This is totally unrelated to quilting. I went to the library today and checked out this little book:
"The Official Guide to Christmas in the South or, If you Can't Fry it, Spraypaint it Gold" by David C. Barnette.
I laughed the entire time I read this book. It is hysterical, which it is meant to be. BUT it is so true. I saw more than a few relatives and loved ones in this book. Now I have to admit I am only half southern (my mama's from Texas and everyone knows it is it's own country.).
It covers all of the southern traditions, more than a few may be odd to outsiders. If you need a good laugh go to your local library and check out this book!
