Duck Dynasty



When I was watching TV the other day, I flipped past this show and saw these rednecks with their long, scruffy beards, but I never stopped long enough to watch.

I am clearly not into duck hunting, so I changed channels.

Then later I heard Eric Harley, of the Red Eye Radio Show, mention how much he likes it.  Well, since I enjoy Eric and Gary on their show so much, I thought, maybe there’s more to this than I thought!

I looked them up on Wiki, read all about it, and tuned in.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_Dynasty  

Sure enough, I am their newest fan.  J

It’s the #1 non-scripted show on TV, and the season premiere in February broke all kinds of records with 8.6 million viewers.

But what surprised me the most was the daddy praying around the dinner table at the end of each episode.

How refreshing!  Good salt of the earth people thanking the Lord for their food on national TV??

Turns out their priorities are Faith, Family and Ducks, in that order.

Here are some links:

The daddy of the family, Phil, talks about his faith here:

And son Jase talks about his faith here: (8 min version)

And when I watched this interview, I realized -- merciful heavens, I recognize that background!  They’re at Oklahoma Christian University, a mile from our old house!!  I drive by that duck pond all the time! 

I had no idea he’d ever been here, much less 2 weeks ago!
Small world.

Anyway, it’s nice to have a new show to knit to and enjoy. 

They are a true American success story, and I never would’ve dreamt that they were millionaires.  What a hoot!

So if you haven’t tried it, you might give it a few minutes and see if you think the characters are super-colorful and fun to watch, too.

XOXO,
