You must be from Nebraska

Post  Peg Coover on Wed Nov 23, 2011 8:32 am

A facebook friend shared this yesterday:

Nebraska,
according to Jeff Foxworthy: If your local Dairy Queen is closed from
September through May, you may live in Nebraska. If someone in a Home
Depot store offers you assistance and they don't even work there, you
may live in Nebraska. If you've worn shorts and a jacket at the same
time, you may live in Nebraska. If you've had a lengthy telephone
conversation with someone who dialed a wrong ...number,
you may live in Nebraska. If you know several people who have hit a
deer more than once, you may live in Nebraska. If you have switched from
'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you may live in
Nebraska. If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging
blizzard without flinching, you may live in Nebraska. If you install
security lights on your house and garage, but leave both doors unlocked,
you may live in Nebraska. If you carry jumpers in your car and your
wife knows how to use them, you may live in Nebraska. If you design your
kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may live in
Nebraska. If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are
filled with snow, you may live in Nebraska. If you know all 4 seasons:
almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you may live
in Nebraska. If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car,
you may live in Nebraska. If you find 10 degrees "a little chilly", you
may live in Nebraska. If you actually understand these jokes, re-post
this so all of your Nebraska friends and others can see. You definitely
do or have lived in Nebraska.

haha! He wasn't from Nebraska, but my Great-Grandpa married a woman who he called (or she called, I don't remember) with a wrong number. It was towards the end of his life so they were only married a few yrs but talk about conversing with a wrong number!

I would prefer driving in the summer though, even with pot holes and construction. Very Happy

Very good timing, especially given that we have received a foot of snow and it's still snowing. I love driving fast in the snow. It feels like you're floating. I have run into 2 deer while running at 0400. Does that count?

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I think most of those apply to anyone who lives in the rural midwest.

I dunno, the Dairy Queen in my home town outside Boston is closed from Oct to May, and all the ice cream places here in Ga close in Nov and re-open in April.

That does sound like the Nebraska I know and love! I'm putting that on my FB wall too!

The DQ here near our house in IL closes for a month or two in winter. I told my husband that I thought they only did that in Nebraska! LOL! Laughing
