I want to thank everyone who responded to my questions concerning expressions I remember from growing up in central West Virginia. I left there when I was a teenager, and have lived in northern New England for about 30 years. So, I occasionally find myself (shudder) 'packing' my 'caa' in the 'dowah yad', going 'overtown' to the store, and commenting about those 'summah people from away'. Anyway, happy Thanksgiving to all. Rex P.S. My grandmother regularly did her housework 'of a morning'.
