duck dynasty and winder climes

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

Hey boys, how ’bout y’all makin’ yer Ma some wind chimes?”

(photograph of Ma’s wind chimes taken by Barbara W. Beacham)

Now Ma had 5 sons: Jake; Jale; Jate; Jaxe; and George.

Put them together, and you still might not have enough grey matter to make one brain.

“Wadda window climes?,” Jake asked.

“Agin window climes, Jale spit out.  “Idjoit! Its binder climbs!”

The argument went back and forth between the five brothers.

They almost agreed their Ma wanted winder climes, when she yelled out the back door.

“Ne’r mind, kidlings. The gals on Duck Dynasty were makin’ themselves wind chimes. I learnt how to make ‘em DD style.” {word count: 88}

      Reminds me of folks from my childhood too.
      My aunt lived in a rural area that seemed at least 50 years behind the rest of the world. And some of the small dots on the map were mainly one family.

        Oh wow… some rural areas around here were like that back in the day too… small kinship communities

    By this time, Ma must be used to that brainless group. Seems they want to help but just can’t get it together. Good luck to her. Well done, Phylor. :D — Suzanne

    Well done Phylor ~ I love your sense of the quantity and quality of neurones required ~ Well done :)

    I usually mute commercials too. LOL These 5 boys didn’t have enough brain matter to make a full brain. Hahaha! This was funny! Great job!

    I guess with sons like that you eventually end up doing everything yourself. Fun story!

    Funny. I never did watch an episode. But that family has been in the news a bit for um…some controversial stuff.

    Thanks for your visit :)

      I’ve never watched the show either. Have seen ads for the show (I mute commercials) and hear they have a cult following. There even was a chia pet at Christmas time that was supposed to be based on a person in the show! It just seemed the perfect place for Ma to learn to make wind chimes. I don’t think Martha Stuart has a segment on that.

        I think ‘Martha’ can do anything. Though her ‘chimes’ would be refined. I don’t think she’d be recycling Bean cans.

        (I’m not a big fan of Martha either – but everyone is here for a reason …)

    Well done Phylor! Great names and dialogue. One correction if I may. “Agin window climes, needs the quote mark after climes. Thanks for another great contribution to the MFtS challenge. Be well… ^..^

      Thanks about the missing “. The other thing I leave out a lot is the ) at the end of the bracketed words.

    Glad you enjoyed it. Duck Dynasty just came to mind as a good place for Ma to learnt to make wind chimes.

    “Jake; Jale; Jate; Jaxe; and George.” ROLO…. I love these names! Thank goodness Ma had DD to show her, these boys are clueless! Great story!!
