13. The word 'jeet' is actually a phrase meaning, 'Did you eat?' *

23. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday. *

24. You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit 'a bit warm.' *

25. You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer, and
Christmas. *

26. Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite past time known as
'goin' Wal-Martin' or 'off to Wally World...' *

27. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees)
as good hog killin' weather. *

28. Fried catfish is the other white meat. *

29. We don't need no dang driver's ed. If our mama says we can drive, we

I learned the same things living in SC-LOL!
Not to mention-

You know what a "Piggly Wiggly" is.

Fried catfish is the other white meat.

Squirrels will eat ANYTHING.

And out of state friends beg you to send them fireworks.

LOL That's great! My Mom's from Alabama and she taught me to love Okra breaded and fried. The other great treat is cornbread broke up with some onion and soaked with buttermilk. Yum!

LOL I am not admitting to which happen or dont happen in this house, but I will say I would be better off listing what we dont do. After all DH was born and raised in Ga.
