[at-l] red necks??????
OK guys, I started this redneck stuff and want to end it. For the
record it was a generalzation that was incorrect. I know many folks
in the south and in fact have bailed hay, picked corn, dug potatoes,
milked cows at 4 in the morning, etc. and have met only the most
kindhearted and giving people. Some may not be the most sophisticated
in the world but their common-sense could make fools out of us all.

Subject: [at-l] red necks??????
Years ago when my friends and I were planning our first trip south of
the Mason Dixon Line, I was talking with my parents and made some
comment about how we hoped we wouldn't have any trouble with the
rednecks. My Dad bristled and in the voice he used when he was
dissapointed in me he said, "Come here girl...look at_my_ neck".
I did...it was red, red brown really and wrinkled and almost leathery
He said "It looks like that because I've spent most of my life out in
the sun and wind earning a living to support my family"
To him, it was a badge of honor. Kahley
PS. I buy from Cabelas...
Here in Pa, on of the most common items I find when picking up road
litter are Skoal tins...bad habits are universal.
