Funny thing,

My wife is from the east bay and uses all those RRRR's injected into words such as wash. My grandparents were Romainian on the SF side of the bay. My parents were edjucated to speak properly(Berkely and Boulder). By the the time I came on the scene every person's diction was as proper as Walter Chronkite. And that's the way it was!
