You Might be a Red Neck if........

You move broken down old four wheelers around the yard with a tractor, so you don't have to weed eat around them.

That there four wheeler has been sitting in the same spot in the yard since I moved here. It has been weedeated (is that even a word, weed eated?)around many many times and even sprayed around with some Round Up. That there four wheeler is owned by my brother in law who doesn't even live here. We can't take it to his house because his wife will have a fit and we can't get rid of it because he will have a fit. Because you all know that one day he is going to fix it!! I think it's far beyond fixing. The junk that sits around the yard is called "treasure". I call it that because it can't be rid of. The men here will cry if it's gone, because one day they might need it. So, until that day, it will sit in the yard.

So, until the day when my brother in law decides that this "treasure" needs to be dumped, in my side yard it will sit. Most likely until death do us part. Why do people who live in the country have to have "treasure" piles? Maybe not every one who lives in the country does, but the men here sure do!

Sam has many treasure piles. They drive me iNsAnE. That's why I burned his buckets.

Maybe you should throw a fit! Sounds like you guys are pretty nice to me. :)

Maybe they'll read this post and volunteer to do something about it. (I'm dreaming for you.)

Maybe during the next storm you should go out and hide it somewhere and claim it got blown away. Then next time they aren't home, pit it in the van and take it to the dump!!

How funny we have a boat in our yard that I have been begging him to sell,since he sold his truck two years ago and has never used the boat since!

HaHa, You are just too too nice. I would have a fit!!

I so feel your pain. As you know, I have to deal with piles of treasure myself. Right now, I can barely walk through my garage to get in the house. So embarrasing. Well to me anyway, obiviously not to him.

Ahh, my sister has a couple of those. Well, at least they aren't in the yard, but they aren't running and they don't ride them anymore. What a waste. I told her to sell them and put the money towards hay or other horsey stuff!
She also has a tractor with a flat tire sitting there....a tractor she could use to drag her arena. Or move from the covered area it's sitting under and store hay there.
Maybe I need to take matters into my own hands, hee!

HA HA HA! Love it! I like Lucy too from your last post! But I think your right about the 'breed issue'. Very funny!

If she's learning barrels you need to start her slow anyway! So now you two can learn together! How exciting! Then you can bring her out here and I can have somebody to barrel race with again!

Oh boy-the men in my family NEVER get rid of ANYTHING! Cause, you just never know when you might need it again. Ugh! I started hauling stuff to the recycler this spring, but am not going to mess with it again until fall. The rattlesnakes like to hang out in all of the junk.
I think you are being too nice about it too. It's one thing if you have a place to put it sort of out of the way/sight-but in the yard? I DON'T THINK SO!

Hey-I like Lucy too. That's funny about the family not getting it about the breed name. You are probably right about others wondering WTH? when they even put it in the ad wrong.

Seeing big cowpoke sitting on the four wheeler reminded me of a broken down 'treasure' my grandparents had. It was an old rusted riding lawn mower and I traveled many a mile sitting upon it's seat. In my head of course.

Good luck and at least perhaps your kids might find some use for them.

ROTFL!! Man it is something about junk piles that they like! Mines favorite words-never know when I might use it or need it!!! Finally convinced him to move the riding lawn mower to the pasture, it has been in the same spot in the yard for at least 6 months!! BTW-me moved it with the tractor as well! LOL!
We also have a huge burn pile, that he refuses to burn! UGH!
Good luck to ya!!!

Donate it to the Boy Scouts, then claim it was stolen. Bat eyelashes a lot!
