And just what's the problem heah?
How many folks has anybody ever seen or even heard of that retire to the north.
Just come on down with lots of $$$, enjoy our mild winters, superior food and fall in love with our lifestyle, then retire here.
Just chill, it'll get done directly.

I can't stop laughing at this one. I have heard that so many times that I have lost count, and most ended in trips to the ER. The one that comes to mind first was when a neighbor boy shouted to my son and his other friend, "Hey ya'll, watch this!" He had my dd5 on the low end of the see saw and jumped off the slide onto the high end of it. She shot across the yard and broke her arm. My husband's lasts words before this even were, "She'll be fine in the back yard with those boys. Don't worry." Of course they first thing out of the boy's dad's mouth when I told him what happened was "how how'd she git". It wasn't funny then, but we sure laugh about it now.

My favourite... I e-mailed to several members of David's family. I tell them that just because they were born in the South, that don't make them a Southerner and just because they were born in FL that don't make them a Native.
