Sorry for the title, but I was just sitting here making out the invites for a show I have soon. It has reminded me just exactly how "Country" it is where I live. Listen to some of these street names....

Fishback Lane
Gypsy Ridge Road
Possum Hollow Road (saved the best for last)


Anyone else got any street names like that to share?

These aren't redneck names but when DH and I moved to Las Vegas we looked at a house that was on Captin Kirk Dr and almost bought a house on Bronco Buster Ct...what are people thinking?

Oh man!! I bet that is where my son will live when he grows up!! He is a huge Ninja Turtle fan. That is too funny. I guess whoever developed the subdivision is one too.

Sonds like thay all need to have cooking shows on that street!

For all of those from Indiana, you will appreciate this from an e-mail I got a while back....

You know you're from Indiana when you determine distance in time - ex. two hours south, etc!

Or, you know you're from Indiana when you use I-65 as a landmark!:rolleyes:

Oh wait, here's more...

You know you're from Indiana when....

You know several people who have hit a deer.

You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

You know what's knee-high by the Fourth of July.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?" or "Who are you gonna go with?"

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, or grain.

Pop is a drink, not a sound.

You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

You consider being called a "Pork Queen" an honor.

You carry jumper cables in your car.

Hey, I just love this place!:D

I grew up in a redneck town called Aynor and all of the above things could also work for Aynor. We have an annual festival called a Hoedown...Everyone always get a crack out of that. Growing up I was involved in lots of beauty pageants and in the hoedown pageant you had to go barefooted....it's so funny!

example: drive north 5 miles then turn east. Take that road for another 2 or three miles and on it's located on the south side of the road. :D

I remember my Grandma saying I could find the bucket in the north barn on the the west side. Then my looking at Dad with my "huh?" face, and him saying, "The big barn on the left Sis!" :p

and in Alabama we give directions such as "When you see the big oak tree take the second paved road after it, then turn right when you see the Water Tower, the house will be in the second curve on the left"

These are great:D I had to leave the above one with my message, since I live in Dole's hometown! I can tell you how to get to his house if you're ever here & want to see it! And...it's about 5 blocks north & 2 blocks east!! Just had to add that in; isn't it great to be from the country:D :D

Too many to pick which one should get the award

This is funny! It makes me want to look at my map in the phone book because I know we have some funny ones here to. :p


How about the city Hell in Michagan ( Maybe I'm a redneck if I can't spell one of the 50 states:p )?

We went to 'Hell' when we were on our honeymoon on Grand Cayman Island. I even took a picture of the PO because my Mom works for the USPS.

Here we have numerals going NS and letters going EW. So, some lucky people get to live on F 1/4 Rd or 18 3/8 Rd. Sometimes they use decimals: D.3 Rd or 29.3 Rd. To make it more crazy, a county road is called Rd (26 Rd) but will turn into St in the city (26 Rd turns into 1st St). So, you need to be clear if you're going to 28 Rd or 28th St because they are certainly not the same!!

actually, I think the subdivision developer is a fan of great Italian art!

I'm guessing that there isn't a life-sized copy of Michaelango's "DAVID" at the subdivision entrance"!
