Well, he does a pretty good job mimicking a country boy accent, one yankee "yous guys" would have had him escorted off island in a skinny minute! He also greets all the locals by name and constantly makes the rounds checking on everyone. On occasion he even goes in the kitchen and cooks himself! (Those skrimps were great Friday by the way, thanks!)
