People do things a little differently here in Tennessee as compared to other parts of the country. We have even been chided as being “One of those Redneck States”. Well, I’m here to tell you that rednecks are alive and well in this State as this installation of the garbage disposal will show. Just goes to show you what you can accomplish with a few odds and ends, duct tape, a pack of Lucky Strikes and a half a case of beer.

This post is a contribution to the Active Rain network.

Have you joined my birthday alarm? It is fast painless and the best part of all, you will be helping me out.

Thanks, Michael

Duct Tape is the Red-Neck solution for most of life's little problems.

Too funny :-)

I think I may have mentioned it before, but our own wonderful military uses duct tape for so many things.  But in the Army the duct tape is naturally army green.  

Not a redneck thing at all!

Morning Michael,

Would you send me the name and location of the school that issued the training certificate for that fellow! I think some of his classmates relocated to Florida.

Looks like this fellow subscribes to the Git 'er done schol of home repair.  You have to admit though, the world would not be the same without duct tape.
