Goodbye, Minnesoootans!

Oh my garsh! Last week we lost anotter family on de street when dey moved back to Minnesooota. Our neighbors, all abowt Big Surprises, planned a hawt deesh picnic an stuff to say goodbye.


We'll miss dem Minnesoootans, dontcha know, dough we prawbly won't miss all de hockeyage. Because our street fer sure looked like a rink most of da time. Only dey wore roller blades steada ice skates.


We got used-tuv-it dough. Because dem Minnesoootans are fer cute. Even with de hockeyage an stuff alla time. But dontcha know dey got pretnear de whole dern neighborhood addicted to hockey, so it looks like we'll be seeing dis fer de next tirdy years anyways.


We'll miss dem Minnesoootans. Dey've bin here abowt five years now. And we're sad to see dem go. As youse can see...


Goodbye Minnesooota Family! We loved having youse as neighbors.

What a cute family! Good job on the accent! I hope someone good moves into their house! We are in desperate need of a family with KIDS on our street. Not teenagers...KIDS.

Never mind...what am I saying??

TM, I'll come be your neighbor! ;) I'm ready for a move. Although Carla has a house for sale across the street from her. Your street looks pretty darn fun though!!!

Hahahaha...great post! It's always sad when friends need to leave...but how exciting to get new neighbors, too!

Dawn said...

LOL... Upon first read, I was thinking, "Boy, TM usually is such a better typist/speller." Then, I got what you were doing ('cuz I'm quick like that! Heh!) and had to laugh! I've got a few MN friends and can say that you've got the accent spot on!

Sad to see good neighbors leave. But, exciting to see who your new neighbors will be, right?!

You are so creative and hilarious! I hope they read this post...what an incredible family to have made such an impact on your accent LOL.

Actually what an incredible neighborhood! Reminds me a bit of my younger years. How much fun, so many kids, friends and years of memories made!

Hope you get to stay in touch!

What a fun neighborhood! Though I didn't understand a word of all that, I only speak Texan. :)

Hooray for the Minnesotans! You certainly gave me a smile this morning. Oh yes, Minnesoootan, with heavy emphasis on that long O. :) How very appropriate to have a hot dish dinner. LOL

As native Texans, living here in MN, we do love the accents of our friends here. We've been here almost 9 years, and heck, we even have a few long O's in our vocabulary.

Minnesotan's are the nicest, nicest people! I'm sure you'll miss their presence.

Everytime you talk about your neighborhood I am reminded of where I grew up! And I am totally jealous! We have an elementary school a 1/2 block away, you'd think we'd have more young kids - seems we are on the teenager block.

You've got us pegged don'tcha know! :-)

Janet said...

I wonder if you would think I had an accent, eh?

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Too funny.
Looks like fun!

discombobulated said...

Whew. That was difficult to read (and annoying because I'm slow).
Glad you had a fun farewell bash.

Tammy said...

LOL! That tickled me.

You DO know I'm from MN, right??

It's a good thing mockery is a routine element of my kind of humor.

I just feel the need to say "Uff-dah"!

Jennifer said...

What? No, "Yah, you betcha?" It's just Norwegian shoved sideways through English. Just keep those vowels nice and flat. Besides, everyone knows when it comes t hockey, Cheeseheads rule.

Ok, fess up, did Mr Rogers used to live on your block as well?? Because good grief, I didn't even know that neighborhoods like this existed anymore! Ok, add to mental checklist, look into homes in areas that still have block good-bye parties!

How did I miss this?

Yes, good job.

But for the record, I don't ever say dem or dey. I say them or they. But I do know some people who never use the "th" sound :)
