{Seriously, is English your mother tongue?}


Yes, and she TAUGHT English. Actually, this is a class I learned to hate, in the day... but now actually see that others failed where I learned. OMG when it comes to anything electronically communicated these days... and you think I have typing/English issues? lol (I have a mirror to loan...)

a man who has been to Valdosta several times

Did you know the Courtoy family?


Well, like I said... have not been back in ~39 years and have no intention, want or need. I was only there for 4 years, 2 different HS's. Lowndes and Lanier County HS's. Lowndes County HS was 5k kids, 9-12th grades, in the late 70's. No idea these days.

Can't say I do... again, a loooong time ago. Also, Valdosta had a city HS and a county HS. Big rivalry! "County Sheriff along for protection" kinda rivalry. HS football was big when I was there. Which did they attend?

I will also ask: where are you located and where did you grow up? (city/state please) If one and the same, or even semi local, I would consider that a rather narrow field of view when it comes to slang from differing areas around our country/world... and how they're spelled.
