You Betchya.

Exchange between two old codgers, overheard recently at a Minnesota rest area off of Interstate 94 on an (86° F) day:

“Well, we could have snow in November ya know.”*

“Yah, that’s true.”

“I hope the winter’s mild. I like when it’s mild.”

“Yah, me too. Then it’s not so cold.”

Graphic with Minn outline + Yah, sure, you betchya.
