Yep! I did know about the gals havin' their own hoopala. I also heard that the male waiters barely make it out alive. Talk about friendly DE!!! LOL! I'm sure that's an exaggeration. Right?!?

Now that red beet egg (or pickled egg thing) is very PA Dutch. They are good!! I don't even like hard cooked eggs, but red beet eggs make great deviled eggs. Pretty presentation with all the color.

When my hubby and I moved to WV from NJ we thought we would be greeted with open arms...ha-not so much. I still to this day feel like a big dope when I try to be nice to someone here(WV) and just get a blank stare back at me. My hubby doesn't even bother anymore.
Needless to say we have become a bit reserved and somewhat cold towards people!
All that is out the window everytime we visit DE. People are so friendly, at first we didn't know how to act!!!lol. My hubby and I came to the realization that we are just jadded from our experiences and we have to open up once again.
We had better open up fast as we are moving to DE in less than a month. What is so funny and refreshing is that our new n'bors are so nice that we are on a first name basis with all of them and we haven't even moved into our new home yet!

Happy Primary Day!

Beach..........Please put a bug in your husband's ear for me! If a 68ish, slow talking, clean cut guy, with a great big smile, starts up a conversation with your husband at the gas pump, tell him to humor my husband! He just won't quit, and never gets embarrassed when people just jump in their cars and drive away! I'm beginning to think it's a challenge for him! ....Kind of like......fishing!

Delaware Maryland and VA all are much friendlier than PA and NY..

South Jersey seems to be very friendly where as North Jersey is really snotty.

It's all relative, but Delawareans will tend to talk to ANYONE around them. I think it's nice.

That is funny! I think the exact opposite (except about DE). I have found thru living in MD, WV, NY, NJ and soon to be moving to DE that>>>
1) MD people are ok
2)WV people are very unfriendly to outsiders and change
3) NYers are in their own little world
4) NJ people think they are "elitist", but warm up very nicely... I am a Jersey native so maybe I am somewhat partial.
5) DE people seel to be all that wrapped into one. The most friendly, open to new people "coming into their town", and just a happy go lucky kind of laid back attitude.
This is just MHO pertaining to my own experiences.

Hey gang,

I too have found the vast majority of Delawareans to be quite open, friendly, and all around "down home" folks! VERY much like the area in southern Ohio (western, not eastern) I am originally from.

Now, as I posted elsewhere, the folks in central NC (no further locator necessary) were MUCH less friendly, despite the reputation for southern hospitality! Even after 15 years there, we never quite fit in or were as welcomed as we have been here in less than a year!

As far as the "language" goes... I think I'd better pull out my copy of Jeff Foxworthy's "Redneck Dictionary"... I do believe I'll put it to use HERE much more than we ever did in NC! Mainly because of nice folks like Delly's hubby wantin' to chat at the gas pumps! And yep, I've met the man, and he's wonderful! If he weren't already taken, and just a tad too old for me, not to mention I'M taken, he would CERTAINLY be my kinda guy!

Mary
