#Back2Blogging Event- Day 3!

I have reached Day 3 of our blogging challenge!  Whoo Hoo!

If you don't know what I am talking about, I am a member of The SITS Girls and they have a blogging event going on this week.  Each day there is another assignment to do.  This has really helped me to post on a daily basis on this blog.  Today's assignment is to re-upload a post with a title that you are particularly proud of and explain why.  

I don't know if I am particularly proud of the title, but it is funny, actually the entire day was funny to me.  So here it is:

Grandma Must Be a Redneck!

Let me first start off by saying, that I have nothing against Rednecks!  If I knew any I am sure they are wonderful, fun loving people!  I think I am!

If you have read the About Me section, you would already know that we have a lot of animals and that we live in a small rural town in WA.  Everyone has a truck, well almost everyone!  Here is a picture of my Teeny Mini!

My car has been out of commission for a bit so I haven't been getting out much.  The other day I had to pick up some records at my doctor's office.  I didn't know how I was going to get there, since all there was to drive was my husband's big, long truck and I am afraid to drive it.

However, I needed to go, so I started getting ready.  One of our dogs, Pancho, loves riding in that truck.  I guess he could hear my conversations that I had earlier in the day about me not wanting to drive it.

He wouldn't go out back when I was ready to leave, he just sat by the front door.  So I let him outside and instead of his usual, running to the grass to pee, he ran straight to the truck and sat by the door whining!

I got my keys and said, "Okay, you can go with me, but you have to go pee pee first."  He looked at me and ran to the grass and went to the bathroom, all the while whining for me not to leave him! He jumped in the truck and off we went. Here he is!
Pancho ready for another ride!
I had to stop at two different offices.  The car I usually drive is quite small, as you can imagine I am not used to parking something of that size.

When I got to the parking spots there were only compact spots available.  Now I started to sweat.  I was so nervous already, but after several tries I finally got it somewhat straight and parked it. Whew, I did it!  I was feeling pretty good, went in to the offices and got back in my truck.  Thankfully we made it home safely and I was so relieved.

When I opened the door for Pancho to get out, I looked at the seat and this is what I found....

Then I looked down at my clothes and I was covered in white dog hair, among other things, I looked like a powdered donut!  That wasn't the half of it, my shirt was on backwards too!  So I guess Grandma is a Redneck and that Grandma is me!

Items normally found on our lint roller!

You may be wondering why I have a picture of a turquoise washer and dryer on my page.  The #Back2Blogging event was created by The SITS Girls, it is to help us get back into the routine of posting on our blogs.  One of the lucky participants will walk away with this washer and dryer set! How cool is that?!!

So drum roll please... I introduce to you Thelma and Louise, the fabulous washer and dryer set!

  1. Haha! That is a fantastic title! I have a dog to so all our stuff is always hairy, including my clothes!

  2. Hi Jill!

    Thank you! We have 4 labs, but the yellow ones seem to be the culprits, at least the most noticeable!

    Your blog is great and I love the titles you use too. I had never really thought about it much, until after the blogging challenge.

    Thanks for popping in and staying awhile!

  3. Yes, fabulous title and great content to boot! I love the shot of the lint roller -- tee hee! I, too, am the proud owner of a Pancho. And like yours, he's quite the shedder. Size is where our boys differ: My Pancho is a Chipugua (Chihuahua/Pug mix).

    Thank you for participating in the SITS B2B discussion at Blog Frog!


  4. Hey, I am stopping in for the SITS back to blogging event, but I am a fellw Bloggerette Sorority Sister, as well! (and I actually drive an extended cab pickup as my primary vehicle, so I guess that kind of makes me a little bit of redneck, too!)

  5. @Jenn, Thank you so much for your nice comment. Yes, our lint rollers are pretty chunky! Another Panchito, how sweet!! Thank you for sharing such a great post on your blog and BF too. ~Lisa

  6. I will rename a post 5 or 6 times before I finally make a decision...and it almost always has something to do with music. (I have an inner jukebox that never needs quarters!)

  7. Hi Charlene! My long lost Redneck Sistah! Yes, with extended cab will travel! I went to your blog and for some reason got really hungry!! Great recipes, and then on the other one, that Walmart story! So nice of you to stop by and comment too. ~Lisa

  8. Hi Mary!
    I don't know why I never really thought much about the title, but it all makes so much sense.

    How cool that you have a free jukebox! Songs in my head always sound wonderful, then I try to sing along and for some reason it all gets lost in translation!

    Your babies are adorable. So you are a Pediatric RN and I was NICU! We used to have to rotate to Peds and PICU. That was tough for me. Thanks for stopping by. ~Lisa

  9. Cute blog. Love your theme. I could completely relate to not wanting to park a large pick up truck. Your little piece of heaven is beautiful. I have dogs, cats and a snake but I really would like a chunk of property to raise mini horses.
    Signed up as a new follower! Found ya on the MBC.
    Stop by and say hi.

  10. Hilarious title! Great post to pick for the re-post.
