A Hillbilly Way


You know you have a redneck father when....
  1. He crows like a rooster at the break of dawn.
  2. When his face is due for a shave and says, "My whiskers need a sheerin"
  3. He uses terms such as "gopher breath", "lizard lips" and "cow brains" as terms of endearment.
  4. And here's the funny one- Instead of buying new shoes he keeps wearing the old ones and ties 'em together with rubber bands for kicks and giggles.

Disclaimer: *This is not how Dad is in public because he has three girls monitoring his behavior. There are times when we fail and his inner redneck rears its ugly head!*

Your grace and poise has made me beam from ear to ear UNTIL NOW! How do you go from being an elegant lady to a satirical 'redneck' in a matter of minutes? I never know what I am going to get in the morning when I read your blog. I love you baby.

...so what does it mean if Gary is already suspiciously like this...

ha ha ha ha.....oh my goodness.

If it wasn't for you girls keeping him in line who knows what his shoes would look like! lol.

Dani, I fear Gary is already past the piont of being "suspiciously" redneck.

I have been looking to this blog all weekend... *your mom told me about it!* LOL, what a great pic! My husband has a pair of shoes like that, but instead of rubberbands, he used the yankee way of fixin' 'em... he epoxied the sole! LOL

And "Amen" to Rachel's comment about Gary. I think Gary's pic is in the dictionary next to the word "redneck" (LOL)

We have one "just like him" at our house....and 3 girls trying to keep him in line while out in public. He'd wear overalls to the store if we'd let him!
