From Dad...

Things I've learned about Tennessee .....
Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Tennessee.
There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Tennessee,
plus a couple no one's seen before.
Squirrels will eat anything.
Unknown critters love to dig holes under tomato plants.
Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they
are ripe.
If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.
A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.
Onced and Twiced are words. (or onct or twicet)
It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.
Fire ants consider your flesh as a picnic.
People actually grow and eat okra.
Fixinto is one word.
A tank is a dirt hole in the ground that holds water for
irrigation, watterin' the cows, swimming, or a weekly bath.
There ain't no such thing as "lunch". There's only dinner and then
there's supper.
Iced Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it
when you're 2.
Backards and forwards means I know everything about you.
'Jeet? is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"
You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time
it is. You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.
Darn near everyone knows 5 or more cloud types (guess they got to
look'n out for them there ternayders-(translation: tornados)

More Tennesseeians...:
You know you're from Tennessee if:
1. You measure distance in minutes.
2. You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
3. Stores don't have bags; they have sacks.
4. You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one
in it, no matter what time of the year.
5. You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to go to the
store.(my pet peeve)
6. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit,
vegetable, grain, insect or animal
7. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave
both unlocked.
8. You carry jumper cables in your car ... for your OWN car.
9. You know what "cow tipping" is.
10. You only own four spices: salt, pepper, ketchup, and Tabasco.
11. The local papers cover national and international news on one
page but requires 6 pages for local gossip and sports.
12. You think that the first day of deer season is a national
13. You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit "a little warm."
14. You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still
and Christmas.
15. You know whether another Tennesseeian is from east, west, or
middle Tennessee as soon as they open their mouth.
16. Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite past-time known as "goin
wal-martin" or off to "Wally World."
17. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good
chili weather.
18. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop ... it's a
Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example "What kinna coke
you want?"
19. Fried Catfish is the other white meat.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based on a true story: Chuck Norris once swallowed a turtle whole, and when he crapped it out, the turtle was six feet tall and had learned karate.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
