This list of rules will be handed to each person as they enter RURAL Canada (but I'm sure some of my American neighbours may want to make a copy or two).


1. That slope-shouldered farm boy you are snickering at did more work before breakfast than you will do all week at the gym.

2. It's called a 'gravel road'. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your BMW. I have a four-wheel drive because I need it - now drive or get it out of the way.

3. We all started hunting and fishing when we were nine years old. Yeah, we saw Bambi. We got over it.

4. Any references to 'grain fed' when talking about our women will get your butt kicked...by our women.

5. Pull your pants up, and turn your hat around. You look like an idiot.

6. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of mallards are making their final approach, we will shoot it. You might hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

7. No, there's no 'Vegetarian Special' on the menu. Order steak. Order it rare. Or, you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey.

8. Yeah, we have sweet tea. It comes unsweetened in a glass with two packets of sugar and a long spoon.

9. You bring Coke into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over ice.

10. So you have a sixty thousand dollar car. We're real impressed. We have quarter-million dollar combines that we use two weeks a year.

11. Let's get this straight. We may have one stoplight in town. We stop when it's red. We may even stop when it's yellow.

12. Our women hunt, fish and drive trucks- because they want to. So, you're a feminist. Isn't that cute...

13. Yeah, we eat trout. Northern, walleye and pike, too. If you really want sushi and caviar, it's available at the bait shop.

14. They are pigs and cows. That's what they smell like. Get over it. Don't like it? Highway # 16 and Highway # 1 go two ways... get on one of them.

15. The 'Opener' refers to the first days of fishing and hunting season. They are religious holidays. You can get breakfast at the Church.

16. So what if every person in every pick-up waves? It's called being friendly. Understand the concept?

17. Yeah, we have golf courses. Don't hit into the water hazards. It spooks the fish.

(Whew...that was a long one..pardon any typos...)

Take care. ;-)
