You might be a redneck if...

My Home Depot lawnmower has a serious design flaw... There's this little spring, that is apparently very important that's exposed up front and as I mow around bushes, it keeps getting snagged/stretched/pulled off and causing the mower to either work at half power or not at all. So... I took a page from NASCAR and whipped out the duct tape! I remember a Dale Earnhardt wreck where they duct taped what was left of the car together and he finished the race. Well guess what, I finished mowing my lawn too:@)
Sometimes life ain't pretty, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Have a happy day:@)

    Best,

  11. I have to tell you MY story about duct tape....when our twin grandgirls were in diapers, one of them hated wearing diapers...she would pull and tug and stretch them until they fell off her...many times, I would drive up to their house and see her naked as a jaybird, playing on the swing set...One day, I noticed, from a distance, that they were outside playing and the naked one seemed to be wearing something...a diaper??? Wow...well, her daddy had DUCT TAPED the diaper so that there was no way she could get out of it....hahhhaa....we still kid her about her Duct Tape Diapers.

  14. Lynn, I don't know what we would do without duct tape! Did you know it comes in all kinds of patterns now? You might even find one with little piggies on it. Home Depot needs to rethink this design! Linda
