Spelling

In the photo editing listing, I used the word 'could've'. I have used it all my life, but spell check did not recognize it. It would let me do would've, but not could've. Go figure. My school teacher friend in Alaska used to shake her head at my 'southern language'. She finally asked me why we did not learn proper English grammar in the South. I told her that we learned it in school, we just chose not to use it with each other. Sort of like deaf students learn the proper way to sign English, but sign American Sign Language (ASL) with each other because it is their true language. We southerners have our own language. he-he
I have lived in so many place, I my accent is all out of shape, I have trouble being understood now that I am back home. At the same time, if any one else hears me, they ask me where in the south I am from.
My most favorite word in the south is: Jevver = did you ever. Jevver hear anything so silly in your life?

When our kids were small they were always wanting to "plake"......that is interpreted to mean "play like"....."Let's 'plake' we're firemen!"....or whatever they wanted to pretend they were that day! We've laughed about it now that they're grown up.
