Also, do yall consider Florida to be the south? Why or why not? And what's the gnat line? is it just what it sounds like? ( We live in the mountains, so we don't really em here!)

Thanks!
Yes, IMO northern Florida and even the interior areas of the central and southern portions of the state (towns like Ocala, Leesburg, Sebring, Wauchula, Winter Haven and Pahokee) are quite Southern.
The 'Gnat Line' is basically the borderline between the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of the South. I'm just grateful that I live above it in the summer.

I will be just a bit more charitable though, my friend. I am sure there are a random few Southerners out there who truly don't care for fried okra. Unfathomable as it might be. I have yet to meet one...but law of averages says it must be so in some isolated and remote quarters! Now, I think a LAW is that one cannot be a true Southerner if they never even heard of it!
My KIDS even love fried okra! Dang now I may have to fry some up tonight, diet be danged!

Mmmmm red-eye gravy or with biscuits or anything else for that matter!

We went to a flea market and one of the booths was selling country ham, bacon, sausage, cracklin's, etc. We bought some ham and my son was with me. The man working the booth asked my son how old he was, to which he responded 11. The gentleman told my son that he has young men his age up to 16 working his farm for all the can eat and would teach him how to cure country ham and make the bacon and so on. My son, who has never even been to summer camp, was more than willing to leave me to learn this craft lol He wanted to come back to teach my husband and I how to do it also. I thought that was cute.

Here's one...I don't like to be in the same room with okra. I can handle is in gumbo or something like that where it's falling apart, but fried? Ick.
