Every time I go home and come back to Florida everyone says I come back with a accent. Before you say shot read the dictionary.

Good read. We make fun of how Boston people talk until we are in another part of the country. Then people ask me if I am from Mass. Living in the Berkshires, we talk a little different, just a little. Love Boston friendliest people in the world. Moving there in one year so my wife can finish her masters.

Kev, we have talked about this before. I have spent half my life in the Berkshires. From when I was about 8, till 17. Then back here till I was about 24. This last time, the last ten years. My mother is from here. My father, as well as me, are from a Reservation in Nebraska. I go back from time to time. As well as back to the Islands.

Being from the Midwest I found the New England accents quite amusing - Especially coming from thug types (made them sound much less meaner than they looked - a la Tyson). Did 4 years in Providence, followed by a long stint in the Berkshires (1992-2001). Warms my heart to hear the accent now and picked up a hint myself (now gone, I think). Perhaps I even crossed paths w/Kahuna74 in Pittsfield or Lenox without knowing it.

Oh yeah that's right sorry man my memory so bad I tend to forget I've always had a bad memory. I'd lose my head if it weren't screwed to my neck.

Lived south of Boston for 10 years (Stoughton 1990-1999). Took the commuter rail to South Station and then a short walk to Federal Street and my office. At the time speech coaches to help folks lose their Boston accent were available. Being a Connecticut native I never picked up a Boston accent, although when I moved to Georgia everyone knew I was a Yankee.

Grew up in Easton and lived in Becket for over ten years.

Wow jaw, could be. I live in the pitt, and worked in Lenox for Boston University at their Tanglewood campus. I miss that Job. I loved working with the kids. Now I work in the Testing Center at Berkshire Community College, nice, just not the same. In 1996, I worked at the Red Lion Inn for a year.

My wife worked at Cranwell for awhile late 90's to 2004. She was director of sales when we moved to Virginia.

Cranwell is beautiful. One of my friends worked there at the front desk.

My wife is curious about who your friend was. Obviously we understand if you'd rather not say. She knew people in sales at other area hotels, including the Red Lion. I really miss the Berkshires, especially fall/winter. Absolutely beautiful place to live. My wife hated the winters, and I'm getting accustomed to Virginia, though. 70 degree days in January are nice. Frigging cold makes my arthritis hurt.

Easton was country, now it's suburbs. Becket is the sticks, though. Bears in the yard were common in spring (one killed our dog on Easter Sunday, 1999). We had a large beaver pond across the dirt road we lived on.
People here in Va tend to think Boston when they hear Massachusetts. They don't know that Amelia is the Big City. Amelia has a strip mall with pharmacy and a small grocery store, a McDonalds, and a few gas stations. Becket had none of those things. One (sometimes two) small convenience stores that closed at 7 (9 in summer).

I'm from Jersey. The accent is as bad as the stereotype, for the most part. When I catch myself saying "cawfee" and "wawter" instead of coffee and water I realize how tacky I must sound to people from elsewhere.

I don't think your wife would know here she started in 2010, left to go back to the Humane Society in 2011.

That's interesting. I love the summer and fall here, but not the winter or spring. Some of the most beautiful fall foliage I have ever seen is here.
