Talking about me; it was a parish school. Here's a picture of the church. It was definitely an old school education.

Do I speak with an Accident?

Some visitors we have had back for the second time said they can't take the cadence that people speak in. They want to grab them by the neck and shake them and say, Get the words out already. Not me I'm Patient and we are in their territory, not the other way around. The kind people of the south tolerate us for the most part cause we're a little brutish!
