Saskatchewan humour

I think every region/province/state has one of these - I found this in my email thismorning and thought I'd share it with any fellow flatlanders (or ex-flatlanders):

1. John Deere ball caps and camouflage jackets are considered appropriate attire and are routinely seen at the local New Year's Eve gala.

2. You measure distance in hours.

3. You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.

4. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and then back again.

5. You can drive 110 kph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, but a four-lane urban express way makes you a nervous wreck.

6. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

7. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

8. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, mosquitoes and road construction.

9. Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer next to your blue spruce.

10. On Friday afternoon the parking lot in front of the liquor store is full of empty pick-ups: all unlocked, keys in the ignition and engines running.

11. Your Canada Day picnic was postponed due to snow.

12. Your skidoo is worth more than your car.

13. You find 0 degrees "nice, but a little chilly."

14. Opening day of deer season, the Brier final and the Riders home opener are provincial holidays.

15. You have and use more than one recipe which calls for baloney, and can intelligently debate the pros and cons of those used by others.

16. You actually understand these jokes, and you forward them to all your Saskatchewan friends.

That's priceless. So many of them apply to interior Alaska as well. Only up here you'd have to add:

17. Your garage is bigger than your house and was built first.

18. You don't own a lawnmower because all the tires, dead appliances, scrap lumber, and snow machine parts keep the lawn tidy for you.

19. The new addition to your house consists of a 1960s vintage travel trailer and some plywood and tar paper.

20. You've got two cars, two ATVs, three snow machines, and a boat -- but no indoor plumbing.

Nine months of winter, three months of bad ice fishing.

Deer heads & pelts

I currently live in Ontario. But I have lived and owned houses across this country when I sold my house in Saskatchewan having large deer heads and pelts hanging on the wall and around brought more people thru to view, but they showed up.
Selling my house in Barrie Ontario the realtors ask me to take the dead things from the house, I had no problem with this I just want to sell my house for a good price and move back to Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan humour

Having lived in Wisconsin for many years, I remember the weather and understand the humor. I once drove up the middle lane of a three lane road in a blinding blizzard at 70 mph when I was much younger and about as foolish. I now live in South Texas, so I will amend the humor to affairs down here.

1. Camouflage baseball caps qualify as formal attire. It is too hot for any jackets.

2. Distance is measured in hours or days sometimes.

3. You do not even know if your car or house has a heater, the a/c is always on.

4. You think it has cooled off when the temperature is down to eighty. If it hits 70, a cold front has moved in.

5. There are two seasons, very hot and just hot.

6. The parking lot at the liquor store is empty on Friday afternoon, because someone stole all of them when the keys were left in with the motors running, and took them to Mexico.

I have hunted Newfoundland and hope to get to Alberta soon.
