I am sure that when Timmothy drew this cartoon strip he expected there to be a foot or more snow on the ground, after all it is December 6th and we live in Minot North Dakota.Today, December 6th 2023 we not only do not have snow on the ground but we woke up to temps in the mid 40's expecting a hi...
Now that is a take on the season I don't believe I have ever heard of before. Let's just say it's a Timmothy Timm original. It did make me think of a few random thoughts I'll share.When was the last time you smelled really bad breath? I'm not talking about a spouses morning breath but somebody ou...
I can't say that I have experienced blinding Christmas lights in our, or anyone else's home but I can imagine it.Personally I LOVE light and tend to go overboard with lighting, especially outdoor security lighting. In fact, back when the newspaper delivered to the door my delivery person refused...
I am still looking for that ONE Christmas song that crushes it for 2023. I'm glad I got rave reviews on the one I posted earlier but that was my 2022 Christmas song (I think).I did come across a group I really like named HUMAN NATURE and they do a very nice job but I'm not going to declare them t...
Yikes! A snowblower? That reminds me of the movie Fargo. It would be just as messy of a way to go as the wood chipper scene. We love all Christmas music in our home from the old classic crooners, heavy metal rock, to the comedies like Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer. I found this version where...
Timmothy's cartoon brought two images to mind when I read it. #1 as a little five pointed star dressed like a cowboy with a revolver in it's hand and...#2 it reminded me of an old album cover by Shaun Cassidy. Shaun Cassidy was a teen TV Star on the show The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries and th...
That wonderful Invincible Feeling.We have all felt it and wished we could hang on to it forever BUT as Titus found out when he walked off the end of the table, a fall will often come shortly after. I don't know if any of us can say we feel invincible as Real Estate agents... as in I know I am goi...
Once in a while we totally misunderstand what is going on around us just like Philemon didn't think the garland was edible while Joe on the other hand though Philemon might mistake the garland as a relish.I'm sure something similar has happened to all of us. Some warnings seem totally unnecessary...
With Santa hats ranging from $1.47 on up I would guess that there are a few itchy ones out there on the market. I would guess that Santa's real hat is very comfortable and maybe has an elastic band to keep it on his head as he zooms to every house on Christmas eve.
It's pretty hard to avoid the sounds of Christmas today. I've already rang the bell by the red kettle when I was also selling hot dogs for "The Horn of Plenty" and I've heard them just about everywhere I've shopped as well. It's pretty hard to escape the Christmas music if you are downtown where...
