"Talking Country" -- Smell the Flires?

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.

Catch y'all later!
