Saturday encore ~ You know you live in the middle of nowhere when...

A new day, a new year, a new decade...so many things to look forward to...including the arrival of the 2010 phone book! What better time to look back at this post from 2009.

Jeff Foxworthy built an entire franchise around "You know you might be a redneck when..."

Some of those redneck things do apply to me, but I've got a little different twist on the concept.

"You know you live in the middle of nowhere when..."

...when your telephone book is two pages long.



...when your name is the only listing under the Cs.


...when long-distance charges apply to call any number that's not in your phone book.


Life in the middle of nowhere – I wouldn't have it any other way.

  1. I enjoyed that before and still got a laugh out of it this morning! Although my phone book is small, it's not that small, AND we have Yellow Pages too! Long distance applies to just about any call ... thank goodness for cell phones!

    I'm with you Carson ... I sure wouldn't have it any other way!

  2. You're a celebrity in more ways than just one.
    I love the picture of Deets on the "Hot Tin Roof"

    Best always, Sandra

  4. But I must know, Do you still get phone calls from telemarketers?

  5. I don't, Kathy, but that's probably because I listed my number with the 'do not call' registry. I did find a religious pamphlet stuck on my gate once - how they ever found me, Lord only knows.

  6. Lol! Living at the end of the world - regardless of which corner - has more perks than minuses. Happy 2010 to everyone at the MSN ranch from the humans and critters of Ishtar's Ark!

  12. That's hilarious.

    I don't even use the phone book anymore. I use the internet. It bothers me quite a bit to receive the thick phone book regularly - not one, but two - the white pages & yellow pages. I just see a bunch of dead trees.

  14. Good Lord! I thought you were joking at first, but no, it really is 2 pages! Gotta love it though, nothing better than wide open spaces filled with wildlife and green (or brown, I guess, in your case!)
