I thought the Colorado Humor was to the point, especially the Pony Tail. That was really funny and true. I have been noticing all these bald headed "Want-A-Bes" Baloney Ponies.

I don't have much to add to this post, but it was so hilarious I thought I'd bump it up in case some newcomers had missed it.

I moved from Pebble Beach to the midwest for school back in the mid-70s. As some of my family was helping me settle in to new house, we'd take turns yelling out to each other when an unfamiliar ad came on TV: "Mom, come quick, it's a tractor ad!" "Oh, my gosh, come see this--it's FERTILIZER!!!!" Now, decades later, I probably have a house key in a drawer somewhere, but haven't seen it for years. I do lock the front door at night if the wind is particularly strong and gusty out of the north so it won't blow open. And leaving keys in car "just in case..." opens up parking opps that might otherwise be unsuitable. I once owned a van my mom took to town for some errands. She sheepishly had to return to town when she came home and realized she'd driven off in the wrong vehicle. A small crowd had gathered to razz her--they'd seen the groceries in my van and knew she'd be right back. I could go on, but the point is the humor in regional differences. I've got to save that original list and a few of the additions. Great post Curmudgeon.

Well, I'm not the author of this but it just so happens I spent three school years in Minnesota. If I'd written this I would not have called a season in MN "construction." I'd have called it "mosquitos."

Compliments of Uncle Sam I also spent some time in Colorado.

Oops! Just realized I gave almost the identical answer to this 11 months ago. I thought I sounded familiar to myself. Senior moments!
