Types of gravel

Load of gravel in the kubota.

I switched from the largest rip rap gravel to the 3-4 inch gravel and it seems to be a better fit for our troubled spots.

I can tell you are not a "native" of SW VA, my inlaws would call it "Gravels" as in plural! Used in a sentance "We had more gravels put on the road..."

Then there is that other southwest VA expression I had a problem figuring out when I met my Wise county inlaws. "I don't care to.." I thought it meant that someone did NOT wish to do what you just asked them to do. No, in fact, it means the TOTALLY OPPOSITE!

Does Marks Ohio family have any sayings or such that you had to figure out Anna?
