About Jim

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.

Five for Friday


Ugh!  Where has this day gone?  It seems like it was 9:00 AM just a few minutes ago.

1. My mouth is sore from the dentist.   I was poked and poked and poked with the needles to numb up the tooth and canals and talk about having a sore jaw right now.  I’ll swish out my mouth with some salt water before I go to bed.

2 . The rain broke and the sun came out and the humidity came with it.  We went from one extreme to another.  Fun, fun, fun!

3.  Beater truck left me stranded at the dentist’s office when it let me know that the battery was dead.  However I met this really cool vet tho who was a Marine in the Nam while waiting for road assistance.  He tried to help me me by jumping the car but it didn’t work.  It was all good tho. We had a really good time swapping lies while I waited for road assistance.  “Yes” I welcomed him back home or I called it “Welcome back to The Land of the Big PX“.  Vet’s get it.

4. Meanwhile back at the ranch, I’ve had the battery charger going on the beater truck since I’ve been home.  I know what the real problem is with it.  Now I just have to decide if the repair costs for the AC unit are worth the expense.  I always have Petey to rely on for now.

5. My left arm has ached all day.  It’s been another month of record cool temps for central Minnesota.  Where is this Global Warming that Al Gore and AOC warned us about?

There ya have it.  It’s better late than never.  Feel free to comment and/or leave a “Niterz Jim!” on your way thru if’n you would like.

Well damn!!!!


This article here says that I can’t use the following words that I normally use in everyday life cuz I’m over 40.

  • I can’t say or use “OMG“.
  • I can’t use the expression “Talk to the hand!” even tho I’ve been using it for a number of years.  Maybe that’s why my kids get mad when I use it cuz I’m over 40 and I’m not supposed to be using it.
  • Hashtag“.  I haven’t a clue as to what the hell that mean anywho so I’m OK with not using it.
  • Ghosting“.  We’ve used that word for years and now it’s literally snatched away from me.
  • Mom“.  That’s OK.  Momma died a few years ago anywho.  Besides, the gummy’s call their Mom “Mommy” and that’s not on the list so it must be OK.
  • “Literally”.  OK, there’s another word literally stolen from me.
  • “Preggers”.  So I can’t use this word even tho I’ve used it for years?  WTH?  Oh!  Can I use “WTH“?
  • “Netflix and Chill”.  I don’t use Netflix so no loss.
  • There’s a buttload of I-net abbreviations that we used back in the day.  WTH?  I can’t use these abbreviations anymore.  Who do these knuckleheads think came up with those in the first place?

Who wrote this stupid list?  Probably someone under 40 and arrogant and condescending as all hell.  Stupid MSN.com article.
