The redneck way of life

This was taken on Easter Sunday.

It's a picture of my youngest brother .... stapling a torn seam in his pants.

He's 21 and did this right in front of our mother. Mother wanted the picture taken to show a slice of the 'redneck' way of life...but I'm not sure if it is. I think my brother is just odd. I mean, wouldn't it make more sense to just give the jeans up...or give them to Mom to see if she can't mend them? Noooo....let's staple it.

Goofball. :)

Bob fans: go here!

That staple won't stay on too long. Besides there are some that rip holes in their jeans as it's the style!

Did ya mention to him that the same thing "girls" do at the office when a hem comes out of their dress. hahaha

I know you won't mind me asking but could you send out a prayer request for a child. I came across it just a few minutes ago & I must ask those of my bloger buddies to sing in.
Thanks & bless yall

I'll be sure to tell him that, both things.

Paige, deepest prayers for that child. You never have to ask...just give me your prayer requests... :)

Too funny...hope it won't ruin the washing machine...that is if he doesn't just let the dog lick them clean. Har har har.

Is he also a fellow Pennsytuckian?


Classic move...however very innovative and thus showing intelligence after far as this on and off again friendship goes...this has to be emotionally exhausting you.

Ciera said...

MC - he just might

Daydreamer - it is. For her too, but then she's had then entire church blackballing her [for no good reason] so I can understand some of her actions. Guess who they're ignoring now that she's gone??? me.

And all I've done is refuse to give up on a friendship because I know that is what Jesus would do for me.

Instead of staples I use iron-on patches but I do them from the inside so they don't show. Occasionally, if it's in an area I can get to, I'll use my sewing machine to do it.

BTW, I don't think your brother was strange to do that--just pragmatic. He wanted the jeans and a stapler was handy.
