About half of the Czechs that settled in Texas were actually from Moravia. Many of them spoke a Lassky dialect of Czech. For example, most Czechs use the word "dnes" for "today", the Moravian dialect uses "dneskaj" pronounced NE-SKIY. The Czech words for boy is chlap or hoch...the Moravian is ogar. If you listen to the older folks, sometimes you can pick out the differences.

Yes, my family was mainly from Moravia... and my dad told us that it was fighting words to call someone Bohemian... kinda meant cheap, white trash, etc... Funny, now we like being called that.

Haha, I have been to Moravia, Tx before... actually saw Bill Pekar play there. Good times!

Another joke about Bohemians was....if someone called you a Bohemian you said, " I'm not a Bohemian; I'm Czech. Bohemians live in the country, Czechs live in town."

Nope, not Wilber. Clarkson, which is a decent clip north of Wilber. There's a huge Czech population in Nebraska and I was always in Clarkson for Czech Days, a heritage festival with a rodeo and carnival.

Pekny and Kucera stock here. We were Bohemes. Maybe the Moravians went to Texas while the Bohemes went to Nebraska?

Mouth,

We are related some how down the line. My grandma was a patek, and my great grandfather was Joe Patek (from Joe Patek's Orchestra).

Pookbck, yep, we are distant relatives, as Joe Patek is also my great great grandfather. I'm from the Jerome part of the family. (The Patek reunion is in February, I think.)

You know what is funny, mostly the swear words seem to last the longest in the Czech vocabulary. Heh.

If your grandmother never asked you to "show me your pupek", you must not be from a true Czech family. My Great Grandfather would fight you if you called him a bohunk or bohemian. He was adament that he was Moravian. I always hated jitrnice! My great grandparents rarely spoke English, so I picked up a lot of Czech as a kid, but lost most of it because I never continued to speak the language. My Grandmother would give me her Vestnik newspaper from the SPJST when I was a kid and it had Czech lessons in there every month. My grandmother and her sisters would speak Czech when they didn't want anyone to know what they were talking about, and they would always make me leave the room, because I knew enough to figure out who or what they were talking about.

SPJST - Some People Just Stand There

Honestly though, if anyone wants a good read, look for "We're Czechs" by Robert Skrabanek. He grew up in Snook area. Some of his stories related very well to the days back in Ennis. Including detailed descriptions of making jitrnice and saurkraut (both of which, even though from Czech parents all the way to great-grandparents, I refuse to eat).

Sauerkraut is an acquired taste. But it is pretty good on a sausage in a bun with some mustard on top.

I love sauerkraut and klobase sausage on rye bread with mustard.

Try Greens Sausage House in Zabcikville (Hwy 53 east of Temple). Great kolaches (esp. poppyseed) and they now have sauerkraut and sausage kolaches.
