You Know You're From Central New York When...
You have to name six surrounding towns to explain to people where you're from
You’ve ridden your bike on the Erie Canal.
You can speak a second language: Native American. (Onondoga, chittenango, oneida, Tuscarora, Seneca, Canaseraga, Canastota, Oswego, Otisco, Owasco, Cayuga, Sauquoit, etc.)
Your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead.
You know the correct pronunciation of "Pompey."
You can explain to visitors what salt potatoes are.
You know 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, cold, and construction

A horse is a mirror to your soul. And sometimes you may not like what you see. - Buck Brannaman

You know you're from Australia when:
-> you buy a kiddie paddling pool JUST so you can inflate it and stick it on the tiles in the living room, and fill it with water, to keep yourself from cooking in the heat
-> that bloody emu just ate ya bloody pie
-> 98% of the wildlife is lethal in some way or another, yet you still walk around barefoot at night
-> you drive a Commodore [or a Falcon if you're a Ford nut] and no two of its panels are the same colour
-> you spell everybloodything with a 'U' in it

You know you're from Texas (again) when-

You're an outcast if you don't have camoflauge
90 degrees is a 'nice day.'
The seasons are 'warm, hot, and roasting'
Coke means a soda, not a certain type of soda.
New people are greeting with a big hug and a 'Welcome!'
The only sledding you have is mud sledding, and the only snowmen you have are made of roundbales.
F-1,2,350s are a necessary object for every household.
Everyone has a gun and knows how to use it.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

You know you're from Southern Alberta when:

-Lethbridge is the literal windy city
-you're in the middle of the prairies and can see mountains in the distance
-you know what a coulee is
-The area you live in is actually a partial-desert
-It's January and you can still get away with a hoody most days

This is just a general one about Canada:

-It's called a toque, not a beanie.

You know you're from Sydney when...
- you start shivering when it hits 18C
- summer means watching the cricket with a beer and a can of mozzie spray in hand
- you move to another city and miss having about 30 nearby beaches to choose from
- crossing the Mountains is the equivalent of going to Mordor
- you turn a street corner and find yourself in China
- you turn another corner and find yourself in the 19th century

All of them so true!

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

You know your from Washington when
you have to explain to people that WA is a state.
the weather man predicts snow and you say" yeah right"
you start to enjoy the crappy weather.
In the morning you were wearing a tanktop and sweating,in the evening you are wearing two sweaters and still cold.
stare at people who are out of state when they say they love the rain and the cold.
70 degree is burning.
one part of the state is freezing, the other part they're growing wheat and hay.
your horses are walking around in mini lakes.
80 degrees outside yet the lake water is still freezing.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.
