Snow...Cold...Iowa....and...You Might be a Redneck....

Son, Justin, and Pal, Josh...are in their Glory, this morning... Out plowing Mountains of Snow! They work on these motorized buggies, all the time... and Dream of taking them out...and puttin' them to work!{they dug out the drive, by the Little Ford... and around my shop, and John's...It's Cold...Cold...Cold...and the snow is Deep! They were here, at the crack of Dawn...} These Boys, Kick Butt... at whatever they put their minds to....I had to put this 'Redneck' song on, for the Boys...They are Rednecks.... Hard working... fun loving...{and mischievous...at times...oh dear....} Family Men...True Blue... Tobacco Chewin' {not dope smokin'} Beer Drinkin'... profanity slinging{at times}... Flag Flyin', American Boys...and...Proud of it...And...I'm Proud of them...
I think 'Rednecks', have taken a bad rap... Rednecks believe in God... Family... having Fun... Being a Good Neighbor....would be the First to offer a hand....They don't ask for much...just to live life, and be free....They don't Judge...by Color...or Race....or Religion....and they don't care, who you Love...That's all your business...{they don't like drugs....or people that do them...or...lazy people....} Justin isn't much of a Hunter....Too soft hearted...He'd rescue a Deer, long before he'd shoot one.... if you are their Friend.... They Will have your back....{and...they aren't always Republicans...or Democrats...They Are Always.... Americans...} They respect Elderly People...and Drive Trucks...and don't mind Diggin' Ditches...they just Get 'er Done.....So...when I say, I'm a Red Neck.... I am...and...Proud of It....and Proud of the Boys...ahhh...Men....
{we don't believe in Automatic Hand Weapons... They need to be abolished...}

Oh when great minds are on the same track.....LOL!!! LOVE IT!! You have to read the post I made to facebook last night!!! Are you a redneck if your chicken gets drifted in on the front step, knocks (pecks) at the door and you go out and get her and carry her back to the coop....it was unanimous....YEP!!!!
Who knew Justin's machine had a cab!! ROCK ON!!!

I have a few of my own rednecks! And wouldn't want to find myself without them either! Love the song too!

Oh Honey...
Why do you think we get along so well... You and I...well we may get all dressed up... slick, and primped.... but, as Mammy said, in Gone With the Wind... "We're just Mules, in Horse harness...and we ain't foolin' nobody!" a.k.a. Rednecks... and, by the way... take it from an old Horsewoman... Mules are much smarter, than a Horse... {I Love 'em all... but it's true...tee hee!}
Love to Ya...

{I would have just open the door, and let her in... if she knows enough to knock... ahhh... let her in...}
I once had 10 little pigs, in the bathroom, for a week... it was way too cold out, for them...My room mate was... well.... very Pissed Off! I let her know who meant the most... and where the door was.... she learned to live in sweet harmony...with the piglets...

I love my redneck! And I am a redneck girl! He scooped snow, by hand, for over 5 hours today! I'm going to fix an appropriately grateful dinner! We redneck girls do that!
