Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: Re: Sore losers
I missed the interim messages.
Often when the "Damn Yankee" phrase was utilized in front of me, it was good
natured teasing. I walked and talked too fast for my friends, especially
shorter ones. It takes years, maybe generations, to develop the inborn sense of
needing to automatically slow down to protect oneself in a hot southern summer.
Many Southerners are polite to an extreme. The few who might mutter a
derrogatory "Damn Yankee!" under their breath but just in earshot are few enough to
be ignored. I love the South and thoroughly enjoy the company of Southern
ladies and gentlemen.

I think it's not so much the defeat, but rather the ongoing difference
in culture. As Lewis Grizzard said, "you can come down here and marry
our women and ride our horses and drink our whiskey, but DON'T tell us
how you used to do it in Cleveland."
