    Rock & Glock -

    Thanks for clarifying! I'm originally from KY, so when I was a little shaver visiting my uncle in MI, he'd always call me his 'little hillbilly nephew'. I would refer to him as my 'plump-kin' - I was only 5 at the time & it was around Halloween.

    I'll let him know this for future reference, altho it's been 30+ years!

    Cool That's ok I've used this to define the group I belong to:

    I'm a Evengelical-Federalist-Pickup driving-gun toting-Hick-American. It seams like it would be the politically correct term for redneck.

    You're right, Rock. The "hillbilly" term should definitely be reserved for the North Texans.

    And all this time I've been answering the question of "Ethnicity?" with "Honkey". . .

    Agreed...or the local derivative, applied equally to men or women..."Bubba" or "Bubbaz" or "Bubbette"
