In honor of the unexpected and delightful publishing of a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird yesterday, I share my favorite Wondrous Words from the original book:
"North Alabama was full of Liquor Interests, Big Mules, steel companies, Republicans, professors, and other persons of no background."

what the sam hill he was doing
high and mighty
Now don't you fret, ma'am.

get Miss Maudie's goat
done a jim-dandy job
he's right stove up
cut it out this red hot minute
he's just moseying' along
we can't all have our 'druthers
Calpurnia shelling peas
pickled pig's knuckles
she was standing arms akimbo
