Got all but the above.

Stopped at a restaurant in Kentucky and had to ask the waitress to repeat herself 3 times before I understood that she was asking if "Y'all wanna cup of coffee?" Should have had these instructions as a guide. :lol:

We in Michigan are without an accent. I find it amazing that the state lines really divide manners of speech, dress, lifestyle as well as geography - even flora and fauna. Kentucky is not a gazillion miles from Michigan and yet it's like a totally different but beautiful world. I'm told they speak English. :lol: :lol:
