A piece of wisdom from my Grandpa Wally
To a European a Yankee is an American
To an American a Yankee is a northener
To a northerner a Yankee is a New Englander
To a New Englander a Yankee is a Vermonter
And to a Vermonter a Yankee is someone who eats apple pie with cheddar cheese for breakfast.
Bring on the pie.
