(edited)-I am originally from an area known as a truck stop on the PA turnpike...New Stanton. I drive my DH crazy with my horrible english, and words that no one else knows what they mean. "Younz" (you guys), "red-up" (clean up), "pop" (soda), "gumband" (rubberband) and so forth... I also put an "r" in words that really don't have an r....like "wash" comes out "warsh" I have also been mistaken for being from the south! Good old south western Pennsylvania!!!
DS is 6 with PA
