Welcome Sailorman! Finally someone else that says, "ya'll." I wondered if you were from GA when I read your psot about Lewis Grizzard. I am your neighbor in Alabama. We are happy you joined us. I love my Kindle too.

Bye ya'll  ;D

Thanks for the welcome.

Only one problem with your "ya'll"; of course "ya'll" is our southern slang for "you all". So the apostrophe goes between "you" and "all", making it "y'all" instead of "ya'll". I insist.

Just kidding. Roll Tide!
Oops wrong team for this gal! I am WAR DAMN EAGLE all the way even as we search for a new coach. I will be rooting For AL in the Sugar Bowl though. After my Kindle and reading my next favorite pastime is SEC football.

Glad you joined us!

HEY, Sailorman!

Spent 9 years in NC and enjoyed many of their unique words and/or phrases.

In Illinois, Hey usually means someone is in trouble..... Hey, watch what you are doing.
In NC Hey meant: Why hello there.  How are you and the family?

Does GA do  "Hey" in the friendly form?

Hi, Sailorman -

Glad to have you here and that you've been poking around the site a bit.

I'm sure the other guys will welcome another addition to their numbers  ;)

How did you hear about the Kindle?

Yes, we seldom use "hello" except when answering the phone, even then if you have one of them caller id things and know who you're going to be talking to it's "hey". "Hi" hardly is ever used. Just at fancy parties and such when you're talking to people who wear French-cuffs and lift their pinkies while drinking "beverages". They might take your "hey" as somehow making them common.

But for us regular folks, "hey" is the accepted greeting. Probably more than you wanted to know, but, hey, thanks for the warm welcome. :)
Cute.

Sailorman as in government employee? If so, we owe you a debt of gratitude for your service. Thank you!
