Round 'ere

Round 'ere you see a fellow on the side of the road with a rifle, your first thought is "I wonder if he's after a varmit or game?"
 
Round 'ere you see someone walking down the road you slow down to see if they need ya.
 
Round 'ere stopping by the feed store in the evening can be like a class reunion or family reunion.
 
Round 'ere the boy in the feed room is more likely to know what you need today than you are.
 
Round 'ere more folks still drive over to ask you a question than to call you on the phone or text you. 
 
Round 'ere if you are short at the checkout, that's okay....they know where you live.
 
Round 'ere more people opt for taking their vacation days to coincide with the Jasper trail ride than any holiday. 
 
Round 'ere the azalea, the redbud, the dogwood and the dew berries are all in bloom.
 
Round 'ere there is a yellow/green blanket on everything that stands still more than 30 minutes....it's called pine pollen.
 
Round 'ere people at the checkout keep you up to date on what others in your house have purchased so you don't duplicate yourself or run out. 
 
Round 'ere ain't no such thing as a set supper time.  It's just as soon as everyone gets inside after dark. 
 
Round 'ere even the youngsters recognize a load of crap when they see it or hear it.  Especially if it is something contrary to the Bible.
 
Round 'ere if you ain't got one you can borrow mine. 
 
Round 'ere is the ain't quite the same as any where else.  It may be to your taste and then again it may not.  But it's where I think I'll stay till they plant me in my plot.

  6. I love that Barbara!  It's so true - "There's no place like HOME!"

    And it sounds like a very nice place to be (except for that pine pollen - I am HIGHLY allergic).

    Have a good day!

  12. lol my Round'ere if some one is walking around with a rifle you take cover and call 911, if you say hi to the checker and use her name on her tag you get a weird look, if you dont call before you show up at some one's house it is considered rude, and around'ere its not quit spring yet, but thats ok.. we go can go threw all 4 seasons in one day LOL.

    Much Love,
    Mary

  18. 'Round there sounds like 'round 'ere!  lol  I especially liked the one about the checkout people knowing what others in the house have purchased so you don't duplicate.  We have a little grocery near here that Thomas and I are constantly running to, and they have actually done that before.
