Born here and don’t have any plans to leave until the good Lord punches my ticket.

Been living on the same place since I was 5 minus a year and a half when my wife and I lived in town for that time till we put our house on the farm.

I moved here in 1978 from Virginia .Hired in with Brown & Root over the phone to work at the Sooner Power Plant. Got laid off after the job was about done. Tried to find another construction job somewhere. I applied at the (then) Conoco Refinery to keep my unemployment going and they hired me. 40 years there and I retired. I don't think I ever move back. Va. is going too Liberal.

Right here
Back many years ago I was working construction in Houston and had this one Cajun always referring to me as a Yankee. I told him I was born and grew up in Kansas, but had since became an Okie. He told me, "Anyone north of the Red River is Yankee and anything north of Oklahoma was a Damn Yankee." And he meant it! Guess I'm still trying to figure out if I'm a Yankee or Damn Yankee! :)
A yankee is one who's passing thru. A damn yankee is one who's here to stay.

Okie born and raised. Left in 75 for work returned in 80. Spent a yr in Ill., a yr in Ind., and 3 yrs in Kan. Don't expect I'll be living anywhere else.
