Vacation is Over

And as a reminder, my friend Mimi just sent this to me....



Here is what Jeff Foxworthy
has to say about New Englanders...  


If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September thr ough May, you live in New England
  
If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in New England
  
If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in New England . 
  
If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in New England
  
If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend, you live in New England
  
If you measure distance in hours, you live in New England
  
If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in New England
  
If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in New England
  
If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in New England.
  ; 
If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you live in New England
  
If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in New England
  
If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in New England 
  
If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you live in New England. 
  
If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in New England
  
If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in New England
  
If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in New England
  
If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in New England
  
If there's a Dunkin Donuts on every corner, you live in New England

Ain't it the truth.
One more...

If you drive to VT in early April and there is 4 feet of snow on the side of the road, you live in New England.

Oh Jeff has something to say about us all doesn't he...
I thought it was a repeat of Oklahoma till we got to the part of driving 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a ragiung blizzard without flinching, now that would not be Oklahoma. I can assure you of that. Thanks for the humor this morning.

Thank goodness Jeff is finally picking on someone else. We (Rednecks) have had just about enough!!!! Unfortunately, he's usually spot on:(

I love that little peek into the lives of New Englanders. I have such a crush on New England.

Other than the last one about Dunkin donuts, it could be Canada.
Here in Canada we have a Tim Hortons on every corner.

Even my son has commented about the winters in CT being so different from the ones in NJ.

Deb said...

LOL...one thing I can attest to is that there are often Dunkin Donuts on the opposite sides of the street. that, I have witnessed myself...
I love the Jeffster! He is a genuinely funny guy...

TSannie said...

Pretty darn accurate list, actually!

If you find 10 degrees 'a frozen tundra nightmare', you live in Texas!

A Dunkin' Donuts on every corner? I never knew. Yet another reason why I must visit...

Debra said...

Oh my God,
That is ALL so true. LOL I live in Woodbury, CT and totally agree!

I can't imagine driving in the snow. I've tried it once. I needed a valium. I would rather wrestle a gator. The last time that it snowed here, we all went crazy and shut down the entire state. It was sort of like The Shining, but with 1 inch of snow.
