Jeff Foxworthy on Upstate New York .

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live in Upstate New York.

If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights a ye ar because Saranac Lake is the coldest spot in the nation, and Syracuse gets more snow than any other major city in the US , you might live in Upstate NY.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from October through May, you might live in Upstate New York .

If you get 131 inches of snow in a week and you comment that 'winter's finally here,' you might live near Oswego in Upstate New York.

If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year, you might live, bundled up, in Upstate New York..

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance, and they don't work there, you might live in Upstate NY.

If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead, you might live in Upstate New York.

If you have worn shorts and a parka on the same day, you might live in Upstate New York.

If you have had a lengthy phone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you might live in Upstate New York.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TRUE UPSTATE NEW
YORKER WHEN:

"Vacation" means going south past20Syracuse for the weekend.

You measure distance in hours.

You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.

You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.

You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.

You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend/wife knows how to use them.

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction

Y ou can identify a southern or eastern accent.

Down South to you means Corning .

Your neighbor throws a party to celebrate his new shed.

You go out for a fish fry every Friday.

Your 4th of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.

You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.

You find 10 degrees "a little chilly." And 55 is shorts weather.

You actually understand these jokes, and you forward them to all your Upstate New York friends and to those who used to live here and left(chickens).

For all of us who are---"seniors"---fo r all of you who know "seniors"---and for all of you who will be "seniors". It pays to be able to laugh about it when you are!

Speaking of Senior Moments: WHERE Is My SUNDAY Paper?

The irate customer calling the newspaper office loudly demanded, wanting to know where her Sunday edition was.

"Ma'am," said the newspaper employee, "today is Saturday. The Sunday paper is not delivered until tomorrow, on Sunday."

There was quite a long pause on the other end of the phone, followed by a ray of recognition.... as she was hanging up, she murmured, "Well hell, that probably explains why no one was at church today either!"

Hi Krinkle, so glad to see you back. and you too Grimm and Red Clover. Maybe someone can start a new thread. It's been so boring. Been after Christmas shopping today though and got some great bargains. Can't wait till a few more days and the sales are even better. Great time to get all the wrapping paper and decorations for next year. Take care all and stay warm. Button down the hatches, the power is back on here, but the wind is terrible. Almost blew the house over.. And almost blew me over at Walmart..lol..Have a great night all.

Thought I'd try and bring some fun back to this thread. I got a cute story about my four year old grandaughter and her dog. I was on the computer and my grandaughter told me the dog, Harley, a pug, got on my desk and took my good scissors and cut my aloe vera plant into little pieces. I said, how did he do that? She said he went over and got the sharp scissors and cut the ends all up. I think she cut about four or five really large stems off it about half way down. All the pieces were about one inch and very consistent. I don't know who is smarter now, the grandaughter or her dog. But I told her that the dog has to go to a new home if he uses grandma's scissors again. This is the same one who told her mom swiper, the fox from Dora, came to our house and dumped the yucky juice (vinegar) which is for potty mouth. but he helped her clean it all up on Thursday a few months back. Now swiper is not allowed at our house either.

Yes it works, my daughter does not use soap, but tried vinegar on her finger and put it in my grandaughters mouth. She hates the taste of it, so she knows if she uses a bad word she gets what she calls is yucky juice. So she had Swiper dump it! But surprise, we had another bottle of it...lol

Well, we have two other dogs and a cat. One of them will be blamed next. But I told her last night that if she cut anything with the scissors she was going to have to go to a new home with her dog Harley. She didn't know what to say...lol... They have such imaginations at that age. We never know what she will come up with next.
