This is so funny and is all true:

This is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about

*If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don’t work there, you live in Oregon.

Ha ha--he's so funny. I've only ever driven through Oregon, sadly, but that sounds about right from what I've heard from acquaintances.

Deb Gould said...

Some of these apply equally to Maine, you know! I recognize most of them as true statements -- it's this kind of grinning that gets me through a Maine (Oregon?) winter!

Hart Johnson said...

Those weather ones fit Michigan, too, but Oregon definitely has more considerate and ecclectic people than most places. Thanks for the laugh!

The ones related to driving are a bit intimidating, but the people sound lovely! I'd like to visit Oregon one of these days. =)

PS -- Hello again, Kathy! It has been a long time since I last visited, but I thought about you out of the blue today and thought I'd say hi! =)

Very funny and interesting. It seems to be a beautiful and friendly state to live, for me perhaps a tad to cold and rainy.
