Welcome Back to Sunday & Southern Monthly!

 

If you missed the previous installments, you’ll be interested in reading Issue 1 where I give a full definition of colloquial and a favorite example of one.  In Issue 2 you’ll find out what my youngest daughter does every morning.  In Issue 3 you’ll find out what trait I’ve been fighting.  In Issue 4 you’ll read about a quirky measurement.

Here in Sunday & Southern Monthly in an attempt to bring a little southern style, charm, grace, and humor to you once a month, I publish a colloquialism favored in the South ~ a southernism.

My oldest daughter recently turned 5.  She’s developed a stubborn streak a mile wide.  I’m tempted to tell her this when she tries my patience ~
