Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Not just whistling Dixie

No, that isn't Dueling Banjos you hear in the background. What it is is the Dukes of Hazzard horn that plays Dixieland.

Hat tip to Sworn Enemy for the Yankee vs. Dixie quiz.

I'm guessing anyone who knows me would know which side I fall on and which Army of Dad falls on.

Hubby: 48 percent Yankee
Me: 82 percent Dixie

Only 82 percent? Damn Yankees must have formulated it.

A little off the subject, but Army of Dad was watching some hunting show last night and make me wonder:
Why do hunters wear camouflage if they're in a deer blind? Shouldn't they be wearing something that looks like 2x4s if they're going to do that?

Been invited to a safari-themed party this Saturday night. What, exactly, does one wear to a safari party? Do I dress like Crocodile Hunter's wife Terri or what?

    Here is what I got:

    "95% (Dixie). Is General Lee your father?"

    What is odd is that I don't have a strong Texas accent...unless I want to , depending on the environment.

    I remember saying pop growing up. That changed when I moved to PA and the kids made fun os us for saying pop. From then on it was soda.

    I grew up calling all carbonated beverages coke. For example, if friends came over:
    What kind of a coke do you want?

    I learned the error of my ways in high school while working at a movie theater. I asked a co-worker, a gal originally from Missouri, that question. It took her a few moments to process what I meant and then it dawned on me what I was doing. I have NEVER done it since then. Now I call it soda or pop. Mostly soda.
