    I have a pet medication business and several times a week some one from Kentucky will call and want to find out if there is a dealer for us in their area or did they just need to order form me, i'll ask them where they live and 95% of the time the answer will be.. I live in Hopkins county Ky, or I live in Monroe county KY or I live in Christian county Ky .so then I have to ask..what is your county seat.. aw..its Madisonville, or Bowling Green, or Hopkinsville..Now why wouldn't they just tell the town to start with?? I never have anyone in the whole rest of the US every give out a answer like this..Its nothing wrong with it but it just puzzles me.. I'm sure there is a simple explanation. thanks!!

    I worked in KY most my adult life. Left enough tax money over there to shoot my mouth off.(I'm a "Who's yer Daddy".)
    Ky. is a "commonwealth". The counties couldn't quit fighting long enough to pull together a real state. Too many feuds. ie see the movie, "Next of Kin". When they answer what county they are from, they are telling you how big an army yer up against.
    For goodness sake, sell them what they want. Give em a discount for being in Ky. In fact ya might come out to the good offering barter. Great hams and preserves. LOL

    Its like that here in parts of Tennessee too.IMO its because there are so few people in the counties outside the counties with cities ie. Nashville,Memphis.when football season comes around its the counties that play. this week Lewis County will be on the road, they play Wayne Co_One public in the Co, so they go by the county.When I go to Pulaski, I go to Giles co. JMHO smokey

    See Keith, this place is a gold mine of information. Now in Ky. an south IN. someone will tell ya they are giving ya a "cold check". That means it's post dated so hold off till the right date.
    At the bank a "cold check" is one with insufficient funds. You went head put it thru, fore the milk was at the dairy, LOL.
    I still know a place down Ky. ya can put cash on a stump, ring the bell.....leave for 20 minutes & come back ; an the jug will be on the stump.
    Safer with cash I think, but I did leave a box of 15 Winchester slugs one day when things were a lil tight, and a pint jar was on the stump when I came back. That's the barter part I mentioned.

    Man, Blkcloud, I am from crittenden county as well. Which is the town of Marion, same as Tanner. To me cold checks must freeze solid and gel because they really bounce. Hopefully you hit that guy in the head with the brick when you throw it through his window.
