You Might be a Redneck (and Happy About it too) if:

1. The entire family is thrilled about yesterday's purchase of a used pickup truck.

2. Daddy's treat to Mama is to let her drive (30 minutes) it home all by herself whilst he hauls the minivan-load of kids.

3. Dusting the house is mainly centered around the dust caused by the baby chickens in the box in the living room.

4. The baby chickens have had their living quarters doubled by joining 2 cardboard boxes (with a little hole passageway) side by side.

5. The passageway for the baby chickens is rigged with Duck tape, so that no little baby chickens fall out.

6. The grass has not been mowed yet due to shopping for a lawn mower; and the phrase, "it doesn't really matter because no one can see us from the road." is thrown around.

7. The kids dress according to if anyone will see us today.

8. The kids are tempted with the possibility of their own garden patches, and their dreams are: sunflowers, beets, Bachelor's Buttons, carrots, and tomatoes.

9. Mama gets excited about finding a way (steam the eggs) to hard boil the freshest of eggs without having trouble peeling the shells.

10. Daddy and son design and create a raft to float in the pond in the hopes to watch turtles basking in the son.

Lovin' every minute! TTFN


  1. Chuckling here... :) We must live such similar lives although we do not have turtles (something I miss from my girlhood back east). We, too, have an old pickup (that I love to drive even though I get a cramp from the clutch that has to be pushed seemingly through the floorboards), chicks brooding on the front porch, still trying to master the hard-boiling of fresh eggs, dressing according to whether we are going to town or staying home (even me), but...we did have the 15 yo mow yesterday (company here on Sunday). :) I guess we're country rednecks, too. :)

    Have a blessed weekend! I'll be in touch about the pattern! ~Lisa

  2. Have you got your gun rack for the back window yet?

  3. Hi Sarah! I will need your email to send shrug pattern details...please email me at! Thanks. :)

  4. We share so much... lol. But I do wish we could not be seen from the road... :)


Thanks for visiting. I love to hear from you; comment away!
