Thank you. I had never heard that one said before. Do you know how to properly pronounce the St. Francois River? For bonus points, try the Cuivre River.

I only know the Bois D’arc colloquialism as I have been there. The others, who knows.

Versailles is “ver-sales”, Laquey is “lake-way” and Gravois is “grav-is”.

Mexico, however is mexico....
