Jeff Foxworthy!~

Taken on one of my many hikes

As most of you know I live in the Pacific North West. It is God's country, hand painted beauty that is breathe taking. If you have never been here it is worth the vacation trip to come and visit. Make sure to bring warm clothes and a camera. 
Today on my Face Book page a friend of mine posted this. I just loved it. It so describes the Pacific North West perfectly. And if you know me you'd laugh your head off. I love hot hot weather. Hate the darn cold wet rainy stormy weather.
 I am from the Pacific North West; grew up here off and on all my life. Born in Washington state. Live in Oregon. But stayed in beautiful sunny California after graduation for many many years most of my adult. Then moved back here. Still love it here but want the hot hot weather. Darn I cannot figure a way to have both. Working on that one.
Maybe becoming a snow bunny. In Winter head to hot sunny places come back home here in the mid Summer to Mid October. I'm sure there is a seasonal plan for me.
But loved this so much I just has to share it.
Hope you like it.
 You might be from the Pacific Northwest if: You know the state flower (Mildew) You feel guilty throwing aluminum cans or paper in the trash. Use the statement "sun break" and know what it means. You know more than 10 ways to order coffee. You know more people who own boats than air conditioners. You feel overdressed wearing a suit to a nice restaurant. You stand on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for the "Walk" Signal. You consider that if it has no snow or has not recently erupted, it is no a real mountain. You can taste the difference between Starbucks, Seattle's Best, and Tully's. You know the difference between Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye salmon. You know how to pronounce Sequim, Puyallup, Issaquah, Oregon, Yakima and Willamette. You consider swimming an indoor sport. You can tell the difference between Japanese, Chinese and Thai food. In winter, you go to work in the dark and come home in the dark �while only working eight-hour days. You never go camping without waterproof matches and a poncho. You are not fazed by "Today's forecast: showers followed by rain," and "Tomorrow's forecast: rain followed by showers." You cannot wait for a day with "showers and sun breaks." You have no concept of humidity without precipitation. You know that Boring is a town in Oregon and not just a state of mind. You can point to at least two volcanoes, even if you cannot see through the cloud cover. You notice, "The mountain is out" when it is a pretty day and you can actually see it. You put on your shorts when the temperature gets above 50, but still wear your hiking boots and parka. You switch to your sandals when it gets about 60, but keep the socks on. You have actually used your mountain bike on a mountain. You think people who use umbrellas are either wimps or tourists. You knew immediately that the view out of Frasier's window was fake. You buy new sunglasses every year, because you cannot find the old ones after such a long time. You measure distance in hours. You often switch from "heat" to "a/c" in the same day. You use a down comforter in the summer. You carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit under a raincoat. You know all the important seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer), Deer & Elk season (Fall). You actually understood these jokes and will probably forward them!
Do like Jeff Foxworthy and His "You might Be A Redneck If..." jokes?

Love all those points raised by Jeff Foxworthy. Very funny! It's a bit like that in England and we always have to be prepared! Beautiful photo and you're right, you live in a gorgeous place. Blessed indeed.
