Redneck to the Bone!

It's better to be what you are, than to struggle with what you're not. We get accused of being Rednecks, a lot. I guess there is surely some truth in it. Pop has a lot of sayings that he uses on a regular basis, and one of them is "If one person comes down the road and tells you something, and another comes down the road from another direction, and tells you the same thing, it must be so." So I guess we must be Rednecks.Not a very good picture,(my camera was acting up) but this is where we spend a lot of our Friday and Saturday evenings, if nothing more important comes up. It is a small community Auction House where all the locals gather. Most night's, it's just yard sales type things, but on occasion, they'll have things from an estate sale. Most of us can live without a lot of what passes through the auction, but then most of us will end up with a handful of things we simply couldn't pass up.You know what they say, "One man's trash, is another man's treasure." I have brought home some really nice things, but then I have brought home some pretty worthless items. Most night we are there simply to socialize with all the locals. They have a small section in the building when you can purchase a few fast food items, so if you don't feel like cooking, you can 'kill 2 birds with one stone'.(That saying may soon be cause for a visit to the Principal's office or jail. The Humane Society will be on us for speaking of killing birds with a rock.)Nevertheless, I thought I would write a piece about our favorite hang out. On occasion, we will forgo the auction to visit the local gathering of Bluegrass enthusiasts at the local jailhouse downtown.It's open to the public, and Free. A lot of the same folks visit there on a regular basis, so it's another nice place to socialize. I guess it's possible, if you looked up the word 'Redneck' in the dictionary, our picture would be right there.Oh well, I enjoy being a Redneck. Most of us are probably a little more Redneck than we care to admit.Till my next post, Happy Blogging!


  1. Feels just like being there!! I can hear the auctioneer calling!! Did you take home anything good? Come on now ~ show some photos ~ wanta see what ya got!!!

  2. I would like to go to the auction some time, but its seem I alway have the grands or doing something else, We have beem talking about going to the court house to hear the music, but we haven't got there either, maybe sometime we will. It is just a busy time, and don't always get to do what you would like to do, just do what we can do. HAVE A GREAT DAY!
