After spending forty-seven years as an active pastor in six different communities, from very small (300 population) to medium sized (greater Boise is upwards of 400,000) Iíve met just about every kind of people you can name. I have some great memories, both good and bad, of some of those redneck types who have been my friends.

Examples range from the eight-year-old western Colorado boy who played cops and robbers after school with the neighbor kidówith real guns, a real tragic, near fatal occurrence. Then there was Elmer and Hazel. They were an uneducated (she had only completed sixth grade) couple who worked in an Army Ammo plant. They came into my office one day to hand me a paper bag well filled with U.S. Savings bonds and told me to use them to help the young pastor of a new Hispanic church start his education. It was just the start he needed and he earned a Masterís degree, went on to become an Air Force chaplain and now is an Air Force colonel with more than 20 years of service.

When a person takes time to get to know these folk they can be salt of the earth! Actually, theyíre a lot like the rest of society without the veneer. Some are untrustworthy and downright scary while others are very loving and compassionate people who would give you anything they have and spend whatever time and effort is needed to help you when they find out you have a need. With many of them what you see is what you get. They donít put on to many airs!

OK, here's options for you:
1. Bake her a chocolate cake with x-lax frosting. This will keep her out of your hair long enough to load the u-haul
2. Don't look back.
3. Bring pontoon boat and silver fleet to Florida.
4. Move very far south to Naples area.
5. Lay in large stock of Absolut

Ok,
Are you attracted to the redneck lifestyle or what? Of course Okechobee is now mostly, well you have to speak spanish. There are nice parts in Cape Coral, but the gestappo drives around all day looking for airstreams so they can punish the owners.

uhmmmmm, bake Chrissy a cake and the other neighbors also.

Actually, I grew up in redneck areas, and it is true that they can be some of the nicest people. Most are happy with their lifestyle, and see the rest of us as the odd balls. Chrissy could wind up learning from you, and could become a good friend and with the right bottle of absolut, you just might have fun!!!!!

Being an elitist, Theresa would have to go with Chopin Vodka, not Absolut!

Me gots no problem with redneck neighbors -- picture taken off my deck yesterday. And yes, covenants restrict me from storing my trailers on my lot. With the age of the old basswoods that has probably saved me more than once. The water is about at max of spring runoff augmented by rains 10-12 days ago. This same pair of geese successfully raised a brood in the same nest last year.

Last weekend I was talking to a friend who used to live in a redneck ghetto part of town, and she said those were the best neighbors she ever had. They'd always invite you over for a beer, they didn't work so they were home watching the neighborhood all day, and if they wanted to rob someone it sure wouldn't be in their own neghborhood, because they knew nobody there had anything good

Glad you got to meet your neighbor and got off on the right foot
