Kickin my heels up (in spirit)!

Boy do I feels like a lark n the spring today!
I feel like kickin up my boots and dancin a jig.

Even whens the sun ain't shinin over here,
It sure it be shinin' over yonder.
I just be feelin downright perky.
I always be a-sayin' that it be better to
Kick ur heels up than to sag ur bottom lip!

I am a-gatherin my learnin' books.
Next week I'll be a-sharin' them with you uns.
Then you can vote over yonder at that there poll.
Or you can change that there vote that ya did make.
Or ya can just leave the vote thet ya had.
Whatever makes you happier than a slug in a thunderstorm!

These young uns of mine be downright helpful round here
right now whiles I can't be walkin much.
That there little un, Stephen,
he did somethin perty smart this mornin. 
He were eatin some dry cereal...
and he up and knewd that he were gonna spill some afore it happened!
That boy, well he went over yonder and got the broom,
came back and what do you know?
That cereal got spilt plumb all over the floor!
But he were prepared...
Aren't he a smart boy?
He's been workin' right hard round here.

He's been a beggin to tell you uns some stories,
so this Saturday I am gonna let him at it. 

Thanks for everyone's concern.
That be mighty nice of you.
Really I am happy as a lark now.
And lookin forward to learnin some new things.
Hillbillies like to be edjumacated regular like, ya know?
See ya next week!
Seth will be here tomorrow, and Stephen on Saturday.
Them boys of mine be hijakin my blog!
