my uncle married a girl from Opp Alabama (rattlesnake capital of the world btw

They had pecan trees on their land and every Thanksgiving she'd bake me a pie with those nuts her ma shipped up for my birthday (it's around turkeyday). Boy those pies were good ... nuts were smaller though but really flavorful.

ct55 this is an off year, trees should not be doing this....last year was a good one....was it the partial drought? Trees drop more to survive etc....

When I moved from a North Eastern upbringing but from Seattle Washington the nuts were called puhcahns. We moved to Texas and learned they actually were called locally as peecans. How is it in S.C.?

Ya know you can do a nut wine with those, picked green.

As it was explained to me long ago by a gentile southern lady:
A Puh Kahn is a nut.
A Pee Can is something you go to the bathroom in.

Ever been to Texas,Stache?
They have a way of reinventing the pronunciation of many words. It was quite an eyeopener to live there. I was hoping it was just a Texan thing

Kinda like, 'If God had intended that Texans should ski, he woulda made bullshit white'.

What's your scale on them thar peeecaans? Is that a foot square tile or a 4 inch tile?

A Texan stops and watches a Maine farmer for a few moments and pauses at the fence remarking to the Mainer ....

Texan .... Why down in Texas, it takes me almost a day to drive round my ranch!

Mainer .... Ahhhhhhhhh-uh .. had a car like that myself once.

How would the tile size tell you scale when you can only see one corner of any tile or a piece of edge?

Don't the bulls in VT defecate, or does it come out white? Texans ski on poop? Scatalogical joke needn't contain humor to be funny? I don't get it.

Are those from South Carolina or Maine (per your profile)? We have two huge pecan trees in our yard in SW PA that produce nuts every year, but they never have any meat in them. I always assumed it's the climate up here that causes that.

Hey Mainiac,
Looks like you have the paper shell variety. Our paper shells are of poor quality this year ... drought got'em. However the smaller, "Wichita" variety seems to be meatier this year. Funny thing we normally have a banner year with a huirricane the year before; seems to "prune" the tree which makes them load up the next year. Not seeing a great production this fall....You making me think of my mother's Divinity Fudge, loaded w/pecans, which she makes during the holidays.....

really depends on the part of Texas. You were probably just listening to one of 'em yankee transplants from the 70's oil boom.

Nuff of this speculation! :

Time to get down to the bidness of nuts .... big nuts!

THE RULES:

Post a photo of your nuts.

The photo must be next to some identifiable object or measurement device.

The winner will be determined by .... a committee yet to be named ..

The tree yields every two years.....usually an off year produces a couple of miserable pecans....but this year there are many in the trees, and they are at least 2-3 mm bigger....squoils have been absolutely .......nuts......

Well, if it's a Floor Tile, one foot square, I know how wide the grout is. If it's a counter tile, again, I know how wide the grout is.:

No sense of humor, eh?: :

They were transplants allright. all the way from Lake Charles , La. My closest friend was born in Cajun country . Some were locals ,the Northener transplants, spoke like most of the rest of the country. The local, home bred had a language all their own and after living there a few years it took a while to get the y'alls out of my lingo

I've got lots of relatives right across the river in Orange, they pronounce it "Puh Kahn."

I thought everybody did.
One of my favorites was their ways of pronouncing Spanish words with the Texican touch
San Jacinto was San Ja sin tah not San Ya ceen toh
And that was the announcer on TV

I believe that was intentional, tracing all the way back to the War for Independence (Texas from Mexico, not the 13 Colonies from Britain); when I lived about 10 miles south of there, it was explained to me it was pronounced that way because "we" won the war.
