Ode' to Idaho

I found this while blog-surfing. I've heard it before but I was excited to have the little reminder of home. Here's the blog I copied it from.

For those of you who've lived in Idaho, or know someone who does...
FORGET REDNECKS;THIS IS WHAT JEFF FOXWORTHY HAD TO SAY ABOUT IDAHOANS !

  • If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Idaho .
  • If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Idaho .
  • If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed the wrong number, you live in Idaho .
