Huh?  The Mason Dixon line was a survey in the eighteenth century that set the southern border of Pennsylvania.

 

Louisville?  Seriously?  What sort of mythology is this?

 

It may be an issue of a non-authorative sources:

The dentist kind of under stated the problem when talking to the oral surgeon... so they weren't able to pull the tooth. 

 

Apparently they'll need to sedate me because they're going to be doing some bone cutting.

 

This is going to suck.

 

 

I can't click like on this.

 

Well at least you'll be sedated.

True. My uncle liked to tell me. Your in the south if someone is below you. LOL. Hence making everyone in the south. Hahha #UncleLogic

 

Cheese-n-crackers what a day! I have had zero motivation to paint as of last. The past two weeks have just been blah blah with a capital BLAH

 

 

I THINK THAT HAS BEEN MY ISSUE... I have not created art in a while! MUCH CREATE!

I consider "the south" to be any of those states or territories that allied with the Confederacy during the Civil War.  That puts Missouri in the south, though most folks here consider themselves "midwestern". The accent here is more "southern" than the flat accent associated with the midwest, and food styles closely associate with other traditionally southern food.   I find it amusing that folks in Ohio consider themselves in the midwest, when they are clearly east of the Mississippi River. :) 

 

 

 

Why, so are Illinois and Indiana, and they are considered as solidly cornfed Midwestern as can be.

 

Or even further west, at least from the East Coast's perspective.  When I applied for graduate school to Parson's School of Design in New York City, they instead sent me materials from their Los Angeles branch because, as they said, I was in a western state (Illinois at the time, roughly one thousand miles closer to New York than to Los Angeles) and thus might prefer their more hinterland branch.

Tasted sweet but reminded me of milk that had captain crunch become too soggy. And then the blue stuff mixed in and it became sour. And then just tasting the blue stuff itself, reminded me of vomit from an empty stomach. 

Yum. :zombie:

Thank you all for your concern. To those of you who have sent me messages, please know that I do appreciate you checking in on me and I apologize if my unresponsiveness has caused anyone any undo worry. I'm doing ok but do still need some more time before I think I'll be ready to re-emerge. Thank you, again, for all of your concern, it means a lot to me.

Hugs to you!

RE: driver's license: I was actually qualified to operate a multi-million dollar naval vessel before I got my (car) license.

I was in Italy; I didn't need a car; everywhere I needed to go, I could walk to. If it was a good distance, I had a bicycle. If it was really far, Italy has pretty decent public transportation.

Behold, new glasses in action:

I couldn't find a Sharpie for accent, oh well.

You're right, you do look much better (and happier) with the new specs!::P:

I'm glad you're happy with them.::):

*sigh* The whole 'fly over country" thing.  I think the idea of the 'mid-west' was started before the rest of the west was won. Thereby a large number of fairly Eastern (in the grand scheme, but not in the New York City sense) States are Mid-western. 

 

Including my own home state of Michigan. 

 

Though I do have some mild regret I stayed with a conventional school choice, and wish I would have gone to Parson's or Rhode Island School of Design or Pratt, I don't know if I would have picked a school with geographical ignorance. (Though I was not thoroughly happy with my Fine Art Education, I do note that it looks like they have made some positive changes. US News ranks them as a top art school, for whatever that is worth. I am also very excited about this current program.)

I'm /finally/ done with my resin minis project. I took photos and posted them on my blog, not all of them are great photos but I followed through unlike several of my projects that need photographing.

Kentucky is where Colonel Harlan Sanders is from, and that's enough for me to call it the South.

My sister graduated from there.....

she is my age -3 for the time she would have gone...

 

 

Basically the south was the STATES that seceded from the Union.....

 

And that war was fought over states rights vs Federal Gov....

The fact that you were inspired to draw and then post these sketches, in obvious expression of your joy is wonderful. 

art happens. 

I love these boards .

I don't know if the actual 'cultural' idea of the 'South' is as simple. Many people in Florida do not count themselves as part of the south, but then Border states such as my adopted home of Kentucky is very much the south. (I have seen maps with the Mason Dixon line drawn such that Kentucky is both above and below it, and one where the line cuts right through Louisville.)

 

I think this is an interesting map:

hickey-map-south2.png?quality=90&strip=a

 

this is a pretty good map - but Missouri really does need to be cut in half.  People from St Louis, KC and Columbia(students) would all consider themselves northerners.  Small towns and everyone close to AR would consider themselves southerners. I-70 and southern edge of any city it runs through probably works as a border, 

Colorado is not the south (as shown above)  but it does have an occasional waffle house. 

Oklahoma really feels like the south, far more than shown above. Both my parents are from there.

Amuricans are geographically challenged.
