Looking out my window this morning


These are all fogged over from last night’s rain and the heat.  it’s gonna be a humid one today in central Minnesota.  While that may be good for corn, it’s not good for Jim.  Heat I can stand.  Humidity?  Well it makes whatever is left of my hair all frizzy and stuff and that’s just not good no matter how you slice it or dice it.

My next electric bill is gonna be humongous.

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

  1. Jim, have you tried Brylcreem or Dippity Do? Under extremely humid conditions I mix the two which gives me a high-performance pomade that is not unlike the vulcanization process used to protect plywood from warping in hurricanes. It’s also economical because even shampoo won’t penetrate it and it takes about 3-6 months to grow out or wear off. In an emergency you can soak it off with a mixture of nail polish remover, Pine-Sol and Ajax scouring cleanser… followed by a vinegar & Clorox rinse. As an added bonus, this treatment also kills fleas! It’s a win-win! 👍💡👍

    1. and I just bet you have to beat of the ladies because they are attracted like flies to you. I don’t know if I could handle all of that pressure and attention. I mean, it’s not like I’m Buffalo Tom or Gunther or Iggy.

      2. Ha! suave and debonair? pfft! I’m just a poor ol’ country boy from Iowa. these big city ladies have their ways about them and they could easily confused and befuddle a naive old guy like me.

        so when are you going on QVC? I’m consider you being in the big time when I see you on there.

      3. Is QVC still on? Me and the guys left in protest when they fired Kathy Levin. I believe she could talk non-stop for 24 hours on any topic. The last time I saw Kathy was in a Nutrisystem commercial with Marie Osmond… frankly I don’t think Marie is cutting the mustard with those diet food shysters. I once heard Kathy Levine talk for a solid hour about a battery operated and waterproof shower radio. Kathy said it would be impossible for the radio to electrocute me in the shower no matter how wet it got. I didn’t order one but I thought she was very convincing. I usually put my Android in a ziplock bag and watch Netflix while I shower. I feel like if I’m paying for a Netflix subscription I’m wasting money when I’m not watching it. I heard that Marie Osmond got every member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to sign up for the Nutrisystem program… and now the tenor section is experiencing a rickets epidemic… or was it scurvy? I just read a book about Pirates nutrition and I get it confused with the Osmond family’s eating habits. I read in the National Enquirer that Jimmy Osmond… he’s the youngest one… has never eaten a vegetable… even though he bit Donny once by accident. Well, I’ve got to go, I need to take a shower and Gilligan’s Island is coming on Netflix!
