You know you are a Redneck when ...

...you have to use a weedeater on your garden weeds

Mid-August in this territory is a tough time for gardens. Any weeds that have been overlooked use the summer rains and high humidity and turn into trees. The edges of the garden, overlooked in favor of more pressing garden chores, are out of control. So, this morning I debated between the lawn mower and a weed eater to see if I still had some vegetables.

It is looking better.

When you have to think about which beer can you were drinking from and which is the slug bait...

Dono, I'm glad I had breakfast already. Sorry, tobacco is nasty stuff in all forms.

I don't mind people chewing tobacco as long as they swallow.

When I was a child, my mother's uncle had a spittoon (sp) in his living room. That's what he called it, but now that I think back, it was probably one of those large metal milk containers with a handle on each side.

Whenever he had a chew, I would sit and watch him for as long as he chewed, just so I could see him spit the wad 10 to 15 feet into the spitoon. He never missed!

You know your a red neck when you use old toilets for flower planters and the flowers turn into weeds.

You know you are a redneck when, there is an old school bus being used as a barn. Usually more than one, in the yards too. :roll:

When you have to hang out of your bathroom window with your shower head in hand to water the garden because the hose is broken. ( I'm officially embarrassed)

Just hope you weren't taking a shower at the time . . . .
Well thank you so much :)

I can't take the credit, though, my four year old nephew though of it :P

Dang. You guys got me feeling bad. Maybe I should move my commode/flower pot to the backyard so no one can see it. :cry:
