Everybody’s from somewhere. You know, the accents, etc.
Merlinders with their “youse” and so on. To say nothing of the Bronx or Queens. Or New England, now that I’ve moved.
I should talk. I have no accent. Pure American Broadcaster Country.
Except that one line of my ancestry started out Pennsylvania Dutch (talk about talking funny!) and came to Ohio by way of Maryland and Virginia.
And another line came up north more recently, meaning the 1880s, from the North Carolina Piedmont.
So, there. No, folks. This time, I’m keeping my mouth shut.
