Sweet Tea is the "house wine" of the South; and coke, well, that's for when you want somethin' a little bit stronger.

I cringe each time asking for Coke, a server responds with 'pepsi ?'
I usualy ask for Dr.Pepper

And all these years I thought the only reason they made Coke was so that you had something to mix with Jack Daniels!! Some how, Jack and Pepsi just doesn't sound right!

We're off to Topsail tomorrow evening, for two nights. I need to check it out before the first week of January......not to mention that we have only spent three nights thus far in our new Safari. We're in site #115 this weekend, and it appears that we're going to have great weather!

Even up "north" here in mid-Mo, I grew up calling everything softdrink-ish a Coke. We've got lots of deep South this far north. And Chief, lucky you! We have freezing rain to look forward to in the morning. Enjoy a walk on the beach for us. It seems a long wait for the Can Opener from this last day of November.~G

Out west (not counting CA) don't ask for ketchup for your fries. You get asked if you want fry sauce.

Here you go - we can debate this at the rally over a COKE "it's the real thing".

Clancy, I did notice in your county that it's 80-100% Coke, living so close, I think it's 100%. "no, Pepsi, we have Coke, Diet Coke, Barq's, Diet Barq's, Bud Light, Miller Lite, now what do you want, Hun."

I don't see myself asking for a pop or soda at the Broke Spoke in Kiln, MS.

I don't ask for much at the "Spoke" - I ususlly take what they hand me and walk away, it's safer that way. hancock County it mostly Coke drinkers - I find very few ask for Pepsi around here.

As long as I can remember I've called it "Coke", even when I lived in Bermuda.

O&S What day you heading down to Topsail? I think we are on for Wednesday.

We have reservations Thursday-Sunday. I have to work Wednesday, that's when we're starting to close out our year at work & the auditors will be here(fun, fun).
Thursday afternoon is the earliest we can leave.

I guess I am older than I thought!

My last birthday, I received a musical card with something to the effect that old musicians don't fade away, they just rock on. I opened it and it played Sweet Home Alabama. Some of the Rally attendees may not have been born when that was a hit!
Isn't it amazing how time sneaks up on you! I always tell people that we started really early in West Virginia. I am really looking forward to getting together and making some noise. Did we ever decide when and where? We have all talked about nothing else since this rally came up. Lewis is busy polishing Betty every week end, Bless his heart. He wants her to be all shiny and pretty when she gets to meet all her cousins.

We always called everything a coke growing up which really became a problem when my brother started working for Pepsi. Then I moved north for awhile and fell into saying pop so I wouldn't have to explain myself everytime I asked for a coke but really wanted something else.

1 month away....

Essentially, we're 1 month away from this rally. I am happy to report our TV is back on the road following a months-long adventure in an intake and carburetor upgrade. Baring another ill-timed mechanical adventure, we should make the rally just fine.

What else does everyone have to accomplish before this rally?
