Tim' s Mom asked in a comment to a previous post if I have an accent. That is a great question and anyone who knows me IRL (in real life) know that the answer to this is a resounding YES. You see, I am a native Texan and we have a definite accent. Mine is quite thick and anyone I meet immediately asks if I am from Texas. When we were traveled to Europe back when I was in college, it was easy to tell people that we were from Dallas as most people had watched that TV show.
For example if I typed the way I speak it would look something like this: (spoken very slowly)

This mornin we went ta church and sang and hunted aigs and went ta dinner at Cattleman's. Tonight, we are having meet loaf and mash tatas. Bout time to git the kids to bed and I'm plum tuckerd out myself.
How are you all? How are your mother and the rest of your family? We are doing fine but a cold front came in today and it was very cold. This morning, we went to church and sang and hunted eggs and then went to lunch at Cattleman's (a local steak house). Tonight, we are having meat loaf and mashed potatoes. It is about time to put the children to bed and I am very tired.
My sister will probably have a comment or two to make on my accent as she finds it quite humorous that I have one and she does not really but she is an English teacher and works hard to speak correctly and to make sure I do also.
