    Back teeth are "floating"? Never heard that, also missed "sweeper".

    Growing up we had a 'carpet sweeper'. Used for cleaning up small messes. Completely manual, no electric, just push it, similar to this:

    Wasn't a sailor either, but "head" is the first thing that popped into my southern mind. 34-35.

    Looked up "back teeth floating", means "the intense need to urinate". Never heard of the phrase, but I lucked out on it anyway.

    That's one i missed also. Now, i've used "my eyeballs are floating" for that intense need to urinate. Never teeth floating.

    Sweeper is one that got me to. Both sets of my Grandparents were dirt farmers and even they called it a vacuum cleaner.

    It shows the map of U.S. counties by ethnicity.
    Purple in this map means "African-American," and the yellowish area is "American" (not sure what that means). You will noticed the southern states are mostly yellowish and purple, while the northern states are "German," or "Irish," etc.
    This map lends credence to Granny of the Beverly Hillbillies who described the Civil War as the "war between the Yankees and the Americans."

    I wasn't in the Navy or anything, but I sail sailboats.

    I've usually heard Russian racehorse. I always wondered why the Russian horses had a greater urge than other horses.

    34 of 35. I guessed cats rather than turtles. I’ve never heard of a herd of turtles.

    My grandmother never called a vacuum cleaner anything but a sweeper.

    A little surprised at how pervasive Germanic ancestry is (of which I am) in the middle and northern tiers. Offhand it looks to be THE largest representation, if I'm reading it correctly.
