And we jump on it...

Have you heard this song? Some friends lent me the cd by John Anderson it goes a little somthin like this....





Granny's on the front porch
spittin' in a cup
tryin' tuh fix a nightgown
that the dog tore up.


Mamma's ole' clothesline
finally bit the dust.
Brother got a broomstick
and propped it back
up.

We coulda had a dryer or a sewin' machine,
but Daddy went and bought us a trampoline!<>em>



And we jump on it
every chance we git
Mamma and Daddy and all us kids.
We ain't got much, but we got this
and we jump up on it.





Brother does back flips
with his eyes bugged out.
An Daddy says uh back flip
is what it's all about.



The whole town's talkin'
and they say it looks like
some white trash circus
has hit the neighborhood


We don't know what in the world they mean?
Mamma says their jealous of our trampoline!





And we jump on it
every chance we git
Mamma and Daddy and all us kids.
We ain't got much, but we got this
and we jump up on it.



Daddy says life is such a crazy mess
you gotta jump on your chances
for some happiness.
We all see what Daddy means
uh way up here on this trampoline!





Yep, that's us! Maybe this summer we can get a stock tank, I hear they make a nifty swimmin' pool!

Yes, and what you can't see is the baby in just a diaper covered w/ leaves and dirt. We are high class citizens!

You forgot to mention how I wrenched my neck with a day after we got it with a "hey kids, check out this move I used to do when I was in high school."

I think you caught the act "pre-crack" in the fourth photo.

What is the oversized handle bar for?

And April, you are one of the prettiest women I know. Um, honey, that picture doen't exactly do you justice...

Melanie,
The bar is part of the netting that was still in the process of being constructed. The beauty pagent picture of me I thought expressed the back woods Mamma that I've become, the kids making hand gestures around my head, it was perfect.
