2. There are 5,000 types of snakes, and 4,998 live in West Virginia.

4. Squirrels will eat anything.
5. Unknown critters love to dig holes under tomato plants.
6. Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are ripe.

13. "Fixinto" is one word.
14. There ain't no such thing as 'lunch.'There's 'dinner' and then
there's 'supper.'
15. Sweet tea is appropriate for all meals, and you start drinking it when you're two.
16. "Backards and forwards" means, "I know everything about you."
17. "Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"
18. You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.
19. You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.
