Google Maps, Mapquest, GPS…these are all devices that give directions; however, in the South, there is one word to describe all types of directions…yonder.
“It’s over yonder.” We all know where yonder is. It’s past the church, around the corner at town square, and through the cotton field. Ok, ok, yonder is a different direction for everyone, but it helps a Southerner give directions to a distinct place.
No matter where your yonder is, all Southerners know one thing: yonder is anywhere below 39, 43…the Mason Dixon line.
