    We've all heard the stories (thanks to Jeff Foxworthy) of a guy (redneck) finding a car in his front yard after he mowed his gras...... Well, let's hear it, what do all of you rednecks have in your front yard?

    Me: I have a cast net that has been laying next to my front gate for months. Why, I have no idea. I walk past it every day, my 3 kids walk past it and my wife walk past it. I think there is also the same cooler laying there since May!

    I'd take a pic but right now they are under a 4 foot snow bank. :confused2:

    Dang this is gonna leave a mark. Believe it or not i just picked up an ole cast net last week i had tossed beside the flower bed. Then theres the ole white tub i fish from in one drive way and across the yard sits a bass boat in the other drive way. Good thing my front yard is fenced off and is also a driveway:eek:oooh: Of course around my storage shed you'll find all kinds of stuff. Coolers, weights, noodles, and various other junk.

    Well I live 800 feet off of the road, back of a woods, so no one can see my junk. LOL Down by my shop, I have at least 300 empty propane bottles, waiting for warm weather so I can get my crusher going and get rid of them. Several air conditioners and other assorted scrap. lol looking out the front window I see several bird feeders, my Bolens lawn tractor with trailer, my truck, boys spinning metal rifle target. Dog house , picnic table, table saw by the wood shed.

    I don't feel real bad as the guy that bought the 10 acres next to my place has me beat. I can see several dump trucks and a 35' cabin crusier on a trailer, his yellow Dodge pick up just from my computer window. lol When summer comes his junk is hid, can't see threw the woods. lol

    I'm starting to feel like a REDNECK and I always thought I was a Hoosier. lol

    I'm an upwardly mobile redneck so my stuff is in the backyard. Well, there is a boat next to the street. No, it's not for sale I just parked it there because there's no room anywhere else.

    In my backyard I have an 18 foot starcraft with a busted transom thanks to the 150 merc sitting on it. Several old two line johnnyrude tanks, seven boat motors in various states of repair, 75 cinder blocks, an unknown amout of roofing rubber (never know when you'll need some), a twelve foot stainless table for cleaning fish, an unknown amount of aluminum cans and other sellable scrap, a huge metal bin that I got for who knows what, 800-900 cinder squares that I scraped from somewhere to build a patio three years ago, a headache rack for a pickup, old glass panels that I was going to build a greenhouse with several years ago, a potty chair I haven't thrown away yet but is still nice to sit on while watching the sunset, A pallet, a wheelbarrow with a broken tub, a weedeater I haven't used in five years that's locked up tight but still looks new, lord knows how many plastic buckets that have frozen and broken, tomato cages that are all rusted together but still usable, trailer wheels and tires that the garbage men won't pick up, a trash can with no bottom that the garbage men also won't take, used house carpet for a boat that I never put in, sash weights that I'll never use but were too cool to pass up, a rake with a broken handle but the head is still good, 5/8 inch plastic panels that i was going to make a soap mold with, two life preservers that are so old the harnesses have rotted off but the foam is still good so I was going to shove it in a cavilty on my boat for extra floatation, parts of some old cabinets I was going to cut down and build a work bench from, but now they're warped all to heck, styrofoam boxes like you get frozen meat from that were also too cool to throw away, a 600 foot spool of 21 connector phone line on a 3 foot wood reel, a driveshaft from a '71 Ford truck, various legnths of that crapy yellow poly rope and to top it all off, a complete four wheel drive chassis for an old Ford truck.

    Yeah baby, top that.....

    Well I live in a neighborhood so I have to be a little modist. I just push it in the woods:big_smile:. Got a work truck and trailer, another trailer with 3 flats. Few tires neatly tucked under some leaves. Two 5 gallon buckets used for oil changes. A propane lantern under the willow for what I couldn't tell you. Been there a few years. Couple of latters under the front porch with assorted tools, neatly hidden by the shrubs:wink:, and a forever complainig wife telling me to clean it all up. The worse stuffs out back:smile2:

    Thanks Neighbors!
    I feel so much better about my front yard now! My two boats and a battery don't hardly count.

    Just don't look in the back yard!:wink:

    Instead of cleaning it up, I fenced in the back yard mess with privacy panels and floored it with old carpet to defeat the weeds.:big_smile:

    Well I don't have a drive way, but my truck does look good in the front yard. Along with the make shift pond I also have and the coolers and bag chairs that are sittin there waiting for the weather to get better.
