People out having fun (instead of blogging)

In happier news for Davenport, today was a beautiful day for the Mississippi Valley Fair. The number of people that pay $8 to get in and then $3-5 per ride continues to convince me that the QC could support a small amusement park.Also, I'll be continuing my series of summer trips around the midwest with a quick weekend in Sioux Falls, SD this weekend. I also plan to spin through downtown Des Moines and see some of the progress that's been made down there. Hopefully I'll be able to post some things along the way.

Rednecks as far as the eye can see.

A truly picturesque Davenport landscape.

Well captured!

Jean shorts = rednecks? I think not. Maybe cut-offs.

Redneck

Not a hick;may or may not have an education--either its stereotyped way too often. Its an attitude and style. Often an adopted way of life. Care free, cut and dry, roughneck attitude/qualities. Aint afraid to kick someones ass over the smallest things, often give "what are you lookin at asshole smirks" often quoted with "Aint Skeered!", may show racist qualities--and for the most part love Nascar...articles of clothing:sporting t-shirts, jean or work shorts, work boots, cut off flannel shirts, sporting caps, anything camoflauge.

You might be a redneck if you think jean shorts are still acceptable.

Many of the conditions mentioned in your definition have been exibited in your past posts. Doesn't that make you a redneck? Or just a moron.

Hmmm... The rednecks were not doing the shooting.

To keep with the stereotypes, rednecks are better shots.
