Strange Relatives Southern Style

Recently I bought a bunch of books to jar my memory about what it is to be "southern".
If I had just waited a couple of weeks I could have saved my money and bookcase shelf space. This week-end at the National Storytelling Festival I heard a great description of "being southern" - -which sums up a lot of my experiences and peculiarities.

"Southerners trot out their strange relatives and tell stories about them>" Kathyryn Wyndham.

Ain't that the truth!

She went on:

"I know someday they will be telling stories about me - - so I am leaving a trail"

Think about it!

Get to work.

Telling or marking your trail.

Your choice

Me?

I'm telling!
