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
I am not from the south, but my mother was born there, and her mother, and her mothers mother and ...is. I have always loved the warmth and intimacy of the speech. I love hearing the question, in that slow drawl, "how is every little thing?" as if every moment of your day, no matter what it entails, is important.
