Real Mashed Potatoes

I have never been able to find an instant mashed potato that tastes right. With so many different varieties available these days you would think that one of them would please my taste buds, but it hasn’t happened yet. So I’ll just keep on making them with the real thing and enjoy their taste the old fashioned way.

The Real Deal

Birthday Hitch

I’ve decided to go ahead an purchase one of the curt hitches that my brother-in-law has been wanting for his birthday. Guys are so hard to buy gifts for so I’m glad to know that this year I will get him something that he really wants and needs and will use, thanks to me! I just hate giving generic birthday gifts, just so you will have something to give. I swear if I get another bottle of body lotion for a gift I’ll just throw it up against the wall.

AvidMax Outfitters

One thing that I haven’t done in a long time is to go out into a wooded area by some type of water and go camping for a few days and nights. I have a good amount of camping gear and I’m sure that what I don’t have I can find online at AvidMax Outfitters. I’m sure that I would need a new sleeping bag because the last time I let someone use it and when they brought it back to me it was so dirty and in such a sad state that I just threw it out with the week’s trash pickup.

They have some pretty cool sleeping bags out these days. Check out this one that I found today. It’s a Marmot Sawtooth 15 Degree Sleeping Bag. It looks so futuristic to me. Something that one of The Jetson’s (a cartoon from back in my day) would be using to sleep in. And this puppy is lined with down!!!! That sounds warm and comfortable enough to keep me happy in the woods.

I’m figuring on supplying the center pieces for the family Memorial Day dinner this year. I’m not the best cook in the world, so my mother has asked me to deal with the center pieces instead of bringing over a side dish, which has always been the we have dealt with feeding so many people on that special day.

ProPlants has a good amount of lovely center pieces that I have found online. It didn’t take as long to make a decision and place my order, as I originally thought it would. So I can check another task off of my long list of things to get done by then.
