Bye, y'all,


You understand that's the singular. If you meant to say 'Bye' to all of us it would be 'Bye, all, y'all'.


Ha! That's rich! A New Yorker telling a Mainer how to speak Southern!

Us folks down here in Texas would like to set you Yankees straight. "Y'all" is singular. Or plural. It's entirely context-derived. Kind of like 'smurf' from that animated cartoon series of the 1970s-1980s.

"All y'all" is an acceptable use of the term (please note no comma between 'all' and 'y'all') but is exclusively reserved for the plural (i.e., two or more subjects).

I'm reminded with fondness of the Pace Picante ads from 10-20 years ago. "This one's made in Texas. Where's that one made in? NEW YORK CITY!!! Get a rope...."


Whoa. What's this stuff, 'Us folks down here in Texas'. At least I'm just a 'Yankee', aren't you what is commonly known as a 'Damn Yankee' (ex-Minnesotan). You know, a northerner who moves to the south.

Eh, a rookie mistake. I've made them long after I could be called a rookie.

Nah. A "Damn Yankee" (or more typically) a "G**damn Yankee" is someone who has lived and breathed the Yankee life all their lives. Like...umm...YOU. I've lived in Texas before, before I came to my senses and returned. Spending most of my life in California-or at least the plurality of my life-doesn't make me a Yankee or a GD Yankee. It just makes me weird. I can live with that.

So I'm a weird honorable Texan. One that was confused before and came to his senses and came back.

This being the same guy who calls me a "Mainer". Of course I haven't lived there since 1991. What year was you born on?

A rather violent crash snapped this bike in half.





After the crashes on Day 1, I'm amazed that no one has been forced to abandon yet! I was sure there would be at least one broken collar bone in the mix.

And I've been to Long Island. It's no surprise that the USDA elected to keep their Anthrax and other big bad nasty bugs out there on Plum Island.
