Walking With A Corn Pone...

video
corn pone
The term "corn pone" is often used as a noun to refer to those who have certain rural, unsophisticated peculiarities.  As well as an adjective to describe "hick" characteristics. The term is often directed at those from rural areas where inbreeding is rampant.
Whoa, Dude is corn pone Urban Dictionary

Your laugh for the day...a real walk, uh, stumble, with me in the semi-wild along the declining creek.

Hope this isn't too scary and you  come back to visit now and then.

I enjoyed hearing the sound of the 'crick'. But, after you mentioned water moccasin I was out of there! I was chased by one, once... no thank you! I'll enjoy the walk vicariously, thank you!

I'd rather be with country folks than all those folks that think they are all that. Much more real.

Have a terrific day. :)

You have such a sweet Southern voice! I thought you'd sound rough and tough! 'Course, you weren't yelling or anything.

Now, I'm not a country girl or anything, but I DO know you shouldn't be walking in a creek with FLIP FLOPS! What are you, NUCKING FUTS!!! My heart was pounding and I thought for sure a snake would come out and I could just hear you laugh and say, "This one's for YOU PAT!!"

I DID enjoy listening to the birds and the water and your voice. Thanks for the tour. And THANKS for no snakes. :)

Sandra said...

i am assuming you got out of the creek and did not die from snake bite since you were able to do this post... LOL
i liked hearing your voice, makes me feel like i know you better..

Cute post. I guess I'm in the minority that your walk and possible snake encounter didn't bother me. I would have been watching for spiders hanging in the trees and miss the moccasin biting my foot.

I doubt if I'd walk the water in Flips, but the whole adventure brings back memories of days spent at Indian and Dusinberry Creek.

Buttons said...

Love love love hearing the smooth sound of your voice and I would so love to go exploring with you there. OK now what the heck flip flops and snakes yikes!!!!! now Pink Cadillacs and snakes maybe but you go first:)
Nice video I enjoyed it and was hoping you did not get bit. Hug B

I have never heard that term corn pone before.
You are very brave walking in water where there might be snakes. I enjoyed joining you for your walk, hope we do it again soon.

That was awesome ! I love your southern accent YEEHAW ! Hey I am a hick or as we call it here a country bumpkin and darn proud of it ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

Gail, this was just the most fun ever!! I shared the videos with my husband who often refers to himself as a "corn-fed farmboy". You have the sweetest, most beautiful voice, it was captivating! We chuckled at you wearing flip-flops and I told him of the photo walks you've taken us on at your beautiful farm. I so hope you'll do more of these, showing us more of where you live, the critters, the rock garden, etc. It was wonderful... well, except for that casual mention of SNAKES! Papa Bear is cool with snakes, me... well, he can tell you a story about how fast I can move up a hill when I see snake!:))

When we lived in Virginy, a dear friend taught me to YEEEHAWWW...love the drawl!...:)JP

Irene said...

I sure enjoyed hearing your voice. It is much more melodious and lighter than I expected it to be. You have a very feminine voice and I guess I expected something a little bit lower and louder.

I hope you post more videos like this because it gives us such a good idea of what you and your environment are all about. You can't capture anything like it in a photograph.

LindaG said...

Videos take forever to load on my phone. :-|
But I enjoyed the post even if I didn't watch them. :-)
Have a great week, Gail. ♥

Susan Kane said...

Once you said "snake" you had me looking ahead for you, too.

I suggest "Keen" sandals instead of flip-flops! Glad you found higher ground.

Linda Starr said...

I've heard the term chitlins and corn pone and assumed it was southern talk for some down home southern recipes, thought the corn pone must be cornbread and the chitlins something fried. One of these days I'll cook me up a batch of both. Ha.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

HOW neat to hear your voice!! I listened to it over and over...:):):)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Wait! I thought corn pone was a southern dish. Yeah, it is..I mean..isnt' it? Didn't worry about the flip flop. I think you could hike the Grand Canyon in your flip flops!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Too darned bad we don't have time lapsed photography so we could watch and see how those stones were made!!

Empty Nester said...

Right. Like the people from McClellenville. About 40 miles north of here. The nation's capital to incest. LOL Wait, I guess that's not funny. Ooops!

Saucy Kodz said...
