It was either laugh or cry.......we laughed

Sooooooo.......the hubby and I were researching the area that we'll be moving to yesterday evening and ended up huddled together in a laughing heap. No matter what site we looked at for the local area there was no getting around the fact that it definitely had a, uh, rural focus. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the country and even here am used to regularly seeing the odd tractor here and there riding down the road, but this was just too funny. Every single page had the local fishing report very prominently displayed and under the list of local events there was the beginning of huntin' season in big, bold lettering. My personal favorite was the ATV Jamboree.

Yep. Nothin' but helpless laughter at this point. Especially when I slapped hubby on the arm and wailed, "You are movin' us to the boonies!!" (Sorry, Cuz.)

And then to top it off, I asked where the closest Wal-Mart is (because I don't know the names of grocery chains over there). Hubby snorted and showed me that the closest major shopping area is at least 100 miles away. I think Hubs was laughing more than I was at that point.....

Oh yeah baby! Serves you right! Now you are going to be a hick like me! You've got to email me the name of this place so I can research it for you and educate you two on the "boonie etiquette." Haaaa! That's funny, because their ain't no etiquette in the boonies! :-)

I thought that I lived in the boonies ! I am in hick town USA and our Wal Mart is about twenty minutes away. Where in the world are you moving ? Do you need a time machine to get there ? LOL!!

j's mommy~ I refuse to turn into a hick!! Down-home country folk are fine with me....hoping to see more of those than the narrow-minded redneck type!

BTW~ What do you mean serves me right? What have I ever done, huh?

lisa ann~ Thanks for stoppin' by, Shug! I've done the twenty minute away thing before and that was do-able. People keep telling us that it isn't as isolated as we think, but I'm not convinced. We'll find out for sure in a couple months or so! At least we got a laugh out of something....
