I've always said Southern is a state of mind...I'm not from the deep South but I'm from below the Mason Dixon and I have way more in common with the Belles than any yank ;)
I always get funny looks when I say this here in the district. "Do you mean you're about to?" "Naw, I'm fixin to."

A GREAT OLD SOUTHERN SAYING....Can remember my Grandmother saying this...my Daddy also, and now I use it. Been around a long time....but still applies. Yup....the creeks do rise round this part of the country and when that happens, the Good Lord is not gonna let you get anywhere. Love the country sayings. SH
