Perhaps she was talking about a different kind than we Southern guys remember. Maybe give her the benefit of the doubt since she once lived in the North East and is just now learning the lingo. LOL
I bet she doesn't even know "Work from can to can't". She probably uses something like "toil from sunrise until sunset". No doubt does not know "shat the door" or "drap that thar oft" or "carry me over yander to the store". LOL
Yes, I'm still learning the lingo of the South. You folks have the most colorful descriptive language. I love it. When I first came here, people were talking about a holler, and I thought they meant shouting. I knew what "no count" meant...but I couldn't imagine where,when angry, someone would say, "I'll stomp a mudhole in your azz and walk it dry." Then I figured out how someone could literally stomp a mudhole in Kentucky's rather damp, clay ground. It took a couple of weeks for our neighbors to understand us and we, them, but eventually we got messages across. I know the difference between "redneck" and "plain country" now and when I think that I have mastered the lingo, someone comes up with another colorful phrase.

I didn't know hell was a proper noun, and even if it is I wouldn't take the effort to capitalize it just like I don't capitalize zionist or nazi or communist. I consider taking the effort to capitalize as a sign of respect, but there are just some words I have no respect for.
My oh my!!! I was just making a wisecrack toward the origninal poster, I never thought this little line would cause such a stir. Good grief. I do not respect the "h" place nor the inhabitant thereof, so please give me a break. Besides, I have an excuse. My hubby was an English professor before he retired, so I just absorbed grammatical style through osmosis. LOL. Please pay attention to LOL. It is not intended to be serious. Just to make myself clear, I DO NOT respect you know who.

I listen to him now and then. I agree that he comes off as a little "overzealous" or I'd also say crazy. lol But he often admits being severly ADD/ADHD so that doesn't help him much.:) You ought to try to read one of his books! lol I wasn't really listening too close this morning so I'm not sure what his stand is. I did catch the part about Al Gore selling his tv station to Al Jazeera. He refused to sell it to Glen Beck "because their ideology is so different." lol Yet he sells it to an enemy of the US which was founded on Arab "big oil"... even though he (Gore) is the big global warming guru that he is. Oh well, money talks... I suppose $500 million speaks very loudly. lol
You have to forgive Al Gore. He's just a simpleton! LOL

AW, I'm going to have to talk with Lala, when she wakes up from her nap. I can't believe she was on here talking about fracking. My, my.
LOL You are right!!!I just now figured out how you were interpreting "fracking." I usually don't use cuss words, but, not being perfect, I have fallen off the wagon from time to time. However, the euphemism that we would have used up North is "friggin." LOL

LOL AW, you're probably right. I forgot about Lala being a former Northener. So many Northern folks moving Southward, the court systems are soon have to hire a Hillbilly/Yankee interpeter to go along with the Spanish one. LOL.
You're right. When I moved down here, we ran into people from our old neighborhoods up North. In addition, the moving company people asked me what is going on in central Kentucky. Apparently, they had lots of recent customers from up North moving to this ares. I told them that the secret of the slower pace of life and the beauty of the region was finally getting out. I surely hope that not too many people invade this corner of the country, but I have noticed that in the past 15 years, there has been a huge buildup of population here. Hope that this place doesn't lose its country charm with too many people coming here to live.

Dumber than a coal bucket, smarter than a box of rocks, slicker than a greased pig, colder than a well digger's azz, as dead as a dog, as slow as molasses in winter, and the one that I am always tagged with "as stubborn as a mule". LOL

True, Northern people are moving here too. Years ago a bunch of Hippies bought up some land here. It took law enforcement forever to find out the reason they were such happy Hippies. LOL. They really didn't bother anyone and were friendly. They were peaced out most of the time. Hehehe.

I think those phrases are universal. We had those up North, too. The only place up North that is like Kentucky is Maine, particularly inland Maine. The only difference is that it gets colder than a well digger's azz. Mainers are very tough, country people. They don't "put on any airs." But you have to be very tough if you live there. The winter N'oreaster dumps snow measured in feet instead of inches. The summers there are beautiful and you can drive for miles before you come upon a farm or house. They have wonderful church suppers you can attend, with homemade food and pies that are so delicious that you can gain 10 pounds just looking at it. There are county fairs where you can eat "frydough" with powdered sugar and cinnamon, sample chowder and clam cakes, eat whole-bellied clams, enjoy harness horse races, and take the kids on amusement park rides. But it is a very short season and then you're right back to winter.

There are still a few left in Lebanon. They call themselves, the rainbow people
