Yep most of those apply here to except those really cold temps.
Who are the Packers? Do the work for the moving company?
Well we dont have a lot of gravel roads here in the Ozarks, they are flint rock and no it was not hauled it.
Women know what a jack is and how to change a flat tire.
Changes come slow to many places in Arkansas, even just yesterday I was pranked a bit. They fellows told my son and I to go straight and they went left, well a mile down the hill later and many curve we realized they had went the other way. BUt like I said it had been 32 years since I was there and when we arrived at where the swinging bridge had been in 1965, we ate lunch and turned around. Funny how we arrived back at the truck just when they did. Something about they did not know my shortcut.
I thought I was the only Iowan this way. Thanks for the laugh!
