Do Only Old People Buy Sausage?

I’m sure you’ve all heard the Jimmy Dean Sausage commercials recently on TV using  his voice. So my question is, does anybody but people our age know who Jimmy Dean is?

Though he sold the company to Sara Lee in 1984 for $80 million and didn’t die until 2010, he was essentially fired from his spokesman job in 2002.

Why? They told him he was too old! But now he’s back from the grave.

So it’s been at least 18 years since anyone has heard his voice, and now they’ve brought him back (or his voice, anyway), and they’re advertising to who?

Who under the age of 30 even knows who he is?

Our long-time friend and fellow RV’er, Debi Hurlburt, of Debi and Ed Hurlburt fame, has long had a Facebook area called Debi’s RV Kitchen. But now she’s venturing into the video field. And here’s her first video.

Looks like our upcoming storage shed project will be a true do-it-yourself project. Turns out Home Depot, where we’re going to get the shed, doesn’t offer any assembly assistance, and it looks like using one of the online services like TAKL would cost me about twice what the $269 shed is going to cost me.

And that’s just for one guy helping me, not me getting watch two guys doing it all. So it’s just going to be me, with Jan helping out as needed.

We do want to get it all done without too much delay, so I’m going to take off work on a Friday and a Monday so we’ll have Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, if necessary.

Apparently you’re the most at risk for the Corona Virus if you’re male, elderly, and have an underlying heart or lung condition. So on the blog I was reading, someone asked, “How old is ‘elderly’”?

I posted, “I’ve always thought of ‘elderly’ as anyone older than me”.

I mean, it makes sense, right?

At least that’s what I’m telling myself.

It’s hard to stop a man when he knows he’s right and he keeps on coming.
