summertime meant fresh frog legs
you had to sneak past the bull in the pasture to get to the creek in the back to go skinny dipping

Okay, I have a few

Do you remember keeping lightin' bugs in a jar?

Did any of you ever tear 'em in half and use their butts for glow in the dark face paint?

Did you ever climb the tree in your back yard and have to yell for a neighbor to come and help you down? hehe I did this so often when I was 5 or 6 that my parents had to tell me to stop climbin' trees!

Do you remember makin' your big wheel skid and make that cool skidding sound with the pull break?

Did anyone ever play with rolly pollys along side of your matchbox cars?
I remember when a bottle of coke came out chest type vending machine

When you could walk into an Ice Cream store(Highs) and get a double dipper for 35 cents

When taking shotguns to school so we could dove hunt in the afternoon was never thought of as a threat

Balsa wood airplanes with a rubber band to wind the prop up

When everyones dog looked like some kind of hound

Real Christmas trees and bulbs the size of a Jalapeno pepper

Ordering from a Sears outlet store

Home made lemonade in a metal pitcher

Riding in the bed of a pickup on a nice day

Jumping trains to get across town

I just found this post. It's great:rofl:

You are country if you move 5 times and never get out the same yard.

You are country if your swimming hole is the bayou in your front yard.:multi:

you are country if you can total your Dad's truck in your back yard.:eek:

you are country if you stir the pot on Sunday and there are chicken feet in it.

You are country if you have 10 sheds and nowhere to put stuff.

You are country if everyone in your neighbor hood has there own boat launch.

mmight be country

Here's one I heard but not sure where from:

"You might be country if you kick your boots off before you go outside"

Here's one from me:

You may be country if you cringe when ever they tear down a patch of woods for a new parking lot. Or they fill in the ole muddin' hole with a bowling alley.

Industry, needs to back off some.

You know the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption, and that you don't "have" them, you "pitch" them.

If someone says he'll "be back directly". you know exactly how long it will be before he's back.

You know "gimme some sugar" is not a request for the white, grannular sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl on the middle of the table.

You know instinctively that the best way to comfort a neighbor who's got trouble is to give a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, you know to add a large bananna puddin.

You know the difference between a right near and a right fer place.

You make friends while standing in lines.

You have caught yourself lookin.

You don't scream obscenities at a little old lady who drove too slowlly on the freeway. You just say "Bless her heart" and go your own way.:bthumb:
