Welcome Ya'll

Welcome to the Deep South where the tea is always sweet and the blood sugars tend to run high.

Grab a rockin' chair and have a seat on the porch. I'll pour you up a glass of iced tea (sweetened with Splenda these days) and we will chat a spell...

I'm blessed to be living in Oklahoma, where summer starts in June, we don't have fireflies, we have "lightnin bugs", we don’t have mud bugs or crawfish we have "crawdads", meat and "taters" is mandatory, ya'll is a proper noun, chicken is always fried, biscuits comes with gravy, sweet tea is the house wine, where you bleed in crimson and cream and you would never ever disrespect your elders.

Well I was guess it was mostly just to shoot the breeze and talk about whatever. But yeah, I think we have all been a little neglectful of this page....
