Have You Ever Lived In Alaska?

Sunday, March 22, 2009

I can not remember not hearing blond jokes (I was a blond...still am a little) or redneck jokes...living in/close to W.V. you got lots of them. But this email that I just got took the cake (they are trying to help me loose weight also I guess)

Forget Rednecks jokes-how about these!

~If you refer to the contiguous 48 states as the lower 48, you may live in Alaska.

~If you say "I get to go outside" and what that means is you get to leave Alaska, you do live in Alaska.

~If the 2x4 you just purchased cost as much as the Skil saw you will use to cut it, you may live in Alaska.

~If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Alaska .

~If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Alaska .

~If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a
wrong number, you may live in Alaska .(this just happened to me yesterday hee hee

~If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Alaska . (nearest city 8 hours away!)

~If you know several people who have hit a moose - more than once, you may
live in Alaska .

~If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again,
you may live in Alaska

~If you can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard
without flinching, you may live in Alaska .

~If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both
unlocked, you may live in Alaska .

~If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you
may live in Alaska .

~If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you may
live in Alaska .

~If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 70 and everybody
is passing you, you may live in Alaska .

~If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with
snow, you may live in Alaska .( first time I came up here was in Nov.-Road was very smooth!)

~If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road
construction, you may live in Alaska .(To us it is Winter, Breakup and Short Summer)

~If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you may live in
Alaska .

~If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you may live in Alaska .

If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to your Alaskan
friends & others, you definitely live in Alaska . (Or you might know someone that does live in Alaska, and you can't believe it!)

    These are sooooooooooo true!! I moved to Alaska in 1976 right after my sis and her hubby moved up there to work on the pipeline! My ex hubby who wanted to go only lasted 6 months. We moved up in Dec of 76 and yes the roads were iced over and nice especially in Canada. At the end of May we drove the ALCAN home. Talk about potholes and mud....OMG....I have never encountered any other place like it.

    I went back to visit my sis (they stayed and it is home to them and their children and grandchildren), for Christmas one year. Day two, I was pulling my coat off and leaving it in the car when we went shopping. I told my sis it was too hot to wear. A heat wave had come to town. It was 17 degrees when I arrived and 20 on the day I put the coat up LOL!!

    I could go on for hours! THanks for bringing up all those wonderful old memories...how NEAT!! I should have stayed!
