Okay, of all the things I had to say. "Howdy?"

Welcome!
I worked in the 70s and 80s with a fellow suburban Detroiter, a Jew who loved to celebrate Christmas and taught our newsroom Yiddish expressions, sometimes leaving me farblondjet. She was a smart woman, a joy to work with. But she picked up two expressions and for a few weeks at a time, did'em each to death: "Boy Howdy!" and I can't recall how she used it, and "Ain't that about a willie?" long before the Clinton presidency.
So if your howdy comes with a Texas twang, it's good. Hers had a distinctly Michigan sound.

Howdyoodoo?

Yes, quite. Enjoy the amibance here, this is as good as it's gonna get.

A customer actually asked me the other day:

Quote
"If I say 'howdy' and I'm from New England, is that racist? Is it, like, 'their word'? Like, only cowboys can use it?"

He was completely serious. I didn't know how to answer.

Bluesummers, it's just a slang term as far as I'm concerned. I find it stereotypical and usually don't like using it outside of just being funny.

Fair enough. Same here, ol' chap.

I'll keep being annoyingly faux-cockney until I get my right honourable friends from across the pond riled up, wot wot!

As long as I don't get "Where do you park your horses?" I got that all the time when I lived in Saint Louis for a few years. We DO have cars, you know.

Seriously? Horses? wow...and St. Louis isn't really that far from there, comparatively...

Hey, where did you get your monocle? Can you set me up an appointment with your monocle-smith? And your haberdasher, if you please, my good man.
