You Did Not Cuss Around My Grandma Carr

My great-grandmother Winnie Haley Carr was a devote Episcopalian. According to my grandmother, one did not cuss or say anything that might resemble a cuss word around her. So, her husband Baker Carr was often heard to say “Ding-it-all-to-grass!” in place of “darn” (or something else!).

This brought all kinds of laughter and giggles around the room and especially to the younger generations when my grandmother shared this.

    That’s so funny! He certainly was creative! Dag-nab-it and such was often used with the elderly church goers, but “Ding-it-to-all-grass”, well that’s a blast!
