    Real rednecks don't use words like trauma, intent, and central nervous system.

    Yep a redneck sign would be a circle with crosshairs and the wording would be "If ya can read this your in range."

    I'm not.

    I'm a hillbilly.

    I’m neither a redneck or a hillbilly. But I have a fairly extensive line of white trash in my blood from one side of the family.

    Let’s just put it this way. When that side of the family has a reunion at least half of them could tow their homes to it.

    Every time I pass that thing I'm thinking, "That's a stupid thing to post if they do have to defend themselves. The DA will have a field day."
    Then I wonder if he's one of us.
    I'll see if I can get a picture next week.

    I did some work for a family from my area. After all the legalese no trespassing signs on the way in,mthey have signs that read "just because you show up unannounced, without permission" "doesn't mean you will leave". With a 1911 silhouette and a track hoe silhouette at the bottom.

    Man I love that old bastard:) But his wife is the one to be scared of!

    I built a trebuchet, with a 14 ft throwing arm, and flung flaming pumpkins into the pond by my house. Got about 200ft out of it.
    Sorry, no pics. It was before cell ph cameras. But damn, that was fun.
    The neighbors loved it.
    It was for my friends wedding reception.

    My wife can drink more Busch Light than most men here. And I club a wounded squirrel with an old table leg while in my underwear in the backyard on a weekly basis. Hillbilly enough for you?

    I accept that challenge. When and where?

    I use a hammer handle for dispatch. I build for a living so an Estwing is usually handy:)

    I don't know how to do a screen shot, nevertheless transfer one from a phone to a pc.

    I showed my boss a text string between my wife and I this evening. He liked to have fell out laughing.

    I'll type it out word for word, misspellings and all.



    Wife
    Shot a snapping turtle in the
    yard, 4 times


    Wife
    It was in the driveway trying to
    get one of the turkeys


    Me
    Fun times


    Wife
    That was a couple hrs ago.
    Michael poked it just now
    and said it wasn't dead yet,
    so i shot it 3 more times


    Wife
    Girls have sewing class
    today. We'll be back home by
    6:30


    Me
    Ok. What are you shooting
    turtle with?


    Wife
    9mm


    Me
    Ok


    Me
    Maybe you should run over it
    on the way out for good
    measure


    Wife
    Ok


    Wife
    We are at sewing class now.
    Bologna sandwiches ok for
    supper?


    Me
    Yeah


    Me
    Or turtle. Whichever is
    easier


    Wife
    Ok. Depends on whether the
    turtle is dead or not when we
    get back


    Me
    Ok.

    You sir. Live the life of a man I wish to emulate. I get so jealous that you are so far away when I see your get togethers.

    At the same time I'm thankful your on the other side of NC as I'd own every knife that you sell, plus you would end up naming an area between two trees nearby as Nick's " not driving, hammock n' dumb stuff shall appear" site:)

    You’d think the turtles would be smart enough by now to avoid goin anywhere near Casa Hill.

    I have no cred to speak of in this department, but unlike the turtle, I am allowed to pass onto ThrillHill turf greeted by smiles and meals instead of bullets.

    I truly love my southern country heritage and my family has redneck leanings. I don’t know if I can really claim to be a redneck since I live in Raleigh and have a PE. I am the city slicker of the family. My great Aunt told me stories about having a pet skunk and we are from the hills of Wilkes County.

    I am definitely “that neighbor” though. I was in my garage, defleshing a deer skull that I had killed last deer season, when I noticed a bunch of my neighbors hanging out across the street. I walked out to the edge of the garage and said hey. They said come hang out. So I walked over with a knife and a halfway defleshed deer skull. Yeah, I got a bunch of weird looks and a “what are you doing?” Or two.... hahaha

    Close the thread, we have a winner. I've killed more deer than I can count but never one with my bare hands. Not sure this will be topped.

    I almost forgot to add. I asked my grandmother one time how my cousin and her new husband were doing. She said they were in the iron and steel business.

    Now considering they had their honeymoon at South of the Border (not even kidding) I wasn’t expecting that so I asked “what do you mean”.

    She said “She irons all day and he steals all night”.

    Lol....happens all the time. I understand where you're coming from. I never lived in town until I was married and had a child. I've gotten my fair share of strange looks but I'm also the one that fed near about the whole street when Matthew came through and left us without power and water for an extended period of time. Now I'm not so "strange" anymore.

    I was moved to tears of joy to discover while visiting with Bill & his lovely family, that okra pickles weren't just a midwestern country thing.
