A Different Perspective on Rednecks

A Different Look
I received this a few days ago from a friend in Knoxville. I don’t know the author, but I enjoyed it and I thought you might like it also.

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. Ya'll know who ya’ll 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.

Have you got enough red neck in you to have the same beliefs as those above?


Fishing Report 
P1050907 We had a good day on South Holston Lake yesterday. We caught our limit of Lake Trout by 1:00 PM and then fished for rainbow trout, but didn’t have much luck. We came home with 8 lake trout and 1 rainbow trout.

We got checked by TWRA. They checked boater registration, fishing licenses, and counted the fish to make sure we were not over the limit. They told us they were checking real close these days because of reports of people taking more than the 2 per day limit of lake trout.

Joke of the Day

The other day, I happened by chance,
As I passed a mirror, to give it a glance.
And I wondered who that old man could be,
Who, with his mouth wide open, was looking at me!

His bald head was sprinkled with a little gray fuzz,
And he wasn't at all handsome (like I always was).
He looked like a sack of mis-mated parts,
Put together without aid of instructions or charts.

And while I know that my shoulders don't slump,
This person's were misshapen in one ugly hump!
Now, if that was my image, I only can say,
They don't make mirrors like they did in my day!
