Things Running Through my Mind

I never did like films where people throw pies, food or water at each other indoors. The whole time I worry about damage and the clean up.

Same holds true with those old cute Walt Disney films where a bear cub breaks into a cabin and spills flour all over the place. It’s just messy and not funny.

I don’t think it is funny when people fall down. I worry if they are hurt.

I find I am leaving the fly open on my pants more and more. Not a lot but more than I used to. I left my fly open today until about 10:30 when I used the restroom. I feel like a forgetful old fart. I hope I don’t start getting that white stuff in the corner of my mouth.

I don’t like to talk to my wife about whom she dated or who I dated before I married her. It makes me jealous after all these years.

This is the ugliest time of the year. It is dark, cold, wet and all the trees look dead.

Last night I/Gigi secured a house sitter for when we go to St Croix in February. I worry about my animals and now I can relax.

Run your tongue around in your mouth. Doesn’t it feel familiar? That is your own little private world that no one else will ever experience from your perspective.

I love Ginger Snaps. They are damn near as hard as my teeth. I love the way the ginger burns a little in my mouth. I can eat 3 or 4 and settle my sweet urge with a minimum of calories.

I hated stirrup pants when they were in fashion. They looked bad on everybody. It used to make Gigi so mad that I hated them yet she would wear them anyway. I have two pairs of shorts she hates and they are my stirrup pants of sorts. Oh sweet justice.

I called my mother on Christmas Day and she made me laugh as hard as I have ever laughed. Her wit caught me off guard. I love her and I am so lucky to still have her.

I have three pound and a half bags of frozen South Georgia shrimp in my camper and not a day goes by that I don’t think about them. Enough turkey and ham, I want shrimp.

Yeah I hate food fights and stuff like that too. Messes are not funny.

I don't like talking to my wife about her former beaus either. It's not a topic that puts me in a good mood.

You would hate the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movie, then. I loved it!

Don't get me started about the former lover thing....

Sorry about your fly. Must be very embarrassing.

You are funny. Some of your worries I can relate too but some are just too funny!

I don't like ginger snaps.
I am sick of turkey and ham too. Me want shrimp.
I hate messes. I am a somewhat clean freak my family tends to say so seeing messes makes me go into a panic state.
I don't worry too much of my fly being opened but if you go around until 10:30am like that, then I say there is a teeny bit of a problem!
I don't discuss my relationships either with my husband. that is just a no-no.

Oh how I have missed your blog over the Holidays.... thanks for my laugh today.
