So, why am I famous you ask? I have told myself if my reader’s ever get five deep, then I will be on my way. Well, what do you know…that happened just this morning. Here is the chainlink: I told Missy about my blog, who told Erika, who told Renee, and then an old friend Kristen found me from Renee’s blog this morning….so, I guess that I am not famous. (oh how fast the glory was ripped from my clenched fist) This is only four deep. (Math is not my expertise) And, I guess to be fair, I already knew Kristen and so she may not count. But, it is sure exciting to feel loved!!!
Well, to honor the moment, I thought I would give Renee and Kristen, some Kentucky humor. Kristen said that they were friends in Kentucky. You can tell that Kristen is a Kentucky transplant because she says that we Tennesseeans are more Southern than Kentuckians. I guess she doesn’t know that Kentucky has more of a reputation for being backwards.
So, here is Kentucky humor from my father-in-law. Brought to all of you in honor of my blog almost being famous in the small State of Kentucky! (Hey, I’ll take what I can get)
Pikeville Kentucky Commandments
Some people in Kentucky have trouble with all those “shalls” and “shall
nots” in the Ten commandments. Folks just aren’t used to talking in those
terms. So, some folks in eastern KY got together and translated the “King
James” into ” Pike County ” language…. No joke, read on…
