My Comments in Red

Highlight the stupid thing, I don't know why it's being dumb.

You Know You're From South Dakota When...

During a storm you check the cattle before you check the kids. The kids have more sense. (Hopefully.)

The local gas station sells live bait. Where else are you planning on getting it?

You don't buy all your vegetables at the grocery store. Only in the winter, and that's if there's not enough frozen from the garden.

You know the code names for everyone on the CB.

You'll skip your cousin's funeral for the first day of deer season. Can't say I've done that.

You don't clean up the dog's mess because it's just fertilizer. Nope.

It takes 30 seconds to reach your destination and it's clear across town. Maybe a minute.

You can tell the smell of a skunk and the smell of a feed lot apart. They smell WAY different. Not even close!

You consider a building a mall if it's bigger than the local Wal-Mart. Pretty much.

The first, and perhaps only celebrity you've ever met is Captain 11. I wanted to meet him so bad. Just never got the chance. Sad day.

Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting on I-90 for the "follow me" car to come back during road construction. Or when the train comes. Once we were backed up two blocks!

"Vacation" means stopping off at Wall Drug for Friday night dinner and a drive through the Badlands early Saturday morning, with the rest of the weekend driving through the Black Hills before heading home for Sunday night chores. Sounds like a good time to me!

Your school classes were canceled because of cold. And cold means 10 below zero. Psht! Try 25 below.

You know not only 'what' but 'where' Sturgis is. And, your first big trip in life was to see Mt. Rushmore and visit the Flintstone's Bedrock City in Custer. Strugis yes, the rest no.

A big shopping trip is going to Sioux Falls - Empire Mall. Minneapolis, if you are really living. Oh yea! The Empire Mall has everything anyone could ever want. Minneapolis, that's just nuts.

You know all 4 seasons: Almost winter, winter, HOT HOT HOT, and winter again. What happened to road construction season?

There is a McDonald's in every town with a population of 1,000 or more. Over 1,000, there is a McDonald's on each end of town. I lived in a town of 2,000 and no McDonald's. We did have an A & W, though. (They make more than root beer floats!!)

Eight-foot tall snow piles divide the lane down the middle of Main Street from November through March. Give or take.

Pop is a Coke and soda involves ice cream and root beer. This one is wack. Everyone calls it pop. (Of course except for me, the rebel who says soda!)

You plug your car in at night, but it's not to charge the batteries. Why would you plug in your car to charge the batteries? I'm confused.

You could always count on the local truck stop or The Happy

Chef for the best breakfast in town. Perkins, Happy Chef, same diff.

Aside from pheasants, mosquitos are the state bird. I blame MN!

Menards on any weekend is busier than the toy stores at Christmas. Of course! Kids have fun at Menards, too!

Praire dogs outnumber people 10 to 1 So very true.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from South Dakota. Well, most/none of you are from So Dak. But I think they're funny.
