Default You might live in Idaho.

YOU MIGHT BE FROM IDAHO IF…. (MADE ME LAUGH) #FUNNY
FORGET REDNECKS; THIS IS WHAT JEFF FOXWORTHY HAD TO SAY ABOUT IDAHOANS !

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

2. If you’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Idaho.

3. If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed the wrong number, you live in Idaho.

4. If ‘vacation’ means going anywhere …south of Salt Lake City for the weekend, you live in Idaho.

5. If you measure distance in hours, you live in Idaho.

6. If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Idaho.

7. If you have switched from ‘heat’ to ‘A/C’ and back again in the same day, you live in Idaho.

8. If you install security lights on your house and garage but leave both unlocked, you live in Idaho.

9. If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Idaho.

10. If you design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Idaho.

11. If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph –you’re going 80, and everyone is still passing you, you live in Idaho.

12. If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in Idaho.

13. If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction, you live in Idaho.

14. If you find 10 degrees ‘a little chilly’ you live in Idaho.

15. If you actually understand these jokes and forward them to all your IDAHO friends, you live in Idaho.

Just today I was admiring our road because it is so beautiful. It is pure white and all the pot holes are filled with snow. Much less bumpy than during summer.



The lights are not for security from buglers we are trying to keep the bears and coyotes away!

I am interested in relocating to Idaho, but the winters are a bit intimidating for this California guy.
We think it's really cold when it's 40 degrees.

We break out the shorts and flip flops at 40 Degrees.
Seriously...40 is nice and warm. Especially when the sun is shining.

What will really be strange is that it gets light at 4 am in the summer!!!!
And it gets dark at 4pm in the winter....

The garbage dumps are free and also qualify as a local mall. Folks take things they do not want and put it on a shelf for others to take.

That is Idaho's idea of recycling...

You might live in Idaho if:

You secure your garbage better than your house or your car.

Lol!

I got a kick out of those ...and many of them reminded me of my childhood in Iowa. (How I miss real winters) .

Thank you for blessing me with laughter this morning!

Hey Donna, I just thought of one!

"You know you live in Idaho if you eat potatoe soup more than 3 times a week."

I"ve always heard Idaho is famous for their spuds."

Oh. I have one :

You might be from Idaho if, when you tell people where you're from, they ask, "Oh, what part of Ohio? " lol.


(As a side note, to this day when I tell people I am from Iowa, more often than not, people say, "oh, Idaho! I love potatoes! " To which I reply, "No.... Iowa! Corn.")

You might live in Idaho if you sneeze and off the end of your nose a stalactite forms.
