I claim with pride to be a bit of a Redneck...and so are my sons....all with pride....
I remember a woman I knew whose daughter went to HS with my son. Her daughter was a bit of a snob back then and referred to my son as a redneck......all I know is, who was the first kid they sought when they could not get their cars started in the parking lot or who stopped to help them pull their cars out of ditch on that snowy first day.....my redneck son....now he is a first Lt. in the USMC....and we are proud of our redneck
To me, “Red Neck” means you spend your day in the sun, not worried about sunscreen. Too busy working on your business, not too prideful to notice the sunburn.
It means you wear a collar. This is like the term “Farmer’s tans”, where your arms have a definate sleeve line. I would rather be a Redneck than a wimpy model-type or metrosexual, anyday.
And you should be! Kudos to you and yours.
Bravo for you AND your son!!! Sounds like the Marines got the BEST of THAT deal!!!
We're proud of him, too!!!
