Re: Whut...

Bob,

Welp...set a spell and I'll spin ye some yerns. Thisshear's the story:

So, we spent Thanksgiving (me, husband, mom, dad) at my sister's (with her husband and my nephew) in Pikeville. Eating too much food, exploring the hills, etc. (They just moved to KY from West Virginia.)

But, you see...I've got deep family roots down in these parts. I torment my mother, who is 50% hillbilly, by referring to this element of our heritage as her "Appalachian Family Wreath" - trees have branches / forks, of course - wreaths just keep going around and around and around... We also make plenty of jokes about "BYOS Churches" - that is, "Bring Your Own Snake." Muahahaha!

So, I guess you could say that in addition to celebrating Thanksgiving with family, we were celebrating our "ethnic heritage" in eastern Kentucky. :)

Re: Whut...

What in tar-nation?

Another hero shot? I reckon that just goes
to show ya - you can never judge a book by
its cover. Lots of "vittles" for you?

"Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed;
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin' at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin' crude."

Happy Holidays, Sarah!

Re: What in tar-nation?

SO, you look at a picture of me and suggest I've had lotsa vittles? Are you saying those jeans make my assets look big? Larry, you are married - you know better than to even hint such things to a female without risking bodily harm to yourself.
