Do You Duluth?

If I want a rich belly rolling laugh that lasts for hours, all I have to do is pick up my outdated Men’s 2005 Catalog of Duluth Trading Co.  The Hub must have gotten it at the office.  It makes me laugh every time I read it, so I just can’t throw it out.  The descriptions have such solid salesmanship geared toward men.  Every man would probably love reading this catalogue.  And, you’ll love laughing at it as well.  Plus, they just have some high quality and novelty items you can’t find anywhere else.

You can get a free copy on their website, or directly at this link

While you are there, don’t miss these gems from the current edition of Duluth Catalogue:

I’m Not Even Going to Title This One (yup, click again…)

These are both found in the “women’s grooming” section, along with a Wicking Bandana  apparently modeled by Willie Nelson himself, just so we can get an idea of what it might look like on…yourself.

All their illustrations look like sketches, which is just so novel that it’s intriguing.  On-line, you can click “view photo” to see the real thing, which is handy for clothing.  I’d still subscribe to the magazine catalogue, though.  There is nothing better to pilfer through.

Cleaning old mail, I just ordered three different magazines from them…much cheaper than renting a movie, and it’s time for an update!  I can’t wait!  (It obviously takes very little to entertain me in the winter).

You know you want to go see what else is on the site..what are your favorite Duluth descriptions?  Surf around and post on your site, then throw the link in comments here.  I’ll go read them and get a laugh while I await my mail!  Help a girl out! 

(Correction, iCarly is Nickelodeon, not Disney.  I’ll go correct that post.)

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
