My mom on the news...

My mom on the news about a local problem: Link



  1. Hi Kent,

    Your Mom has a wonderful Southern accent. I assume you do too. Now when I read your words, that's what I'll hear.

    Isn't it funny that it's always other people who have accents? I have to wonder if anyone has ever remarked on my Las Vegas accent.


  2. I've moved around a lot. My southern accent may have been modified by living in Colorado and Pennsylvania.

    I think I sound like Bullwinkle. You could watch this video where I am interviewed... if you dare.

    When I lived in CO I began to hear my mom's (and other family members') accents. Now that I have moved back here I don't hear it so much anymore.

  3. Hi Kent,

    I took your dare, and you certainly don't have much of that Southern accent.

    Bullwinkle? Nah, I don't think so, but I'll bet you can do a great imitation. "Hey Rocky, watch me pull some liberty out of my hat!" "Again?"


  4. Of course, I have lived back here for the past 3 1/2 years, so I may sound different, more southern, now than I did then.

    Sometime I plan to make a video blog. I just haven't yet found the proper subject matter or the opportunity. When that happens you may get a chance to make a comparison.

    I really should start thinking seriously about that video blog. Hmmm.
