Default Southern Comfort

There is a "hot" thread going on in the Boaters Forum about oversize (width) boats being trailored. A guy named Harry is quoting law etc. Since my boat is 8'6" I don't have a dog in that fight ,and besides, everything that could be said was said in the 1st 20 comments. It is now on page 7. I figured I'd just read some of the "interesting" comments and keep still. That is, until Harry began to rag on southerners.

I was born and lived in the north for over 50 years until I took early retirement and moved to Dixie. I've been here for 6 years and have never looked back. One of the nicest compliments I have received came from a native Southerner who said " You were raised in the North, but you got here as soon as you could".

I won't trash the North - I have many wonderful friends there - but the other day I was traveling slowly in heavy traffic and stopped to let someone enter from a parking lot. Within a second or two the guy behind me was leaning on his horn. I could not help but to say to myself " Mister, you must be from the North". And, I love that bumper sticket that says, " I really don't care how you did it up North".

The folks in the South are friendly and have their priorities right. I am proud to reside amoung them. Maybe in a gereration or two I'll be one.

dija, as a natural born southern boy, I'd like to say "Thank you, sir, for the compliments".

You're the kind of damn Yankee we love.

I have yet to see a thread go past 3 pages that did not result in someone getting pissed off at someone else . . . longer threads tend to be those that draw emotion from the members, hence the pissing contests . . . anyways, that is the way I see it . . . trolls are another story and Harry is not a troll

Remember, we all have something that pulls our strings . . . I get really pissed when someone does not trailer properly ie not properly tie down their boat . . . no real safety chains etc. . . . WHY, my best friend lost his son to a boat that flew off a trailer and hit him while he played in front of his house.

Capt Rick........Tastycakes aren't even as good as they were years ago.......I remember when they were made fresh , no preservatives and stayed on the shelves for a few days before the tastycake delivery guy came back and took the old ones and put new ones out ...there were at least 10 different kinds of pies and about 12 different kinds of cakesand they were ONLY .10 or .12 cents to purchase,,,,,I still can taste them lemon pies and chocolate juniors.....BTW I was "CREATED" in the south but was born up north..I migrated back to the south a few years ago....just wonderin what what catagory I fall into ?...Hummmmm..........

Well, I'll be joining you in a few months (actually in the Charleston area) with much the same situation. After much research and a visit, we both decided we loved the area and the attitude. Hope to meet some new friends on the water.

There are aholes in the North and aholes in the South. There are also nice people in both. Generalizing doesn't do anyone any favors. I'll tell you this though, a girl with a Southern accent is sexier than one with a Boston or New York accent.

How many time do I have to tell ya'll that it ain't PC to use the word Yankee anymore? Its "Heritage Disadvantaged". A yankee is a quickie that you can do yourself.

Ron, congratulations on your new move. Charleston is a terrific city- you will love it. Our daughter and family live in Summerville and we go up often. There is great fishing in the area. Enjoy your retirement. RC

Shag, I appreciate you fillin' me in on that boo boo I made.

But, technically I think that a yankee is the person/thang being yanked, as opposed to the yankER bein' the one doin' the yankin'
