I've been struggling to find things to write about lately. While there have been several things occur over the past few weeks that would make for interesting blog-fodder, I'd rather not shine the spotlight on them just now. There are too many thoughts bouncing around in this little head of mine to make much sense of anything. So, instead of updating you on my life (which is feeling a little surreal right now) I'll pass along a southern-fried meme. I don't remember where this came from, but I've been saving it for a rainy day.
1. Have you ever gone muddin'?
Of course! We used to go “muddin’ at sunrise” in my friend’s Jeep. Of course, that’s back when I could stay awake long enough to see the sun come up.
2. Have you ever lived on a dirt/gravel road?
Yep. And it gets even better. I lived at the very end of a dirt road… in a camper… all summer long! I couldn’t find a rental house last summer while I was doing my internship, so a friend of mine let me stay at his camper on the lake. It was actually a lot of fun. I had a GORGEOUS view.. and the camper wasn’t one of those really nasty, trashy ones. It was pretty nice, as far as campers go.
3. Ever been swimming in a lake or river?
Absolutely. Like I just said, I lived at the lake all summer. Of course I went swimming!!
4. Ever been to a bonfire party?
More than I can count. I’ve also seen a drunken frat boy try to pull an Evil Knievel and jump the fire on a dirt bike. Never a good idea.
5. Have you ever driven a tractor?
No, but I have sat on the hood of a tractor while someone else was driving – and I fear that’s much worse.
6. Have you ever been on a horse?
7. Ford or Chevy?
8. Kissed someone in a pick up?
Yep. In the cab, and on the tail-gate.
9. What’s your favorite country song?
Fishin’ in the Dark by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band… or Cross My Heart by George Strait… ooooooh OR Amos Moses by Jerry Reed. Yeah… definitely Amos Moses!!
10. Ever done 90 miles per hour down a dirt road?
No…never quite that fast.
11. Worked / Lived on a farm?
Dated a farmer – does that count?
12. Been to a rodeo?
13. Do you own cowboy boots?
I actually don’t. But I do own steel-toe work boots.
14. Do you have a cowboy hat?
15. Have you ever said git r done?
Only when joking.
16. Country skyline or a city skyline?
Country skyline –definitely. Nothing like it.
17. Can you name a rodeo star?
Not one that’s alive. I know Lane Frost, but only because of the movie 8 Seconds.
18. Do you think tractors are sexy?
Not the tractor – but the hard-working guy driving the tractor
19. Ever rode a 4-wheeler?
Yep. Click here to learn how I almost lost a leg…
20. Are you from the country?
Not really… but I’m not from the city either.
21. If so, are you proud of it?
I would be, I guess?
22. Gone hunting?
Nope. I’ve helped plant deer plots and set tree stands, but never actually been hunting.
23. Gone fishing?
Oh yeah! I love fishing. Another perk of living at the lake all summer.
24. Is your heart in Dixie?
I live in Alabama, formerly known as the “Heart of Dixie” before they took it off of our license plates… so I guess so.
25. Been on a hay ride?
26. Have you ever line danced?
Not since grade school.
27. Camped under the stars?
No.. but I want to.
28. Have you ever been cow tippin?
29. Do you drive a pick up truck?
Nope – an SUV.
30. Fell asleep in a hay stack?
Negative. It’s kind of itchy.
31. Own a pair of overalls?
Nope. Not since I was 12.
32. Drank Moonshine?
Can I plead the 5th?
33. Include the word "yonder" in your daily vocabulary?
Not normally. I do say “reckon” a lot. As in, “Well, I reckon…”
34. Ever shoveled manure?
No. And I’m grateful for it.
35. Milked a cow?
No, but I have fed cows plenty of times.
36. Plucked a chicken?
Yuck. No. I have been inside a chicken house, though.
37. Is sweet tea your favorite drink?
It’s right up there with Dr Pepper.
38. Been to a race?
Never been to NASCAR, but my high school boyfriend used to drag race.
39. Know all the words to at least one David Allen Coe song?
Yep. The perfect country and western song…
“Well, I was drunk the day my Mom got outta prison. And I went to pick her up in the rain. But, before I could get to the station in my pickup truck, she got runned over by a damned old train.”
40.Have you ever made out in a back of a pick-up?
I think you should probably mind your own business. Nosey much??
