I have watched so much Beverly Hillbillies lately I don't know if they are part of my natural vocabulary or not. I do "reckon" from time to time. Also, I have noticed that people in the southwestern United States do not know where "over yonder" is nor do they know what a "dog trot house" is.
I know everyone of those terms. Bless your heart! ()
