Are YOU a New Englander?

Forget Rednecks .......here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about NewEnglanders....If your local Dairy Queen is closed from October through April, you live in New England. If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in New England. If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in New England. If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in New England If 'Vacation' means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend, you live in New England. If you measure distance in hours, you live in New England. If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in New England. If you have switched from 'heat ' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in New England. If you can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in New England. If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you live in New England. If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in New England. If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in New England. If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 70 and everybody is passing you, you live in New England. If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in New England. If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in New England. If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in New England. If you find 20 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in New England. If there's a Dunkin Donuts on every corner, you live in New England.

I'm a New Englander, that's for sure.
