You're not a redneck? I'm shocked!

Snake, typically people assume people who follow NASCAR are rednecks.

We have a lot in common, WW. Except I don't understand NASCAR and I'm a redneck. J/K.

I have an Aunt B. And she used to be the best cook ever.

Lauri, I was forced to learn NASCAR as my customer was into it. Those "NASCAR - how bad have you got it?" commercials came out just as I got addicted. I actually escorted my customer to two races -- let me tell you -- it was a RUSH when those engines started up and raced by. I thought I was going to be sick from the excitement. And I'm scared of being poisoned by gasoline. LOL. Aunt Bee on Mayberry is just a sweetie.

Very interesting! I miss my grandmother so much (still living, just far away and unable to travel).

If you are willing to post about it, I'd be interested to hear more about your phobias.

Mother and Yankee, didn't we have a blessing to have great grandmothers? Monica, high 5 on the Brad/Tom ewwww club! Sam, the nut thing does "suck" -- so many things have nuts/nut oil. I tried to give cussing up for lent. &^&#%@ it didn't work.
