Good Morning!! I am so happy to have the yard sale behind me that I am not yet thinking about the 35 family members that will be at my house this weekend for our family reunion. At least I am trying not to thing about it!
I want to share something I received yesterday from a little 96 year old lady at our church. Along with a friend she had made up a list of "mountain speech" that use to be heard so much in our area. It actually still is. Here are some of my favorites:
Don't bite off more than you can chew.
I'll put the quietus on her.
I'm goinna tan that youngun's hide.
That man ain't got no gumption.
Quit a carryin' on like a cat with with a sore tail.
One good thing you can say about the devil - he ain't lazy.
That mean womern's going to gether come-up-pance one day.
That boy's hell bent for trouble.
What's one man's meat is another man's poison.
I feel kinda discomboberated today.
There may be snow on the roof, but there's far in the chimmney below.
She's was madder 'n a old, wet sttin' hen.
He's too lazy to hit a lick at a snake at a snake if it was a fixin' to bite him.
And my favorite,
A hard head makes a sore behind.
I love the colorful way people in different areas of the country speak. If you need any translations let me know.
So I'll "see" you tomorrow -- The good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise.
