Picking

Gunny sack

You bet'cha I say you bet'cha!

We also have roofs...like Ruhf...not rooof.
We have creeks, not cricks.
We also eat tomatoes, not tomahtoes.

Keep 'em comin'!

I thought only my St. Louis and vicinity relatives "warshed" the clothes.
They drink "sodi-pop"
I didn't really think anyone east of IL warshed anything.
When I lived in Indiana a year, they "ran the sweeper" when they vaccuumed.
And when asked a the grocery store if they had any frozen tortellini, they reply,
"Turtle-what!?!?"
I can't type that accent.

I vacuum...and sweep and dust. I also vacuum the carpet, but some older folks around here vacuum the rug.

Yes Radar was supposed to be from Ottumwa. James said that they had a big "M*A*S*H Day" celebration in Ottumwa one year. They invited the M*A*S*H actors to come for it. The only one who refused to come was "Radar!"

I was born and raised in Des Moines Iowa and we sweep the floor with a vacume sweeper, and a crick is still a crick. Soda is acceptable for pop, and we mash the starter on the car to start it . and some of us Iowaowins still go courtin with my sweety. Pigs are called hogs and they make the smell of money to a farmer to every body else they stink. Cows are called a milk factory and a steer is T. Bone on the hoof. and we do not talk of sheep we are a beef, pork, and corn state and very proud of it.

Isn't funny how you were raised 2 1/2 hours from me and we talk differently! Could be a generation gap to blame as well!

St. Louis is only an hour an a half from here, and "you bet'cha" we speak differently. We do "warsh" clothes (fortunately not on a scrub board like my grandma) and run the sweeper.

Dave, have you ever been out in a cornfield on a still, hot, humid summer night to hear the corn grow? You can actually hear it pop and rustle as it grows.
