  •  That's not a function of deploying... (0+ / 0-)

    Everybody does that in Jeffferson County, New York - home of the northernmost rednecks.

    I worry about people who agree with me. I know why I'm this way but I have to wonder what's wrong with them.

      Yes, well, you got me there.

      Who knew that Nascar and New York would fit together so well? Oh yeah.....if you're from Watertown, then it's you.

      •  No, but my Dad grew up south of there. (0+ / 0-)

        On Route 11, between Mannsville and Sandy Creek, there is, or at least there used to be, a turkey farm.  When my Dad was a boy, in the 1920s, on the site of the turkey farm was an orphangae run by the Ku Klux Klan.

        At any rate it does seem like cruel and unusual punishment when a guy returns from Iraq or Afghanistan to be stuck at Fort Drum.

          We lived there through two winters. That is the worst. -25 degrees during the day, etc. when you didn't grow up around snow.

          My husband I once played Bingo with the locals in Watertown and the lady next to me asked me if in Texas we have shopping malls. I wanted to die. I was thinking, Get Me Out Of Here.

          (I am from Dallas and my husband is from Houston)

          Luckily, we saw all of NY state which is, overall, fantastic. I am visiting friends in Newburgh for Memorial Day.
