    Grew up in northern Florida, which might as well be an extension of southern Georgia. Now that I've moved away I keep my Southern roots alive by talking like a redneck for fun (extra funny coming from a Mexican girl ), and by remembering all the good southerners I got to know in the 18 or so years I lived there. Oh and I generally request they "Play some Skynnyrd" at any concert I attend. Hell yeah!
    You are Southern girl. That always gets played don't it?
    I love being Southern because I like the way everyone is nice and helpful but then you have the backwoods rednecks and uneducated people that ruin it for us. Oh, and all the fatty food, it's so good but damn if it isn't bad for you.

    Oh I love being from the South! I love the charm, the small towns, everybody knowing everybody, Momma, apple pies, crawfish etouffe, gumbo, sitting our crazies on the porch for everybody to see, attics, camping, lace curtains stirring, hot breeze, tea on the porch, chickens waking you up, dogs running around IN the yard/outside, creeks, skinny dipping, good old southern baptist churches (where they have the best sanging ever), cut off jeans, schools that have K-12 in one school, homemade wine, popcorn that ain't from the microwave - my momma still shakes that pot and pops it herself, all the things McJag said and laying awake at night and listening to the crickets chirp, the frogs croak and the mosquitoes buzz while you're nice and comfy behind nothing but a damned screen because it was safe where I grew up and we literally NEVER locked a door or shut a window.

    No, he's not a Cajun, but he does have one sexay drawl... He hates the way he sounds, but I love it! He says I sound like a yankee, which is *not* a compliment 'round these parts. I guess it's because I've lived in other places, and I've studied languages a lot, so maybe I've neutralized myself, but I would HATE to think that I don't have a southern accent! (I probably do, just not as much as other people, but I bet some of you would notice it immediately.) But yeah, southern accents are one of my favorite things about the South. When I lived away from it, my ears craved the sound.

    I love the way the South looks. I love the trees, especially. When I lived in California, the trees were so different... Oh, and the spanish moss on the oaks in South Carolina.... Gosh I love that.

Where you are welcome and fed outrageous dishes that fancy restaurants can only dream about.Where children still say "yes'm" and "yessir",men still rise when a woman returns to the table and elderly are adored. Every family has batty relatives & they are entertained with other guests without comment. No one is stashed away-we all have 'em. Where people say "What kind of Coke you want-Dr Pepper or Sprite". Laughter is a God-given right and telling stores is an art form.Where people love telling a good story on themselves and know Yankees underestimate us-leading to more laughter.Where you can walk in a store and leave feeling like the most beautiful person on earth-because they love to give compliments and mean every word-most of the time! With big ol' trees and pretty flowers are expected.Lord, for these and all other blessings we are grateful.
    Well, that's about it in a nutshell!
    I love that you know just about everyone. I would hate to live in a town or city where you can go all day and not run into one person you know.
    I love the "good" redneck side of the south. Going out to the lake, swimming, fishing, riding 4 wheelers. Cooler full of beer, and when it starts to get dark, lighting up that fire.
    Walking barefoot in the summer. Hearing the "locusts" (cicaida) yelling in the trees. The frogs in the ditches. Crickets in the bushes. In the fall, the leaves start to turn and the air gets this smell, you just know that winter is coming. I love the silence of winter. You can sit out in the woods and hear nothing but the highway miles away.
    I know there are bad things that people associate with the south, and we do have a horrible history. But, just because you grow up there, doesn't mean you believe that or live that lifestyle. There are things that happened that I am thoroughly ashamed of, but I would not live another place on earth.

    I grew up in a place that the north considers the south, and the south considers the north!! Maryland. The best thing about it was the food. Everything is good

    Also forgot how nice it is to tell the seasons by what is planted. You know that spring is right around the corner when they start plowing the fields. You know that summer is here because the crops are up and the irrigation stands can be seeen in every field. You know that fall is right around the corner because the cotton is opening up, the soybeans are turning, the corn and milo are turning. It is just so nice to see that. There is nothing like a field of cotton, where every bit has opened up...a big field of white. As close as we get to snow around here

    How can someone not consider Virginia to be in the South when 2 capitals of the Confederacy were here? Not to mention all these famous Civil War generals and the Museum of the Confederacy?

    I consider Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina the south. Also Kentucky and Tennessee...just not the "deep south"...

    Or their grits or rice

    I tell you, some of the nicest people I have ever met were in Kentucky. We went there for our honeymoon, and they were just the nicest people, and the country is beautiful.

    So, someone tell me about South Carolina! An online community I belong to is planning next year's get-together for Myrtle Beach, likely May or June (we've done two already, Vegas and Toronto). I know Myrtle Beach is a tourist spot, but we may rent a car and do some travelling around as well. Any must-sees in that area?

    I've only ever had a couple of mint juleps in my life -- at a fancy hotel when I visited New Orleans the first time, and at a private home in Atlanta -- and they weren't really to my liking. I'm not a big bourbon fan. But I always associate them with the South through literature and myth, I guess.

    I still make my popcorn on the stove most of the time, except when I'm dieting and then I do the air popped version. The rural Southern life sounds very much like my childhood on the Canadian prairie, except that where you had intense heat, we had intense cold. Otherwise the small-town culture sounds pretty much the same. I'm so glad I had that kind of childhood. I feel blessed by it, in fact.

    I am from North Carolina and I have never heard of people putting sugar in their corn bread, rice or grits. That sounds nasty. yuck.

    That's right Virginia is considered a Southern state. Virginia also had the most Civil War battles, almost quadrupling every other Confederate state with a total of 123. Growing up in VA, I learned all about the Civil War and went to many of the battle sites and museums so I know we're southerners.
