THE NICHOLS FAMILY

Just for the record TLC...

I have lived in Dothan for 5 years now and have never once participated in or even heard of lawn mower racing.  Thanks Bama Belles for telling the world that lawn mower racing is regular past time in Dothan.  I have taken a poll of friends who have lived here longer than 5 years (like all their life) and turns out they have never heard of this activity either.  Thanks TLC for making us look like Hick Town USA!  I give this show two thumbs down....minus Jana and her story because my heart breaks for her.  Jana had an appointment with my doctor last night on the show, Dr. Nicholls, who is fabulous.  I can't wait to ask for his autograph when I see him in January.  Also I found out last night when I was watching Bama Belles that "anybody who is anybody in Dothan goes to Cowboys."  Guess we are nobodies! (:

I cannot believe I have never taken you to Cowboys OR the lawn mower races. I am a terrible friend. We must go soon. :)

this is my first blog comment ever but i just had to let you know that these were my exact thoughts....and I have lived here twenty-six years!!!! I'm glad to be a nobody if that is the case:)

Lindsey said...

Haha Kristen. That's great! You know me well enough to know that I have many comments about this show. However, I'm gonna be nice and not type them all out. :) But you know I'll probably tell you later! ha And I'm glad I'm a nobody too.

Oh my GAH! That show drives me crazy! But I keep watching. I guess that's their whole point. I love how they have this huge introduction about Val not being from the South because she seems like a decent person. Then there's DAKOTA, who is also not from the South, but they don't mention that on the show at all because she is trash and that's what they want everyone to think about AL!

I'm pretty sure that I'll sign up for the "nobody" category too... Dothan is not as redneck as people would like to think!

Margaret said...

Oh wow-dru and I just watched it tonight on tivo-wow is all I have to say!! I'd be a "nobody" too if I lived there, I'm sure!

I'm with you 100% on Bama Belles! I've never heard of lawnmower racing, and I've never been to Cowboy's, so I'm a nobody, and I've also never fed an animal by holding its food in my mouth and letting them eat it! But like Lauren said, for some reason I keep watching... Dakota and Amie REALLY get on my nerves.

I wanted to add a comment to this because I thought it was funny... When I was in college at UA I went on a date with a guy from Anniston Al, During this date he let me know that he himself had not only participated in but actually WON a lawn mower race, shirtless. Yes, so TLC you must have it wrong its not Dothan its ANNISTON! haha I'm sure some people are going to be upset about that but hey, its the truth at least from my one and only date with the Winner of the lawn mover race!
