Seems like non-Southerners think we all sound like denizens of The Dukes of Hazard; southern states have disparate accents. I was born in TN, lived most of my childhood in various parts of west TX and AR, married and raised 3 children in NC - my accent, while southern, probably defies recognition, LOL. However, I do call shopping carts 'buggies,' I carry a purse rather than a handbag or pocketbook, and y'all is featured prominently when I address more than one person at a time. ;-)
