She was from Illinois….

She didn’t pronounce the “s” at the end of Illinois and found it somewhat annoying to hear people who did.

She had no problem spelling or pronouncing “Des Plaines.”

Everything south of I 80 was Southern Illinois.

She knew the phone number to Empire Carpet.

She had sometimes turned the switch from heat to AC in the same day.

She was slim as a sapling and as pretty as a speckled pup.

She was from Illinois.

Taking one day at a time, and enjoying life in the heart of Dixie. People create their own questions because they are afraid to look straight. All you have to do is look straight and see the road, and when you see it, don’t sit looking at it – walk. There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
