You might be a redneck if...

you buy your husband a banjo for his birthday.

Yes, we finally all broke down and got the man his banjo. Parents, brother, sisters, everyone, pitched in and got him a Deering. The kids bought him a case, picks and an instructional DVD. I got him some lessons at a local music store.

He's very happy with his new toy. Ella and Hank want to play the guitar. We're still recovering from Jake's years on the violin so he'll be assigned a quiet instrument. Shane and I will be grateful for our ear plugs while we smile encouragingly.

He must be a very smart and wonderful redneck, maybe an aristacrat redneck.

You misunderstand...he isn't a redneck. He *is* smart and wonderful. Though I'm not sure about the aristOcrat part. :)

*I'm* the redneck for organizing the whole fam into buying the banjo for him.
