You Know You're A Redneck If...

So, my family has been here for over a week now and I have had to split my computer time with them. Needless to say I drew the short straw and haven't had much time to do anything. That, and Comcast decided to give me coal for Christmas (ie the internet didn't work for more than 24 hours). OUCH! I didn't think I was THAT bad. Apparently I was wrong and/or forgot some of my misdeeds this past year.

Well, I have to share a funny because during this extended visit I have realized that we (my family) will never socially mingle with the Trumps, the Rockefellers, or the Hiltons. We feel more at home with "our kind." Yes, you know who they are... I am sure you all have heard Jeff Foxworthy- You might be a redneck if... Well, we didn't meet our spouses at any family reunions. We don't have a constant yard sale going on in front of our houses and I didn't have to move an engine in order to take a shower this morning. I did, however, walk outside to get the cold water out of my "freezer."

So, I realized the definition of a redneck is someone who uses what they have... What good is living in the snow if you don't take advantage of the cold and keep extra stuff outside. (I just thought you all should know- this is in my FRONT yard. Yeah, we belong in a trailer park, don't we? If you are offended by that comment- deal!)
