You might live in Idaho if:
you are at church and the three grandmas in the next pew are comparing notes on the best way to skin a deer.

Democrats are like salmon, they are on the endangered species list.

In March your vehicle is 43% mud.

The elevation exceeds the population.

You leave your keys in the car and the next morning it's still there.

You wave to someone on the freeway because you recognize the truck.

You don't buy all your vegetables at the grocery store.

You've ever driven a car on the freeway at age 14...legally.

You've ever given a snow shovel or an ice scraper as a gift...and not as a joke.

Your car stays filthy because of the dirt roads and you will never own a dark vehicle for this reason

You might live in Idaho if.....

When parked by the side of the road taking pictures, three different vehicles drive up asking if you are in need or if can they help you.

When the car dealers sell trucks and cars based on the exterior color variations of "mud."

If your home mudroom area, with all the coats, hats, scarves, jackets and boots looks like a ski resort entrance..... and that's only when one person lives in the house.

If people you walk past or see at the store and don't even know, smile and say hello.

You might live in Idaho if......

On the same day you wear a tee shirt and shorts and then snow gear.

If you go to church and "packin' a pew" doesn't mean, how many people can fit in the seating..... but rather how many are carrying concealed.

If while stuck on the side of the road in the snow, at least three drivers stop to help you and whip out their own snow shovels to dig and pull your vehicle out of the snow.

If you while in a Mc Donald's restaurant at the tables around you men and women are talking about their range shooting and what caliber they are using.

I do live in Idaho.

All of the quips are true!

The other day, I was talking to our daughter in Phoenix and told her that the temperature was 40 degrees and i was in a t-shirt and shorts!

One other thing, the folks at amazon.com know us VERY well!

You might live in Idaho if your favorite hamburger joint is at the local gas station!
