    That sounds like something my dad would say. Ain't is a word, however. It is a contraction for "am not". So, it is proper to say "I ain't" but improper to say "you ain't".

    I'd been married to my wife three years before her family stopped calling me that. I won them over with my shooting and my BBQ.

    But wait...say there's six people in that double wide and your referring to all of them. I believe it would be the double plural possessive...'All Yall's things'.

    Wow , the intricacies of Southern 'lingo' is too complex for most people to comprehend.
