I am from the south. I was born in NW Tennessee about 120 miles east of Memphis and 120 miles west of Nashville. I was born in the upstairs office of the only MD in the town of where we lived, aprox 2000 souls. My mother came home the same day she gave birth to me and my crib was the same bed I was conceived in. I drank Pet milk from a can and smashed peas. Other than a couple years in Arkansas, I was raised in Louisiana. From the age of 7 until the age of 54 I was in Louisiana. I am 59 now and back in Tennessee close to my one and only child and my first grand baby (9mos). My son was born in North East Louisiana about 2 blocks over from the Duck Dynasty guys. I graduated at the University of Louisiana (Monroe) in 1980 and worked in North Louisiana until 2000 when I was promoted and transferred to S.E. Louisiana below New Orleans. I traveled extensively out side the south with my job but have never lived above the Mason-Dixon Line

  • The south has 3 (three) regions with each region having sub-regions. First, there is the upper south with N. Carolina as an example. Second, there is the middle south with Tennessee as an example. Last, there is the deep south with Louisiana as an example. The deep south is where I consider home. The gulf states of S.W. Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Western panhandle of Florida. Kentucky is not a southern state and Florida is not even a part of the USA. The people in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama south of a line from Birmingham, Jackson and Alexandria believe that they are the “real south” and consider anyone living above them to be Yankees. Now please do not take me wrong. There is nothing wrong with being a Yankee. Well, there is one thing on second thought. A Yankee is more than welcome to come south spend their money here, pick up a little culture and have fun. A ” DAMNED YANKEE” will not go home. Just a few words to live by were I come from:



Remember, in the south you are not a man until your father tells you that you are. You can never be called Mr. as long as your father is alive or you have his permission. If you want someone to love you with out conditions besides your momma, get a dog. If you want to be the man. You have to beat the man. Bless his heart translates to he is a special kind of stupid. More teaching on the way. until then, that sound you here is me leaving or I’m a gone pecan or out of here toot sweet (quick, fast and in a hurry)

  1. Well….your new Chawee is, I guess, a Yankee. I was always warned to stay away from those South Carolina boys. (I didn’t listen and I paid dearly.) I actually have two bonafide Yankees in my family. Two of my children were born in Philadelphia. I have always called them my little “damn Yankees.”
    I fed my children Pet condensed milk from the can…half water and half milk.
    I read your information and I thought “this is my kind of man”…until I got to the part about plus sized women. Oh, well. We can’t all be voluptious, I guess.
    And….I love to use the term “bless your heart.” People actually think you’re being kind. LOL

    1. The last thing you are is a Yankee. What I mean about plus size women is that I do not judge a women by her looks. I never have. My father taught me that. I notice a women’s swagger before anything else. I have never raised my hand to a women and in 23 years I never cheated on my wife. My father taught me that the only time a women walks behind a man is when there is danger ahead. I take that very seriously. Most males today make me ashamed. I show them no tolerance. I consider myself a gentleman Males call a strong women a bitch, I call them attractive. Listen girlfriend, you got creole class swagger. I will have your back in a bar fight anytime. you are my female clone. I love the hudu that udo like voodoo !!!
