Lettin' my redneck blood out

That's Vol Fan's sister-in-law, Zima. She is Santa's helper. Santa is Vol Fan's brother, Harley Rider. And, yes, this is a picture of the sleigh! And that thing has a horn that sounds like a train horn. Literally, like a train horn and is probably illegal!

Last year, Vol Fan and I drove with Santa and his helper in the back. They collect money at different get-togethers throughout the year and then buy gifts to give to needy children. We pull up in low income areas, blasting that horn, and the kids come running!

Our ride is redneck as hell. But it is a lot of fun watching the faces of those children!

Anyone else got a little redneck blood in their veins?

When I was little my great-grandparents has a corner grocery in one of the poorer parts of Oklahoma City. Every Christmas she made huge baskets filled with specially chosen gifts for each person, in each family & I loved going with her to deliver those baskets. The looks on the kids faces.... I'll never forget.

I'd like to accompany your group next year. I have this card that says something about being a redneck hillbilly....It doesn't expire:)

Do you think Zima would let me borrow that outfit Christmas Eve? I think CB would like it.
