Do Rednecks have catalogs?

Because this group certainly looks like they're posing for one.

Photo was taken in a downtown parking garage in Knoxville while we were leaving the Boomsday festival and fireworks show.

These fine rednecks all just seemed to be posing on the truck, ready for a photo shoot. This picture isn't the best, but you get the idea. Quite entertaining, really.

It's amazing how many people - how many different kinds of people - show up to a fireworks show. Looking at this mass of people, there's every kind of personality type you could think of.

High Class
White Trash

Another funny story . . .
Mom was smelling something odd while we were waiting for the show to start. Then she realized that it was that great smell of marijuana. Someone was 'smart' enough to bring their personal/illegal hobby with them and we were the lucky ones to sit close to them. Of course this is the time that you wished a police officer was around, if only to stop that 'wonderful' smell from becoming too strong and in your clothes.
Lo and behold - a Cop happened to have their nose open. So this great Officer of the law slowly walked back and forth above us on the sidewalk (we were on a slight decline of a hill).
Back and forth.
Back and forth.
The smell started to fade. Apparently these people also noticed the Officer and thought it best to no longer share their smell with everyone.
Thanks, officer!!
