Pirates!

Oofta, the Pirates have landed in Hill City, Minnesota. Seriously the pirate in the middle is my mother and she in 82 years old. If it is really a matter of genetics I have a lot of life to look forward to!

If you Missed it…here is a podcast about growing old.

Watermelon rinds and libido? Oofta!

National Geographic photoMy Grandmother made a mean water melon pickle. Perhaps that is why Grandpa Fitz was always so happy!

Today on the news there was a report that the rind of watermelon can have a positive effect on a man’s libido. Kind of like the poor man’s viagra. Giggle. So in honor of this breaking news story today, I have found a recipe for watermelon pickles. No pun intended. This recipe comes courtesy of the Women of Harris, Minnesota Cook Book, circa 1950. This recipe could be blamed in part for the post war Baby boom. 

Enjoy!
