Let's Hear it: You Know You're From Portsmouth When...

Hey neighbors, help us finish the headline.

So many of you have told Patch that you were raised in Portsmouth and either never left or left and then came back.

So, how does one know that you're from Portsmouth? We want to hear your answers in the comment section below!

Let's see who will post the funniest, most clever and most obvious. Ready? Go!

I remember 40+ quahogging skiffs off the beach in Island Park in some open water when the Sakonnet River was FROZEN all the way down to Fogland in the seventies..

You could be from Portsmouth if all the schools you went to (Wilson and Highland Grade Schools and the original Portsmouth High School) have been torn down. Bill Hart

You know you are from Portsmouth when you pronounce it "Porchmuth" and "Souty".

When you tell people who live more than 50 miles away that you're from "Newport...Rhode Island."

When I go to visit Portsmouth, and point out the college my mother went to get her LPN when I was growing up, it is no longer a college. What's with that, making me look foolish!
