Reminds me of that old classic line that Jimmie Carter used at the end of
his campaign speeches (in the South) when he was running for president. He
would say, "Wouldn't it be nice to elect someone to the white house who did
not speak with an accent?"
We all talk different from each other. And outsiders do sound and look
When I called Leigh jigs a couple of days ago the girl who helped me on
the phone had the most delightful Canadian accent, almost
Minnesooooatan. I fell in love, sight unseen!
When I complimented her on it, she said I was aboot to say the same
<30 years younger and I was ready to board the next plane> :)
My favorite accent of all is a Scots ... not surprising, one of my

"All y'alls" is plural possessive.

signify completion. It may be woodworking or metalworking related too. I was
never sure how many "alls" you could have.
"Alls ya' have to do is..."
I like the one that voids it all, the picture and the caption that we
in the USA call our selves Americans and the whole article of pictures
states How Canadians know you'er an American.
DOH! We know we are Americans and so do the Canadians.
