You actually like Church's Chicken.

You know where "P.V." is located.

You've been to Dave's skating rink on Third Street.

You remember when Big Daddy's on Elvis Presley was da bomb.

Your parents dropped you off at the Mall of Memphis.

You remember when Micheal Jackson and the Jackson family was on top of Woolco on Third and Florida.

You remember Club No Name or Da Expo!

You owned (or still own) a DJ Spanish Fly mix tape.

I had to explain to some out-of-towners why a strip club is called the "purple church!" Yall know which one, we've all been! :D

Is a "purple church" a strip club where church-going girls strip??

The air/heat in the same day fits NC too. :rofl:

"The Purple Church" is a strip club in a purple building that men seem to visit religiously!

I think its one of those things that everyone thinks is common to only their town. Like the phrase

"Well its (name of place). If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes"

Oh, ok. :rofl:

Bears, I agree but NC weather really does change all the time. We should have a 3 hour forcast in addition to the 3 day forcast. Our seasons are not "true". We have warm days in the winter and cool days in the summer. It's really bizarre.

How is Tennessee's weather? It seems that TN has slightly cooler temps. on avg. than NC even though you are our western neighbor. I think it has to do with our coastal climate making us slightly warmer.

BTW, congrats on 'yer new tower proposal in Nashville. I think it will be the tallest tower in the South. :thumbsup:
