Monday Meanderings.

Up at 04:30AM and had coffee with my bride, then at 05:30AM she launched for work at the truck company. No second job tonight.

Another rainy and grey day today with temps in the 40’s, I am hoping for a couple of 60ish sunny days for the kid’s to finish the roof.

Donna sent me this from work.

This is very good!  Not the usual type of redneck jokes we hear.
We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It's time to
take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that
values home, family, country and God. If I had to stand
before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd
choose a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up.
Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's what rednecks are
made of. I hope I am one of those. If you feel the
same, pass this on to your redneck friends.
Y'all know who ya are

You might be a redneck if:It never occurred to you to
be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God..'

You might be a redneck if:
You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a redneck if
:You still say ' Christmas'
instead of 'Winter Festival.'

You might be a redneck if:
You bow your head when
someone prays.

You might be a redneck if:
You stand and place your
hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem

You might be a redneck if:
You treat our armed forces
veterans with great respect, and always have.

You might be a redneck if:
You've never burned an
American flag, nor intend to.

You might be a redneck if:
You know what you believe
and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a redneck if
:You respect your elders and
raised your kids to do the same.

You might be a redneck if:
You'd give your last dollar to
a friend.

If you got this from me, it is because I believe that
you, like me, have just enough Red Neck in you to have the same beliefs as those talked about in this email.

God Bless the USA !


Keep the fire burning, redneck friend.



I did look in the mirror though just to make sure.

Well that’s about it for today, I hope all of you are safe and enjoying this great country of ours. We hope to be enjoying it with you soon. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..
