Let me work on converting my "you ins" to "y'alls". By the way, there has to be a dozen different ways to say the plural of "you" in PA. I typically say, Yunz or youinz, depending on who I am talking. My grandma was from NC and said y'all in a sugar sweet voice like it wasn't natural as in how can anyone be so nice. "Y'all come back now." "Y'all come set a spell." "Y'all want some shine?"
She was a trip. I miss her so much. She drove this land yacht of a Pontiac Bonneville with a confederate flag on the front bumper. When she drove over a puddle, she would lift her feet. LOL
There’s something else I don’t hear today........and it’s something my grandmother said very often, when she was perplexed about something. She would say to me: “Chile, I swany if that don’t beat all!”
Translated, as best I can:
Child! I swear, if that don’t beat all! It didn’t matter who she was talking with—man, woman or child—LOL!
