FUN FACTS ABOUT MY REDNECK FAMILY

So, I come from the mountains, and I hate when people think I’m uneducated or weird because of my accent.  I was sitting here looking at ancestry though, and it occurred to me, I really do have an odd family. I know my post are completely random and off the wall, but here are a few interesting facts:

  1. My grandfather on my mother’s side..he had 3 women that named a son after him.  (He wasn’t very faithful as two of the mothers were pregnant at the same time.)
  2.  My father once got drunk and shot my pig.  (It was a piggy bank though, not a live animal.)
  3. My husband actually rides his lawnmower to the nearby gas station to fill it up with gas.
  4. I do own 4 dogs and 5 chickens. (Enough said.)
  5. My garden scarecrow is wearing Old Navy clothes and a I’ve had friends tell me he dresses nicer than them.
  6. We spent a large amount of time as children “pickin’ a switch”.
  7. I commonly refer to myself as my father’s “Mid-Life Crisis”…since he was almost 40 when I was born to him and his 17 years younger wife.
  8. I called my grandmother “Granny” and my children call my father “Pappy”.  Personally, I think it’s adorable.
  9. My mother has been pulled over on the interstate for going too slow.
  10. My father’s home remedy for a bee sting is to put chewing tobacco on the sting.  Did I mention it should already be chewed?
  11. My 8 year old had never used seen a real sprinkler system until vacation…and he enjoyed it more than the beach!
  12. My brother literally went to jail for shooting into an occupied dwelling. (He shot the ceiling.)
