"Son of a gun"

Another angle on this one… A Southernism I’ve heard reference to more than once goes, “My daddy was a pistol, and I’m a son of a gun.” Pistol, of course, being an epithet for a hell-raiser. No ideas on where this originated, but that’s what we’ve got Cecil for, right? <g>

This should be moved to the “Mailbag” MB.

The Mailbag forum remains a mystery for many.

Unfortunately, the monitors can’t move threads… only delete and edit.

Kaz, would you like to post this in the forum called COMMENTS ON CECIL’S MAILBAG ?
