I got off work early today and that is a good thing. I needed to get home and get everything ready for the storms and cold weather rolling in tomorrow. I ran out of kindling for the fire place so I had to make some by splitting wood over and over and over again. I really miss the old farm when it comes to things like this. It was so easy to walk out the back door and be surrounded with enough wood to last a lifetime. Now the only tree in my yard is a old mesquite. I have to really watch it now and that is why I need to get my solar oven built.
I was talking with a guy I work with today about my new adventure with this blog.
Hold on, let me back up. One of the reasons I started this blog is because I have had so many people tell me I need to write a book about my life as a redneck. I would tell them stories and situations I have been in and when they finally stop laughing and wipe the tears from their eyes, that's when they tell me to put it on paper. I have thought about writing for some time now, but the one thing that always comes up is, I'm not done living yet. I figure this blog is a way to tell my stories and at the same time, write down the new adventures that come up.
So anyway, I mentioned the Modern Day Redneck blog to this guy at work right after I told him one of my stories and him telling me I needed to write a book. He looked at me kinda funny with his head cocked to one side and said, "But your not a redneck". I was stunned. This was one of the first times in my life I did not have anything to say. Finally, after some time and some very deep thought I asked, "Then what do you think am I"
I think I'll invite him over this spring during the chicken harvest and then we can fire up the pit, pop open a cold one and have us a good old chicken fry.
Not a redneck, now that's funny, whats he thinking?
