visiting the Rednecks of Petaluma

This, being a blog -- I can say things that might be best left unspoken, but let me tell you that Petaluma, California, might be your typical ham-and-egger American town but it is also full of Rednecks -- the type that would blast ducks out of the sky with a shotgun.

And it's hardly a fair fight. "Hundreds of super-propelled bits of round metal all headed for my butt if I don't get out of here". "Quack".

I'm familiar with this area and the people who live here, and I have to say I like the area much better than the people. Did I mention that they're mostly Rednecks? They blast ducks out of the sky with shotguns.

Dick Cheney is a Redneck too -- he likes to go hunting. You probably remember his hunting accident a while back where he blasted his hunting mate, Harry Whittington, a 78-year-old Texas attorney, in the side of the face with "hundreds of super-propelled bits of round metal". Whittington survived.

The accidental beauty of a Redneck's barn.

And every Redneck needs a red roof on his barn. Amen.

With the title of the post and the first image, I thought I was going to learn about a new species of duck in the area.

Hi SINBAD'S DAD -- Naw, all the ducks in Petaluma are cool, not rednecks at all, at least when they're not getting shot at...

I don't know if you're going to believe that but I lived in Petaluma for a while, so I am too familiar with the area. I used to drive a V8 back then ;) (when in Rome ;)

The best part is the old town, as I'm sure you already know. You can see some really cool older houses, there, when you walk around (well, they're not all that old but they're much better than everything they built on the west (?) side.)
