Why is this called “Here’s you a blog”?
During the summer of 2010, my husband Jeff and I took a month long camping trip from Florida to Lake Erie and back, and while we were in Elkhorn City, KY, I blogged the following about the local accent:
“My favorite example of the accent comes from my trip to the post office. The incredibly sweet and friendly woman at the counter decided I needed some fancy stamps, since I was mailing cards. She said, “I lahk puttin’ purty staymps own cards. Here’s yew a dowg.” (Here’s you a dog.) And then she put a dog stamp on my envelope. I’m still grinning, hours later, just thinking about how cute that was.”
This began a series of blogs that always ended with a picture of some dog I would see on our trip, usually in a funny situation, but sometimes it was just a dog. Either way, it always had the caption, “Here’s you a dog.” Anyway, the phrase sort of grew and took on a life of its own and I realized I could apply it to just about anything, including my blog. So, here’s you a blog!
