Thirteen Things About The Redneck

The Redneck’s birthday is Saturday, so here’s a few things about him.
1. He’s part Yurok/Karuk Indian
His grandmother is half Native American. They’re descended from the Yurok, Karuk and the Chimerico.
2. He’s fourth generation Eureka, California.
His family has lived in Humboldt County dating back to the Indians, but they’ve lived in Eureka four generations until he and I moved to Fortuna.
3. He writes poetry
I think it’s pretty good too.
4. He just had gastric bypass surgery last August
He was 500 pounds. Now he’s at about 350 and he has tons of energy.
5. He loves being Scoutmaster Joe
But I think it’s just because it has the word “Master” in it. LOL!
6. He’s going to be 45
I remember when I thought that was OLD. LOL!
7. He’s stubborn as hell
8. And generous to a fault
He works hard to help out others.
9. He’s never flown in an airplane.
And says he never will.
10. He’s an awesome cook
Especially when we’re camping.
11. He’s a bit of a rebel
He doesn’t go along with the crowd.
12. He won’t wash dishes.
13. He’s an awesome Dad. The best!
Happy Birthday, honey.
