You Know You Are In The Country..

Going to the family reunion over the 4th was fun but it also provided some humor that I thought you could truly appreciate. I know that my sister-in-law and I got a big kick out of it.

First of all, if you are going to have a family reunion in Mississippi, do NOT call your family photo session "Clan Pictures". There is something just WRONG about that on every level.

You know you have arrived in the country when your directions include making turns by the broken toilet. Yes, I took this photo as proof that I am not kidding. My BIL missed his turn home because he couldn't see the toilet in the dark. See? They can't clean it up or my BIL couldn't find his way home!


Politics are alive and well everywhere --- even in the country. We are driving along on roads that look like this...

And even sometimes we were driving on roads that looked like this...

But then all of a sudden for a .7 mile stretch of road we were driving on THIS...

Right in front of the County Supervisor's House!!! Who said politics isn't alive and well EVERYWHERE!!!
Because after the .7 miles it looked like this...
Gotta love it!     Tax dollars at work.

Honey you could have written this about Southeastern Kentucky too! Right down to the paved road in front of the county supervisor's house. I won't tell you about the big new highway that was built here to go straight to our local state senator's home or how much money he made for the road cutting through nearby property he also owned. Yes, it's like this everywhere in the south! Sad, that so much more could be accomplished if these weasels weren't lining their own pockets.

I guess that "Stimulus Plan" Obama provided hasn't helped? Heh.
