YOU KNOW YOU’RE A WEST VIRGINIAN IF…

January 4th, 2014

You know how many fish, greens, peas, beans, &c., make up a mess.

My Hess line moved to Palantine, Virginia (now Fairmont, West Virginia) in 1723. My father and his parents moved to Marietta, Ohio during World War II. My dad is fond of joking that he raised the average intelligence in both states when he moved.

    Shalom Jeff,

    While I’m a big city boy from Columbus, my parents were from West ‘by God’ Virginia. If you used the word “if” too many times my father would say, “if a toad had wings it wouldn’t bump his ass on the ground.” Somebody should write this stuff down LOL!
