Our granddaughter recently spent a night with us, and accompanied me to the "Grill" to pick up dinner. She met and chatted comfortably with the nice folks who work there. After a few minutes the little first grader whispered "Nannum, what does 'y'all' mean?" I told her it stands for "you all." She thought about it for a second and matter-of-factly informed me that she didn't "speak country." Isn't that cute? I told her that "y'all" is southern, not necessarily countryspeak. Now "flires," on the other hand - that's country! The photo above depicts a few wild ones.
