Musing on hmmm

Carole of posted today asking “What makes you go hmmm?”

Never doubt the power of people asking hmmm?  I’ve noticed that now, more often than not, hot dog buns are coming packaged in quantities compatible to hot dog packaging.  (Your results may vary, and my survey was limited, as I don’t indulge frequently.)

Just down the aisle I saw big, fat, plastic ketchup bottles that are meant to stand on their lid so the ketchup will dispense freely.  How come it took so many years to get corporate to approve that one?  Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Vermont Country Store( is a thriving business that sells not only basic housewares but also soaps, cosmetics, candies, etc. that once were popular.  Supposedly people no longer buy these things, so they are hard to find.  Remember Tangee lipstick, Fabrege Tigress cologne, Lifebuoy soap, Walnettos?  Go spend some happy time puttering about their site.  You’ll be in better spirits afterwords!

    We use to get their magazines in the mail. They were quite fun to look through.

    I just got their catalog–it must be Christmas in retailers’ minds.
