The Southern Curmudgeon

A Blog that looks at Southern Food, Southern Manners (or lack of), Clothes, Drivers, Design, Designers, Architecture,
Southern Cities and other Cities
Southerners Go To,
and other things as well.........

Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary has the following entry for Curmudgeon :

"Main Entry: cur·mud·geon
Pronunciation: \(ˌ)kər-ˈmə-jən\

1 archaic :
miser2 : a crusty, ill-tempered, and usually old man
— cur·mud·geon·li·ness \-lē-nəs\ noun
— cur·mud·geon·ly \-lē\ adjective

I don't consider myself old...........only in my 50's and isn't that the new 30 somewhere? Crusty?, sometimes. Ill tempered?, Well MAY-be, sometimes. But definately Southern, all the time! But this is not a blog to celebrate Billy-Bobs, mudding in your SUV's, "Pauler Deen" types,etc.
This will be MY avenue to vent as I try to navigate through life amongst the not so nice people that seem to be EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME! N-O-C's (Not our class) as I might just slip and call somebody who is really ill-bred! And I hope to vent in a fun way, that you the reader hopefully will enjoy, and once off my chest I can go through out the day more or less acceptably as a politically correct Southern Gentleman and not let any of those low lifes bother me. And maybe just mentioning "observations" here will be enough, and you, my reader, will learn just what I'll probably say before I say it.
This is just the preview. I will try to get my ducks in a row so it will hopefully be legible. And I can't spell, so if spell check doesn't catch it..........
So let's just have fun.
