You can watch old westerns or you kin move to west Texas. Midland/Odessa or Crawford might work. Problem with Crawford is that local boy has started importen a bunch a yankees.

IIRC somebody posted a link to a page that would morph normal languange into slangs like these in MD some while back.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
