    As a spin-off of my dear friend HarlansHollowFarm's thread, let's list the reasons it's a GOOD thing to live in the South. I'll start.

    Reason #1 - we don't have to shovel our snow, we just wait for the next day when it'll melt. [​IMG]

    Gee, there are some many reasons!
    The people are friendly, the food is great, the winters are short and mild(in the Deep South), slower pace of life...
    It's all good! [​IMG]

    LOL, there are OTHER things we get to shovel frequently.......

    But I do love living in the south for the most part. I'm on the coast, so freshly caught seafood is a huge bonus.

    Despite the reputation for being a bunch of hicks, I find most people here are well educated, polite and willing to help anyone, anytime.

    Everyone says "Ma'am" and "Sir" and of course "Y'all" - it's so nice! I love the South!

    You don't have to hear someone order "pop" when they are thirsty. [​IMG] I don't know why that word bothers me so much.

    I would comment on the weather here but that would be on the negative side. [​IMG]

    Edited to add: can't forget the gravy! [​IMG]

    Quote:[​IMG] Yep. When Keith went to the gun shop yesterday I had to send him a text to remind him to come home. I just knew when he left that he was going to get involved in a "bovine fertilizer seminar". On the other hand, if you want your DH out of the house for awhile, send him to the farmer's co-op for a little something. [​IMG]
