My father is from Buddha. Born and raised.

And since it's not on the map, my hometown of Pinhook isn't listed. It should be.

Oh, one more thing - Buddha is pronounced "Boody." No lie.

Oh, yes, pronunciations are a matter unto themselves. Down there by you there's La-FAY-ette and Ooltewah (ood-wah). And you might drive on Houston Mill Rd (house-ton) in Atlanta.
