It's a Southern Thang - September 23rd

Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

As I mentioned before, my dad grew up in the South. Near Meridian Mississippi. Because of him, even though I grew up in San Diego, when I get tired or sick, I speak with a Southern accent. My grandma would cook me rabbit for lunch (which she killed that morning) and serve it with sweet tea. I learned that RC Cola and a Moon Pie is an acceptable meal. And y’all is a term you hear from people that care about you.


And I know all y'all are just jealous. Bless your hearts. Maybe y'all never enjoyed grits. Or a Moon Pie. I just want you to know that I have sympathy for the less fortunate like yourselves.


But for those that aren’t aware of what it is like to be Southern, take a gander (take a look) at some of these:

Hi Rocky - that first one is a great advertisement for Chick Fil A but they are all funny.

Rocky, I share your sentiments on southern living. 

I passed thru Meridian dozens of times on my way from Housing to Columbus, MS to work at a Mead Paper Plant while I was an Engineer. I know exactly what you mean in your blog

Good morning, Rocky... I have to admit... I've never craved a Chick-Fil-A on any day. In fact, I've never eaten a Chick-Fil-A or been in one of their stores.

Good morning Rocky. Wher can I get those "Chick-a-derm" patches? It is no longer just a Southern-thang! Enjoy your day.

Haha, I've never had Chick Fil-A but one of my sons was visiting and wanted to get some, so we drove there (about 20 minutes one way). As we were nearing the place, he said, "hmmmmm... that's weird, the drive up is usually jammed" and then he said, "OHHHHHH, it's SUNDAY!" haha.

Hi Rocky- I'd never had a Chick-fil-A until I moved back to Houston (where it's a thang!) You should see the lines!!! And I have to admit...I am no food snob and the stuff is pretty darn good!!!

Rocky, these are so funny. Growing up I spent part of my time in TN, home of the moon pie so yes I know what those are. I'm sure I had RC Cola at some point but we didn't drink a lot of soda. And grits were a Sunday morning staple along with biscuits and gravy, ham or bacon and eggs.  Here in NC they serve shrimp and grits which are delicious. But, I've never eaten rabbit. 

My step mom was from Jackson MS and she was an amazing cook. These days I don't eat many "southern style" foods, they do bring back good memories.
