You know you're a country girl

  You know you’re a country girl when...

... you get excited about a barn addition and a shed for your horse trailer;

...you can’t wait to use your new, battery-powered chain saw; 

...you’d rather be mucking stalls than cleaning house;

...next to your horse, your tractor is your favorite ride;

...painting the town means helping your neighbors refinish their barns;

...you get your news at the Piggly Wiggly;

...you can’t leave Dollar General without spending $50;

...your Bach and Tchaikovsky are Haggard and Husky;

...you don’t worry about shaving your legs because you’re always wearing jeans;

...there’s nothing unusual about seeing a horse and goat on your retaining wall;

...you complain about traffic when three cars pass the post office before you can get out of the parking lot.


  1. Hi Elaine....There's a local tale around Altoona, Pa., which gets retold every now and then. The city has a rich railroad history and in days past, the trains used to run under pedestrian bridges. If a city girl was crossing the bridge when the train passed underneath while blowing steam and creating wind, she reportedly hung onto her hat. But if a country girl was on the bridge when the train passed, she held onto her skirt.
