Home again

We made it back. It was a great trip. The wedding(s) went off without a hitch, we had great weather, good times. The cabin we stayed in was very nice. The grouping of cabins each had a name, ours was “Paws a While.” I’m just glad it wasn’t the one called “Git R Done.” I didn’t need to hear that all weekend! Gotta love the south. Here’s the happy couple:

    No you don’t gotta love it. I recall the election mantra which goes that nobody can win in the south unless they pronounce shit with all four e’s in it. It is a silly place, but at least it can be a source of amusement for some. It has at least some greater natural beauty, but it’s people are alien. Good place to visit, wouldn’t want to live there.

    Me, either. Couldn’t stand the Confederate flags and racism-is-my-right attitude. There’s certainly some of that up here, but any more would be way too much. It was really pretty down there, though. Nice place to visit.

    I’ve always been pleasantly surprised by the south. I’ve not been in the “Deep” south, but Tennesse has always been kind to me.

    I think it all depends on whether you’re in a tourist trap or amid the locals, really. City vs. country’s the same anywhere, I guess. There are rednecks everywhere. Only in the tourist traps are they willing to profit by the label rather than be offended by it. We saw a t-shirt that said: “Paddle faster, I hear banjo music.” heehee.

    Tennessee is sorta weird. You have to remember it was basically occupied throughout the Civil War. ‘Yankees’ did some fine work reforming people, such that they now profit greatly by selling their ‘redneck’ behavior through tourism, country music, and nascar (the last two of which are personally repulsive, but at least very successful economically). As I recently pointed out to someone who had such a flag though, you guys did lose you know. Further south, they aren’t so quick to agree with me.

    Ah, fellow Ohioans. You speak as if Ohio is not ‘redneck’. All be it flattering, it is still far from the truth. While in Pittsburgh, I throroughly enjoyed listening to hometowners tell me in their Appalachian speak (Pittsburghese) how country I was. Heh.
