Attorney dad recounts this conversation: Dad—Hello, is Pete there? Pete’s wife: Nah. Peter is by the country out.
EEEEK…Not certain where to put this:

From Latin marcescere (to wither), from marcere (to wither). Earliest documented use: 1859.
Dead Leaves: Reminds me of the movie Dead Leaves released in 2001 that my children
wanted me to watch
Quite unlike anything I have ever watched to this day
One can, if one wished, watch the entire movie on Youtube
This movie will relieve boredom
I don’t think my dad ever in the time I knew him said the word “dollars.”When I was young, instead of saying "how come", my dad would say "horse cum". It was a long time before I realized what he was actually saying.
How’s baseball going? We had a contractor cancel on us and I have exactly 3 days to tear out a mound and plate circle, build a new mound and plate circle, and re-anchor 1st and 3rd. It’s raining like hell here right nowWhen I was young, instead of saying "how come", my dad would say "horse cum". It was a long time before I realized what he was actually saying.
Oh my. That's quite a chore! Had 6 DH's scheduled this spring and got in 2, which is kind of expected in the spring, so no big deal. Everyone is going out that I am expecting and no kids that are "trying baseball" which is good.How’s baseball going?

This past Monday my #1 didn't show up for school. Not even kidding. His family moved and no one said anything. Not one of those families that move around. Parents had good jobs, etc. They just think their only child needs to play at a bigger school so he can play at a big college. There is no way he has the balls to ever do that because of how his parents have coddled him his whole life. It's the only pitcher I lost, but still. A lot of good young pitchers.
"Warsh". Like referring to "warshing" clothes.I don’t think my dad ever in the time I knew him said the word “dollars.”
Every time it came out of his mouth that I can ever remember it was “doll hairs.”

I admittedly probably stated this when young and growing up in my small town but have corrected when realized the correct word is "wash". I corrected it over the years. I have a co-worker who always says it and it sticks out like a sore thumb when I hear it. Cringe-worthy!
Not to make this a racial thing at all, but, how come when people of color say "asks" it sound so different. Not that it's bad and I don't know what they are saying but it sounds like there are extra S's in the word somehow. I've tried to imitate saying it but cannot for the life of me, but it seems most black individuals say it the same. It's a weird phenomenon.
