C ountry Comments by Bill Robinson, Publisher
There is nothing more enjoyable to read than â€œLetters to Godâ€? written by children. Recently I read my all time favorite . . . Dear God, When exactly will hell freeze over? My dad said thatâ€™s about the time Iâ€™ll get a new pony. â€” Tricia age 10 â€”CCâ€” What do you call those soft rolls of dust that collect on the floor under your bed? Many people know them as dust bunnies. But in parts of the Northeast, youâ€™d call them dust kitties; in the South, house moss; in Pennsylvania, you might call them woolies. There are, in fact, at least 174 names by which Americans call these bits of fluff, including bunny tails, frog hair, cussywop, woofinpoofs andâ€”perhaps most evocativelyâ€”ghost manure. Try your hand at identifying some of the terms found in the Dictionary of American Regional English. That we can identify these words today is largely a testament to the vision of one man: Frederic Cassidy, a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin in Madison who conceived the Dictionary of American Regional English (known as DARE) in a 1962 speech to the American Dialect Society. Mr. Cassidy died in 2000, at the age of 92, having made it to â€œOâ€? in his quest to catalog American English in all its rip-staving (that is Ozarkian for rip-roaring) regional diversity. His tombstone bears a simple inscription: â€œOn to Z!â€? â€œThat was his rallying cry for about the last decade of his life,â€? said Joan Houston Hall, 65, who joined DARE in 1975 and took over as its chief editor after Mr. Cassidyâ€™s death. In March, Harvard University Press will publish the Dictionaryâ€™s Volume V, finishing off the alphabet with slab through zydeco, nearly half a century after the first fieldworkers fanned out in â€œWord Wagonsâ€? to 1,002 communities across America, administering a 1,600-item questionnaire to sometimes-suspicious, often-perplexed locals. The fruits of their labors have been a feast for the lexicographically inclined ever since. What does a patient in the South mean when he complains of dew poison? What does a waitress in California mean when she offers you coffee and snails? Where would you go if a New Englander directed you to the willywags? (Answers: The patient has a rash on his feet or legs. The waitress is offering you cinnamon rolls with your cup of joe. The New Englander means what others might call the boonies.) As the repository of answers to such questions (the dictionary contains nearly 60,000 entries and is the only project of its type that is national in scope), the folks at DARE have long acted as a clearinghouse for all sorts of odd requests, by everyone from doctors to dialogue coaches to presidents. Ms. Hall remembers a call she took in the early 1990s from a lawyer whose client had called a former girlfriend a mud flap. Could the phrase be used as a term of endearment? â€œI could neither confirm nor deny,â€? said Ms. Hall, who searched DAREâ€™s archives but found nothing. â€œIt was only years later, driving down the highway behind a big truck, that I realized he may have been referring to those curvaceous silhouettes you see,â€? Ms. Hall said. â€œSo, I suppose that could be complimentary.â€? In 1992, a member of President George H.W. Bushâ€™s staff called on Mr. Cassidy when the president baffled reporters by calling an argument over who had run the first negative ad of the campaign a case of â€œwho shot John.â€? Mr. Cassidy found that the term originated with a childrenâ€™s game, an Iowa variant is â€œwho shot the bear,â€? and in southern Appalachia, who-shot-John is slang for corn whiskey, primarily moonshine. The next year, reporters rang DARE when President Bill Clinton said a critic didnâ€™t know him â€œfrom Adamâ€™s off-ox.â€? The phrase turned out to be common west of the Appalachians, meaning, â€œhe doesnâ€™t know anything about me.â€? DARE has even been used to solve crimes. Roger Shuy, a retired forensic linguist, recounted the case of a child abduction in which the kidnapper left a note demanding ransom of $10,000, directing: â€œPut it in the green trash kan on the devil stripâ€? at the corner of two streets. The kidnapper tried to disguise his education with â€œkanâ€? (elsewhere spelling â€œpreciousâ€? correctly), but devil strip is a term for the strip of grass between the sidewalk and the roadway, one used solely in a small area around Akron. When law enforcementâ€™s suspect list included just one educated man from Akron, the police got a confession. Some linguists worry that television and the Internet will wash away Americaâ€™s diverse regional vocabulary. The Subway sandwich chain, for instance, is eroding regionalisms like grinder (New England), hero (New York City), hoagie (Pennsylvania and New Jersey), zep (southeastern Pennsylvania) and spucky (Boston).
Mondayâ€™s FARA Walk for Awareness was well attended and raised over $1155 for research into this devastating disease. Pictured leading the walkers around the Mustang Walking Trail are Sam Brown, Kaden Mills, Wesley Harden, Faith Caldwell, Aaron Dockrey, Stevi Caldwell, Wade Brown, FARA speaker Kyle Bryant, Jordan Remis and Austin Hamilton, followed by a crowd of supporters.
But new regionalisms are being minted. Relatively new (that is, in the last 40 years), the term skeevy has arisen primarily in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey to describe something gross or dirty. Out of Northern California, there has been hella, used as an intensifier, as in â€œthatâ€™s hella cool.â€? The project was started by Frederic Cassidy, shown in 1949. Indeed, while some might find tweet-speak hella skeevy, it looks like the future of discovering regionalisms is online. A paper from Carnegie Mellon University in 2010 looked at regionalisms on Twitter, using geo-tagged posts. The authors found that while Northern Californians were hella tired, New Yorkers were deadass tired. And while sumthinâ€™ means something in most cities, it is suttinâ€™ in New York City. Erin McKean, founder of online
dictionary Wordnik, and a member of the DARE advisory board, said that Internet subcultures will increasingly be sources of new words. â€”CCâ€” Speaking of words, there are some you just donâ€™t want to hear . . . especially when you are in the hospital. You know what a hospital room is. Itâ€™s where friends of the patient go to talk to other friends of the patient. Never mind that the patient is gagging and turning blue. The visitors are going to discuss such things as the weather, taxes, the Busbee retirement pension, too much rain or the lack of it, income taxes, and â€œthe time I had my operation.â€? Iâ€™ll tell you, Dr. Kildare, here are a few things that, as a patient, you donâ€™t want to hear in your hospital room. - â€œWell, I donâ€™t think he
should buy any long-playing records.â€? â€œItâ€™s a very rare disease. The only other time Iâ€™ve seen it is in a crossword puzzle.â€? â€œI wonâ€™t tell you where we found the skin to graft on your husbandâ€™s chin, but occasionally his face may feel like sitting down.â€? â€œWe performed that operation just in the nick of time. Another few hours and you would have recovered without it.â€? â€œWhat? Three thousand dollars for an exploratory operation on my wife? Forget it, Iâ€™ll find out whatâ€™s wrong with her at the autopsy.â€? â€œI think my doctor used to be a veterinarian. He just told me to open my mouth and say â€˜Moo.â€™â€?

“Yes, we have to operate. My malpractice premium is due tomorrow.” - Hmmmmm, I thought they cured this years ago.” - “Down at the plant, they painted out your name in the parking lot this morning.” - “With this confounded new metric system, I can’t figure out this thermometer. Either he has a temperature of 415 degrees or he’s going eight-five kilometers per hour.” And my favorite of all . . . - “Of course I wear a mask when I operate. That way, they’re never sure who to blame.” —CC— Camping out has never been at the top of the list of things I enjoy. However this past week I read about a new type of camping out that I might actually enjoy. Glamping is short for glamour camping . . . On a glamping trip, your days might be spent hiking or rafting in the backcountry, but your nights could be spent sleeping on fresh sheets in a soft bed. Though you might be many miles from civilization, your meals could be prepared by an elite chef, and there might be hot water for your morning shower. Here’s what you need to know before you give glamping a try . . . There’s little consensus about what level of luxury the term “glamping” implies, which can make it difficult for travelers to know what they’re getting. Some glamping facilities and tour operators truly offer amenities on par with high-end resorts. Guests enjoy maid and butler service, four-star chefs and opulent accommodations. But others really are just camping facilities that throw in a few extras such as a real bed and a private bathroom. Prices vary greatly, too, from $100 a night to well into the thousands – and might or might not include meals. According to the article I read, some of the best places to go glamping in the US and Canada are: · Treebones Resort in Big Sur, California · PAWS up in Greenough, Montana · Wild Exodus in Ontario, Canada · Martyn House in Ellijay, Georgia This past weekend my youngest son took his three-year-old son camping . . . in the backyard. Their neighbor, Sam Harkey, has a rooster with poor timing. Each morning about 3:00 am, the rooster starts crowing which wakes up the guineas. About the time all of them were making a noise, the sounds of a train in the distance could be heard and, needless to say, the entire family was now wide-awake. They had a great time and I suspect that his backyard camping trip was just as enjoyable as any $1000 a day glamping experience. —CC— And last of all, my favorite story of the week . . A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Jade, 5, and Dane, 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. “If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, ‘Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait.’” Jade turned to his younger brother and said, “Dane, you be Jesus.” -

Threads of Life ~~ A Special Mother’s Day ~~ THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, MAY 17, 2012 - PAGE 4
by Cleo Emerson LeVally
This is a mostly a repeat of the column I wrote last year the week of Mother’s Day. I have been asked to run it again because it meant so much to the person who requested it be repeated. It is also apt as I have a niece whose mother is near death and my thoughts are with her at this time. I will change it very little. I really did not get excited about Mother’s Day this year, until I walked into the church Sunday morning. Beautiful potted flowers in all colors covered tables at the back of the Santuary! It was a beautiful site. At the end of the service, each lady in attendance was told to chose a flower as a gift. It has been a tradition for many years at our church to have a
small gift for the Mothers and Fathers in attendance on their special day. This year the flowers were very apt for that occasion. They can be transplanted in pots or planted in pots around the yard of the home. Of course potted plants were presented to the oldest mother, the youngest mother and the mother with the most children present in church. Several families had their children or parents with them in the service. So I thought of Mother’s Day all day. Then I got on Facebook to check it out, and found this poem written by my niece in California. It was written for her mother who passed away a few

years ago. “If flowers grow in heaven, Lord, then pick a bunch for me, place them in my mother’s arms and tell her they are from me. Tell her that I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.” I thought this poem could be a tribute for everyone who has lost a mother to death. Does the following story remind you of any Mother you know? It was passed to me by one of my friends: An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and upon returning to her car, found four men in the act of
leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bag and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, “I have a gun and know how to use it. Get out of the car! The four men didn’t wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad. The lady somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the seat and got in the car. She was so shaken she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then realized why. She noticed there was a football, a Frisbee and two
twelve packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four spaces down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station. The sergeant to whom she told the story could not stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less then five feet tall with glasses, curly white hair and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed. Moral of the story? If you are going to have a senior moment…make it memorable.
We’re having a revival at our church this week! It begins on Thursday, May 17th and continues through Sunday morning, May 20th. So whether you get your newspaper on Thursday or Friday, you’ll still be getting this information in time to attend most of the services. The opening song begins at 7:00 each evening, and there will be a time for fellowship (with food of course) each evening after the services. Rev. Don Smith will bring the revival messages. He is a Viet Nam vet who has come through some hard trials, and he’s come through them with his faith in Jesus, his sense of humor, and his ability to tell a great story in a relevant-toreal-life sermon all still intact. He has become such a favorite to call when we need a supply pastor that we consider him part of our family. Anyway, you’re invited so please come to our revival services if you possibly can. This Sunday we recognized and celebrated our mothers with gifts for them, we also presented corsages to the oldest mother, the youngest moth-
er, and the mother who had the most children present at the services. But there’s more! We had three specials honoring our mothers during the song service. Sandra Howshar sang “Like my Mother Does,” Kathy Spillman sang “If it Wasn’t for the Lighthouse,” and Joyce Searcy sang “Come Spring.” There may not have been a dry eye in the house! Rev. Karch’s message was about some of the outstanding mothers whose stories are told in the Bible. In Exodus 2:3-10 we read about Moses’ mother and how she saves him from certain death. She puts a lot of faith in God as she sets the basket that cradles her little son on the river in a place where Pharaoh’s daughter can find him. Her faith pays off, and not only is her baby’s life spared, he is educated in Pharaoh’s own household. Then Moses is used by God to lead the Children of Israel out of their bondage in Egypt. In I Kings 3:16-27 two
women come before Solomon bringing a baby that both insist is theirs. Soloman finally decides the case by threatening to cut the baby in two so that they can share him. Of course the one who is the true mother is quick to protect her child’s life by choosing to sacrifice her claim on him rather than have him be killed, and Soloman decides the case in her favor. A third mother that we honor is Jesus’ mother, Mary. It may have been harder than we think to raise a truly perfect child, but it is impossible to fathom the burden she must have carried knowing that her child would one day die for the sins of mankind in a way that she can’t yet imagine. Proverbs 31:10-30 describes the ideal woman. She is virtuous, capable, and industrious as she lovingly makes sure that her family is taken care of. God saw fit to describe and honor such a person in his Word, and it is certainly fitting that we set aside a day to honor our mothers.

My Great-Grandfather, Jimmy Bullard (yes there is a long line of Jims in my family), came to Oklahoma back before statehood by wagons. Two of his sons (and families) besides my grandfather, James T. Bullard came with him. It was the first of three trips. While the men seemed to get on pretty well in Leflore County the women (bless ‘em) didn’t. They said the country was too wild for them and my G. Grandmother Sarah Ramsey feared that after she died that the Lord wouldn’t be able to find her if she was buried in this wilderness called Oklahoma. She demanded to be taken back to Alabama even if the men folk thought it to be a land of milk and honey. This was about 1909 after the cotton crop had been ginned that these decisions had to be made. All but my grandpa J. T. and grandma Ruby would return to Alabama and live. J. T. and family wanted to stay. He really liked Oklahoma but the family was more than a little afraid to go alone so J. T. and his entire family loaded up and went with them. A recurring argument in the days before leaving was: “Are we taking the dogs?” The two
dogs were blooded hounds and the men weren’t about to give them up so grandpa (who seems at this point to be sort of in charge) says they can follow us by foot. And they did. It may have been considered cruel by today’s standards (PETA) which would have demanded the dogs be given a ride. I suppose Mitt Romney would have made the dogs ride on top of the wagons while Mr. Obama would have eaten them as he says he did in his book— “Dreams of my Father.” But the dogs walked the 750 miles and enjoyed every step of the way. This trip (as were the others) was eventful and well remembered in family lore. Grandma Ramsey, the worrying Christian for whom the trip back was made, said there was no way she was riding in a wagon 750 miles and announced she would be driving her personal buggy. It was said she had an attitude. The numerous kids in the party walked most of the way too and fussing at times over who would get to ride in grandma’s buggy and for how far. She just allowed one rider at a time. A favored milk-cow made the walk too and trudged along without
complaint tied to a wagon. The three-wagon train and buggy camped by creeks and rivers and my grandmother Ruby said they crossed the Mississippi on a ferry. “Scared our little old mules to death to get on that ferry,” Grandma said. It was cool weather as they left Oklahoma and they would close the wagons up snug at night to stay warm in their beds. A campfire would be maintained as the men took turns keeping watch over the camp and you can be sure they were armed to the teeth. It snowed in Mississippi and they were allowed to stay in an empty farmhouse a night or two, although my grandparents slept in their bed out in the wagon. Grandma said: “It was a lot warmer in that wagon than it was in that old house.” As you might expect, the two valuable hunting dogs made the trip just fine. “Sometimes they would scout way off wanting someone to come and see what they had but usually we just kept pressing on and the dogs would find their way back to us.” Grandma reported that the dogs had a good time over the 90 days it took to get back to Lookout Mountain—brought a lot of pleasure as well as fresh
meat to the trip. They were hunters you know.” That spring Grandpa and Grandma came back—this time they got rid of their “stuff” and rode a train to Poteau. I still have a recording made by my Uncle back in the 50s on which my
Grandma recounts the events of this last epic journey to Alabama—and back. Have a good weekend and be nice to your dogs. And yes, be sure and go to church this Sunday. Wayne Bullard, Pharm. D firstname.lastname@example.org

Light from God’s Word Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ According to news reports, nearly 1,000 delegates representing 12 million church members are on hand in Tampa for the 11-day 2012 United Methodist General Conference, “where homosexuality is the top issue of controversy.” News reports claim that the liberal side of the church wants to accept homosexuals into the clergy and to celebrate same-
sex marriages. It should be disturbing to every Bible-believing Christian that men take it upon themselves to determine the teachings and practices of the church. Shouldn’t Christians honor the practices taught in the words of Jesus Christ? Doesn’t the church belong to Jesus Christ? Isn’t Jesus Christ the head of the church and won’t we be judged by His words? When men rule over the church and change the teachings and practices, how can that body belong to Jesus Christ? Jesus said, “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46) In the same line of thought, our president revealed last week that he did not see anything wrong with same-sex marriages. Since the Bible plainly states that Homosexuality is sinful, doesn’t that mean that our president, along

with many attending the Methodist Conference do not believe the Bible? Or, maybe they do not believe the Bible is God’s word! Or, maybe they do not believe that God exists? Whatever the case, aren’t men in their wisdom, acting as if they have the authority to determine the truth? Do men have the power to say who is doing right or wrong and who will be saved and lost in eternity? Didn’t Jesus say, “I am the way, the truth, and the life? No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6) Perhaps, we men need to remember that we are the ones needing to be saved and that we are not the savior!

Atwood Church of the Nazarene
Mother’s Day is always a special day. We try to honor our mothers by giving them all flowers. Ruth DeShields received a basket for having the most children there. Ellen McCarn received a basket for being the oldest and Jamie Cassell received the basket for the youngest. Ruth was also blessed when her children (Mick, Jennea, Brenda, Gary and grandson Jeremy) sang “Supper Time” for the special. The Bible says to train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. God blesses Christian mothers. Bro. Larry sermon was taken from 2 Timothy 1: 1-7 and entitled “Mothers Who Live their Faith.” Mothers who live their faith put God at the center of their homes and lives. Women of God want their children to experience what they have experienced. They long for their children to have a personal relationship with God. They devote themselves to training up their children in the way they should go. They make God the most important thing in life. Praying is not something they ought to do, it is something they do. Their children hear their names lifted up to heaven. Reading the Bible is a passion, not a pastime. Going to church is not an option. No one has more influence upon a child than the mother. Use that influence wisely. Take action to make sure they have every opportunity to know God. They train their children to listen for the voice of God. At some point, Timothy heard God call his name. God was not a new concept for him. His heritage made it easy for him to listen for and hear the voice of God. The years of his youth were spent learning the things of God from his mother and grandmother. When Timothy heard Paul preach, he heard God speak. When God called him into ministry, Timothy was able to hear. He was able to hear because he had been taught to listen. Mom and grandma had to release him to follow the One they all served. Timothy’s fear gave way to a spirit of power and God used him. Next Sunday night we will have a graduation party for Adam Lively at 7:00. We invite all his friends and relatives to come. We are very proud of Adam and know that he will do good when he attends college in the fall.

Harmony Missionary Church News
The Lord’s Day at Harmony Missionary Baptist Church of Gerty began service with singing “Follow, Follow, Trust & Obey”, and “I Love To Tell The Story.” Devotional Reading was “Why Are You Hiding There?”, I Kings 19:11-18. Adult Lesson was “Dying to Self to Live for Christ”, Acts 6:9-15, 7:59-60, Romans 8:35-37. The gospel of Jesus must be proclaimed at all costs. Take up your cross daily and follow Jesus. “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”, Galatians 2:20. It was wonderful to have the Russells in our service. Bro. Leon can still sing bass beautifully and Bro. Mike does marvelous with the guitar and singing. Sister Janice prayed a beautiful prayer. Bro. Mike spoke of their travels and missionary work. We are thankful to have Christians that are willing to go and tell others about our Lord and Savior. Bro. Mike’s message was taken from II Corinthians 1:1-5, “God our Comforter.” We had Mother’s Day dinner after our morning service. We wanted more time to visit with the Russells. We were thankful to have Sister Billie back, she has been sick. Also Sister Geneva has missed some services. We were thankful to have her and daughters Donna, Denise and Jessika in service for Mothers Day. We pray you have a good week and may God bless you!
