Just because (40)

Happy Fall, Y'all! 2Two reasons this printable came to be:

  1. It’s a little known fact, unless you know me IRL, that I grew up in Texas.  My dad didn’t want his kids to sound “uncouth or uneducated”, so he fought hard to ensure we wouldn’t speak with a Texas drawl.  “Y’all” was one of those banned words in the house.  Now that there’s nothing he can do about it, I love to throw it around every so often… kind of like a nails on chalkboard effect for him.  ;)  And, using just the phrase “Happy Fall” didn’t have the same panache, as it did with “y’all” at the end of it.  Sometimes, I like when things rhyme, too.
  2. In my opinion, Chicago has nice weather just 2 times per year – for a few weeks in the spring and a couple of weeks in the fall.  That precious time is now upon us!  And the copious trees around here… they’re just starting to turn GORGEOUS!  Seriously, if you’re looking to visit an amazing city, this is the time of year to see Chicago.

So, on those notes – Happy Fall Y’all!  (Beautiful leaves photos from Microsoft ClipArt - here and here.)

Happy Fall, Y'all!This printable doesn’t have to be printed… feel free to use the image on your blogs or on Facebook/Twitter… anywhere you want to share some fall happiness. 

This is the 40th installment in the Just Because series(Can you believe that there have been 40 of these already?!?  Go here for a reminder peek at the very first one, just under a year ago.)

Your comments about Texas made me smile. I, too, am from Texas and do not have much of an accent. I now live in Alaska and it always surprises people when they find out I am from the Lone Star State. Although, I do say y'all. :)

You can dress it up with pretty pictures, rhymes, or words like "copious," but "y'all" still connotes (and evokes images of) someone who is uneducated, uncouth, illiterate, ill-bred, and a vapid half-wit.

I guess I should be content that you didn't also adopt the "street" vernacular that has become so popular. Phrases such as "my bad" and "up in here" are even worse in what they say about the user.

Lastly--glad that you credit your father with at least attempting to "raise you right," in this regard. ;-) And, I think the correct grammar is "Happy Fall, All Y'all"

I am from Texas as well! I badly wish I still had my accent. I've lived away for too many years and it's slowly dying. :( Except when I get frustrated. haha Love the decoration by the way. Y'all can be added to any phrase and still sound good!
