I heard Jeff Foxworthy once say the definition of a redneck is a glorious lack of sophistication. I know I am not a dummy, but honestly, some things don't bug me like they would other folks.. The van parked in the back yard where it got stuck while I was using it to put tension on a tree I was cutting down? Yup, didn't bug me till I needed the van.. The Refrigerator on my front porch because I got it for free, its better than the one in the house, and I was waiting on warmer weather to get it inside 'cuz I have to dismantle the whole door frame and its cold out... The fact we have 2.2 cars per adult in this household.. Or the fact I grow my own food, butcher my own meat, and have a million kids in a semi-controlled rowdy motley crue? Yup.. I like my dad's work friend A. A lives a couple miles up the road from me. We almost dated the same girl (long story short, he did I didn't, but could have) have same circle of friends... Difference? He's an ultra big brain, an engineer with a phd big brain.. and has a very nice wife who is his equal in every way.. We both had a newborn son on the same month.. But somehow we sort of lost touch after he got married, and bumped into each other coming or gowing from OB appointments. Dad had dinner with him and his wife today. Said they'd love to come visit sometime. Sorta felt weird.. I'm the backwards kid around here, the wanna be farmer/homesteader while he is the image of sophistication.. So I ask my dad, he knows I'm still a bit backwards right? Dad said "yup, and that's all right". Gotta love good friends and parents! Hey, anyone wanna help me lug a fridge inside?
