This is a group for people to talk like they would normally talk to their neighbors. Using their normal words, including real words like ain't & cain't.
If it sounds rite, rite it down. Don't be sheered to show off yer spellin'. Have fun with it.
Just remember, some folks actually do talk like this. I do.

What did them news folks say?

Them news folks said it. I heard 'em.
"According to a study conducted over a 20 year period, red meat is a contributing factor in breast cancer".
Then they went on to say that over the past 20 years that this study's been goin' on, that there was 7 more women showed signs of breast cancer in women who ate red meat than there was in women who didn't eat red meat.
Now women, I ain't tellin' ya not to be concerned. But, they didn't say how many women they studied over them past 20 years.
I ain't no math whiz but I think I can figger this out.
If they studied 100 women who ate red meat & 100 women who didn't eat red meat, &, only 7 women got breast cancer out of the red meat bunch, that's 7%.
If they studied 1,000 women on each side, & only 7 got breast cancer, that's 1%.
I might be wrong, but, I think ever'body's got the cancer cells in 'em. It's jist that, some people get it & some don't.
What do you think?

Love this group

I was raised in Northwest corner of the country mainly, then lived in Kansas my high school years. I have mostly lived in Georgia my adult life. I have really picked up the accent and it flies when I'm around someone who is -as my boys say- "real country".

Howdy Ever'body.
I'll start this off by tryin' to give you a few lines to show you how to talk like I normally talk.
I don't talk like someone who has written a book. I don't want to come across as "better than anyone else". I'm not. I'm just me.
I ain't no better than the next feller. I talk like this 'cause it's the way I wuz taut to talk. Ever'body talked like this where I wuz raised.
Skin color don't mean a thing to me. We all bleed the same color.
To give a better example of the normal way I talk, watch "Gunsmoke" & listen to Festus Hagen. That's what I normally sound like. It's hard to describe on here when yer tryin' to.
Let's just have fun as we talk to each other about whatever we talk about.
Now, who wants to get started?
