Two Things …

… show that I’m not a real Texan:

  • When I open my mouth, it’s what I always call “British English with a German accent“, and
  • I go out and work in the garden when it’s hottest – in the afternoon – instead of doing the sensible thing and work early or late.

  1. My wife’s English has no German tint to it, but we’re still working on getting the British part out. Someday, I swear, we’ll get to her to have an Ozark Mountain twang.


    • Hi Randall,
      My English has always had a trace of a Cologne accent. I’ve never been able to eliminate that in my German, either. I can detect it when I hear myself from a recording: faint, but there all the same. And at my age and having come over to the US so late in my life I doubt if I’ll ever acquire a Texas drawl. 😉
      Best regards,

I'd really love to hear from y'alls!
