Just an average Gal, older mom, trying to live a simple life & what happens along the way.
One of my favorite college roommates was from Mississippi.
I've learned that folks in Alabama (which is 49th out of 50 in so many categories) have a saying..."Thank God for Mississippi." LOL
I've never been to Mississippi-not even through. Generally though, I find I like people from anywhere. The state leadership needs to figure out where to invest resources better. Still, it sure seems whenever anyone is trying to give rationale for anything bad going on in their own state, the first thing they'll say is , "at least we're not Mississippi."
We call Mississippi the "Thank God State". Keep us from being dead last!
Alabama is usually 49th. I assure you that having the means to own a BMW assures life is easier.
One thing Mississippi is not last in is good looks. There is a joke at Ole Miss " Know what you call an ugly girl on campus? A visitor"
Miss America from Mississippi--four times. 1959,1960,1980, 1986--hope I remembered that correctly.
Very true, but do the girls age well? =)
Judging from the women I know from Mississippi, I would have to say yes, very well!
Nevertheless MS is on the list of states not seen yet. I should go have a look-see.
Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
