideration to your application to join our racists club, Ellington Chapter.
Sincerely,
NYC Racist for Now.

p.s. my apologies to Bob DeDe I can no longer sustain the ruse now that I've been outed by Mr. Jones.

As a " Damn Yankee " myself,I am one of the first people to welcome you here. I'm sorry for some of these rude posts but I know that you both will be able to handle it,
Again " Come on down ", I know people who are important in the community will welcome you with open arms. Good luck with your move.

Wow what a handle 'spearchucker' yeah riiiight.
NYC thats okay we can convert you,just get some fishing gear and you can become converted while you sit in a lawn chair at our lake and fish.
Never even thought of the poor fish.I wonder how shocked they will be when my wife catch's them.
Im certain they will back to their frinds and tell
me there's a black person fishing the lake.
No you see how silly that last paragragh sounded,thats how racist sound to me when they talk
completey out of touch.Difference is that was
meant to be funny.There's NOTHING funny about racism.
I do love the fact that most people want good people in the town,thats why we know we will be fine.Anything worth having is worth working for.

Bob DeDe,
the 90 acres we bought has 2 small ponds, one stocked one not.

no idea what type of fish.

what will be one of the only hardships of leaving the coastal area is i've become quite the fan of salt water fish.

i especially like the way my wife fixes cod and whiting ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whiting_%28fish%... ).

i'm sure i'll get used to fresh water fish again.

Don't come here. You will hate it. You already have a chip on your shoulder and folks will pick up on that stinking racist vibe you emit. Once this happens they WILL hold it against you and your family.Then you will be on here telling everyone who will listen what a bunch of racist everyone is who lives in the Mid-West. Seen it a million times. Guess we will see it a million and one times soon.

Okay Mr.Jones no one here has shown any 'chip' on the shoulder attitude.In fact it has been the opposite.
You have an obvious issue,but it is your issue.You alone have told us not to come many others have urged us to come.One person is not a town or community.
Please if you could be so kind to point out the
'stinking racist vibe' you picked up on.I just the entire post and i am drawing a blank.

Hmm thats a good idea.We need a little break.
We both love to bass fish,maybe get a little fishing in as well.
We bought a place in Centerville 5 years ago. The locals treat us like family. There is a real nice quaint small inn in Centerville you can stay at. Do not remember the name but it is up on Buford St.

Simple just like YOU. The title and the Original post. Me and several other do not like being labeled due to the geographic location of where we reside. And that is just what you did ,OPer, when you carelessly posted you original post. So stop trying to back out of your obvious lack of being able to restrain your RACIST feelings! Racist jerk! It is CLEAR you are posting from different locations to appear as two different posters.

change comes slowly to them there hills what with foreigners moving in. a few stay more than two or three years,most don't.
many who leave early say they can't handle the mentality or culture shock especially those from east or west coast. the change way too great and growing your own vegetables is a fantasy far more fun dreaming about it is a recliner than actually grubbing in the rocks, mud, and ticks.
there was a reason this place was settled by the most ignorant settlers in the early 1800s while the smarter ones chose land a bit more fertile and hospitable.

but a few stay on around here a lifetime, more so every year.

transplanted old timer.

Here is prime example of Carter County mentality. If you like this kind of thinking and find it stimulating conversation then you should fit right in.
If you prefer a little more in depth in communicating with your neighbor check some of stats of various other areas as there are many not so subtle differences in local mentality. Here the sheriff goes to jail for allegedly breaking in houses, stealing and meth dealing plus too many examples to mention. Typical Carter County mentality.

I'm just honest with the following comments... Wayne, Carter, Ripley, Shannon and Reynolds counties are not ready for change... racially or socially. There are many mixed couples in Butler county, however. I don't mean to be the bad guy here, but there are no mixed racial couples in the formentioned counties. Just being honest with you Bob and nyc. I was not born or raised in the Ozarks, but I do live in southern Reynold's county. Although, responses to your question has been favorable, this area is still more divided than diverse. no criticism intended...
That is not true. There are a few mixed race couples in Wayne County and Reynolds County.

I don't know who is saying the nearest McDonald's is in Poplar Bluff, but they are wrong. There is one in Piedmont, and one in Van Buren.

That's all we're after is a quiet spot.
We think Ellington will be that place.
Let us hope Ellington doesn't become trendy or we will be up to our butt's in hipsters. Ironic twits.
Trust me, Ellington will never become trendy.
