Dirt Road Anthem…MY BUTT!

First of all, HAPPY FRIDAY! It’s so nice to see the week come to an end! I feel as though it’s kind of dragged on.

Second of all, I have beef!! No, no…I’m not speaking of the juicy hamburger kind of beef. I’m speaking of the kind where I have a problem with something. And today’s your lucky day! I’m gonna get right up on my soapbox and tell you all what it is!!

As you could have guessed by the title of this blog, I’m a small town country girl! I love where I live. There are a few problems though.

You see I live on a dirt road and I don’t really have a lot of houses around me like you would find in typical suburbia. As nice as it is to not have any neighbors and lots of privacy I still get these guys…

Every year around this time the flies start hibernating or something within the corners of my house!!! It’s not just one or two it’s about a dozen per room! O.K, well just kill them and get on with it, you say Lindsay? Well, I HATE FLIES and they always come back! I’m actually convinced that the more I kill them, the more they mutate and multiply!! It’s quite frightening I assure you….

Now, I live in a home that I am very proud of! It’s white siding and a green roof! O.k, right now you’re probably have this image of this house with pristine white siding. Well, get that thought out of your head because this is what happens when you live in the country……

Bugs and spider webs that are CRAZY sticky!

These webs are the kind that stick to the house and won’t sweep off with a broom. It’s my nemesis, it drives me crazy! We have to take a pressure washer to these areas twice a year!

Lastly, I’d like you, Jason Aldeen with your Dirt Road Anthem and you there, Mr. Keith Urban and your Where The Blacktop Ends and SHOVE IT! Or better yet let’s make another song and perform a duet, it will go:

Back country I like to drive slow

where the fields of green grass grow.

I know a slower speed is a must

or my pick up truck with shoot a lot of dust!

truck 1

Yes, I think that could be a billboard hit! Hopefully the song will help all the crazy fast drivers to slow it down so that I don’t need to spit dirt out of my mouth when I’m walking on the road!

I’m stepping down now, the vent is over. :-)

Happy Friday!



  1. I have to admit - the people on your road DO DRIVE pretty fast for a dirt road - I always think, why don't they pave that road, it's a pretty busy road, but i think the speed would be worse with nice smooth ashphalt!

    About flies - i hate flies - i hate them because it takes FOREVER to kill them I find!

    Good luck (and they better not piss me off tonight)

  2. hahaha.... you're funny! but I love that Dirt Road Anthem song :) I however don't like dirt roads that much. I'm a country girl but give me my blacktop roads b/c I drive a black car... not so much fun!

  3. Thanks ladies! Stacy, Im actually considering installing my own speed bump on the fifth! ha ha! Don't worry, I think I got most of the flies last night!

    Nicole, A red jeep is really hard to keep clean too! When we are cropping the jeep actually looks white! Give me blacktop road in my country setting anyday!


  4. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was
    just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

    I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

    Here is my site:

  5. I am starting a online website directory and was
    wanting to know if I can submit your site? I'm hoping to mature my directory gradually by hand so that it retains good quality. I'll make sure and put your blog in the appropriate category
    and I'll also use, "Blogger: Small Town Kind of Life" as your anchor text. Please let me know if this is acceptable with you by mailing me at: Thanks!

  6. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you
    have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

  7. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
    against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked
    hard on. Any recommendations?
