Just Figured It Out

Call me slow, call me out dated and you can even call me a Redneck but I just figured out how to scan and put the picture on the computer. I don't know about you but I am excited. Isn't technology something?

This is a hand sketched drawing of the cooking area project I am starting.
The big circle is the concrete around the fire pit (small circle) with a sitting wall half circling it on the back.
Right up from that is the dutch oven cooking area and then the 4x4 area is where the bread oven will sit.
Keep in mind this is ever changing. I have added the deep frying area and the prep stations that are not on the drawing but you get the idea.

Yall are in trouble now. I have folders and folders of drawing and sketches I can add now.

This is funny right here,
Last night was our turn to host card night with our friends D&R and right in the middle of our wild and crazy first game of Uno, a knock came at the door and In walked one of my redneck buddies and his wife from way back. I had not seen them in a long time and was wondering what the heck are they doing here. He shouted out, "I'm here for the party and you give crappy directions!". After several minutes of laughter coming mostly from me I finally got out the words that he was a week early for the party but we will go ahead and get one started. So I hid the dogs and put up whatever could be easily broke and took down the bottle of Wild Turkey.
It was good to see them again and we sat out back bringing up some long ago memories and laughed till it hurt.
Listening to this ol'boy talk and telling stories of what he has been doing for the past few years I quickly realized that I have progressed as a Redneck to more of a low key hell raiser and noticed I was really missing the old days. For some reason I was wanting to go out and burn something like a lawn mower or a car. Don't ask me, I just had a need to do it. I didn't though, but I still wanted too.
By the end of the night nothing got broke, no animals were harmed and nobody went to jail but I am out of Whiskey and I didn't even get one drop. What kind of Redneck party was this anyway.

Watch this video of my buddy. I have not laughed this hard in a while.


  1. You should have been like me and just ask one of the kids how to do it(lol)-but on a serious note id like to see some of your drawings/ideas-- like the meat smoker- i realy like that one- and the incubator box is ingenious... later yall- God Bless....Glo

  2. The kids did know what to do but when they would start to tell me how, my mind would just shut down. I had to figure it out on my own. Now that I know, They can do it for me from now on. LOL
