I feel ten years younger. I weigh ten pounds more. Have I mentioned
the Madeira Beach Publix grocery store is next to the McDonald's
dinghy dock?!? Publix has Boarshead pepperoni sticks that are
sinful. And delicious.
This afternoon I'm going over
there to buy another one, plus I might splurge on a couple of
six-packs of IBC diet root beer. It's the only beer I like.
Side note on soda pop: Bottles,
glass ones, seem to last longer aboard my boat. The cans lose their
fizz too soon. That said, if you're a real pop person you will
probably drink it all up before the fizz problem surfaces.
While I'm stocking up on
pepperoni, Constant Comment tea and my pop, I'll also buy a package
of baby wipes. I need to replenish my stash.
The most important
thing to remember about baby wipes is this: Go against the "most for
the money" routine many of us normally follow. In baby wipes search
for the FEWEST per package.
Thin ones won't get the job done. All too often in my experience
they are scratchy or not as nice as the thicker ones. I've seen some
of the 80 per package wipes that made Scott single-ply toilet paper
look thick. Ugh.
Years ago I acquired a plastic box
baby wipes come in. They are often found empty in thrift stores. For
me, having the container means access to the wipes is easier. I
would pay retail (once!) for a plastic container.
I've been purchasing refills ever
since. Buy thick ones, any brand and you should be okay. They are
offered in scented (baby powder is my favorite) and unscented.
I add a few ounces of water to the
package to make them more moist. I do not add "street water" or hose
water. Instead I'll use some distilled or bottled water.
As they come from the package,
baby wipes are a bit too dry. I prefer them more damp. That's why I
add water to the container.
You can also tear them in half.
Each brand tears better in a different direction. I use half quite
Side Note: There are
times when they work just fine for their intended purpose,
i.e. wiping butts.
That's more than enough from me today. Life is great. Fred and
Jessie are fun. Here we are in a pavilion on the waterfront.
Jessie's boat Gypsy along with Fred and Cheryl's Island Time are
anchored just off the shore.
Life is good along the waterfront. Don't forget to give a call on
Channel 16 should you spot Seaweed along the coast. I'm always
I find I use lots more baby wipes in the summertime.
What about you?
Do you prefer scented or not/ with aloe or without, etc.?
