        Sure Earnest, Holle was on a skeet shooting team at one time.  My wife has her own shotgun and a pistol too.  Southern girls aren't that vulnerable anymore!  Not too many instances of rape here in Georgia.....unless the women use their guns!

        Earnest, I got a 12-ga shotgun as a wedding present from my father!! I also won 2 skeet-shooting championships! I sleep with that shotgun by my bed every night, along with 2 very protective Great Danes. I ain't afeared!!

          So you are what we call a good "snap" shot. Fast reload and accurate. I should imagine you girls are pretty safe then! lol
          A 12 gauge at close range is absolutely deadly. As you would know, with a solid shot they will cut a piece of 2x4 hardwood in half up close.
          My dad only had one hand, but was a helluva snap shot! He used to drive and shoot at the same time, not easy with one hand. I miss the bush sometimes. smile

    "The preacher man says its the end of time
    and the Mississippi River she's a going dry.
    The interest is up and the stock markets down
    and you only get mugged if you go downtown.
    I live back in the woods you see,
    my woman, and the kids and the dogs and me.
    I got a shotgun and a rifle and a four wheel drive
    and a country boy can survive. Country folks can survive."

    On a side note...I'm glad the brakes were engaged on that wheelchair.

    There is a joke here in Texas:  In a store full of shoppers, a woman is examining a corked bottle.  She pulls out the cork with a pop, and everyone else in the store ducks and comes up holding a gun at eye level while the woman with the bottle stands there reading the lable.  It's kind of like that, except with white sheets, and accountants who wear their little guns tucked under their beer bellies to complete their ensemble and give them street cred.

      Never heard that expression before, but I can guess what it means!
      Is it local or a generational thing?
      Does she really need to worry about someone's toodles? She must be 100!

        Originposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Well, I don't remember hearing "toodles" before that, but I pretty much knew what she was talking about. The thing has so many slang terms, it's going to need it's own thesaurus.

                I just worry about social deviants who think they can take advantage of senior citizens and rob, rape, and murder them with no consequences. Given the choice my money is on Grandma every day.

                  I gotta agree.  I think anyone planning on breaking into that old lady's house and taking her jewelery or whatever else deserves what they get.

                  Not sure why owning a gun, made legal by the Constitution, represents a shocking piece of evidence that Southerner's are out of control and radical.  I mean, I realize the English monarchy ruling over the colonies might have thought such a thing was radical, but I'm not sure why an American citizen with rights and freedoms given by that same Constitution would think that.

                  Unless the "radical" thing is her use of the word "toodles" in which case, I would say those Southerner's are just having some dialectical fun more than doing anything radical or out of control.  Slang is okay.  There's no real threat there.

        I must say in my long experience living in the South, and I am only following her inference as to the definition of “Toodles,” but that’s the first time I have ever heard them called that. Funny Funny Stuff.
