>From a conversation I had yesterday with a man in his 80s that I met on
the street; all this in a slow, unhurried Southern accent.
I used to work f' the Forestry Service, y'know. A man there - he must
be dead b'now - tole me once: "Never hire a man t'do a job o'work for
you who eats salt herrin' for breakfast, rolls his own cig'rettes, er
wears a straw hat. Reason bein', he's either chasin' his hat down th'
road, rollin' a cig'rette, er lookin' fer a drink o'water!"
Mark Twain would have felt right at home. :)
