Thread Name: Folklore: Where is Dixie
Subject: RE: BS: Where is Dixie
Ohhhhhh, the temptation for various puns.....

Spaw, it's hard enough living downwind of you, don't make me come up there!

Actually Bill, I joke a lot about being Southern, mainly because most of my ancestors were Southern, and I lived in Texas and Alabama - but Kentucky is not really considered truly Southern. There's the North, the South, and then there's Kentucky. Florida is less Southern than Kentucky, made up mostly of Yankees who moved there. Oh, the temptation for more jokes...

Back to Dixie - it's a state of mind as much as anything else. Spaw, do you remember the slogan of The Atlanta Constitution (newspaper) - "Covers Dixie like the dew"

Ebbie, I think we got into several discussions in one of the Joan Baez threads (The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.)
