Speaking of Canadian Hick Heritage

Hope my brother won't mind me sharing his picture with you but Coco's comment about our Canadian hick heritage I had to share. *snicker*

He does a lot of ice fishing while he's off work in the wintertime. He seemed very happy to open this present. I wish I had thought of it.

After Christmas dinner we went to visit the true hicks/rednecks when we went to visit Dave's brothers. I really should have taken pictures because mere words are not enough to adequately describe them. We weren't there for long, thankfully, but at least we made our one a year appearance. It's not that I don't like them, I do, I just don't have anything in common with them. My one SIL and I get along well. We both wonder what kind of drugs we were on in our teens that we ended up marrying into this family.

I think I've dated him or at least flirted with him when I was drunk.

What is so weird about this man? He looks perfectly normal to me. I see his like many times a day. He is prepared for the weather is all. Those caps are freakin' warm!

If you need ideas for next Christmas, lights, one of my friends in MN made her hubbie a rabbit-fur lined jock strap to wear when he was jogging in the cold. He really liked it & always wore it on coldcold days. (It filled out his camel toe area into a nice hump too.) I'm thinking how nice your brother would look in his fur-lined winter cap if he had a fur-lined winter jock strap too.

LMAO @ the thought of my brother jogging, for one thing, and doing it while wearing a fur-lined jock strap for another. Too effing funny!

Nutzy? You'll never believe what my brother's name is. Uh huh, Daryl. And my sister? Cheryl. *grin* Two of my BILs make Darryl and Darryl look quite normal.

Bob, it was truely priceless. I'll forever think of this Christmas as the "gay cowboy" Christmas.

Carey, when you come to visit I'll make sure to take you to visit the in-laws. I promise it will be an experience you won't soon forget. No matter how hard you try. *giggle*

You're right Swami. Daryl's hat is a very normal sight in the land of snow.

You know, like Swami, I see these hats every day. Also big fur coats. But the expression is priceless.

And Swami nearly made me pee myself by saying "It filled out his camel toe area into a nice hump too."

Seriously, though, why did you tell your dad? You could have just gone with him and tripled the laughs.

You have no idea how hard you folks have made me laugh! Nutzboy is looking at me funny.

"Hi, I'm Lightsy. This is my brother Daryl and my other brother... ummm sister Cheryl."

Oh Coco, are you trying to tell me camels have humps?

LOL! Yes, the look on his face really did make the picture, didn't it?

And I want to think about my brother and camel toe being used in the same sentence about as much as my Dad wants to think about gay cowboys.

As far not telling him? I don't really want to be written out of the will. *grin*

I forgot to tell you guys, but one Hallowe'en, my mom went as Larry, Darryl, and Darryl.

I wasn't very old at the time, but it marked me for life.
