Good Stuff Maynard

Recently added four new wonderful albums to my playlist entitled "Good Stuff Maynard" on my Spotify account.

Mason Jennings- The Flood
Mason Jennings-Minnesota
Avett Brothers- The Carpenter

Mumford and Sons- Babel

Not sure when I decided it was a good idea to start incorporating my mom's favorite phrases like "good stuff maynard!" into my own repertoire. The other day, I was entertaining Eric by bringing out some of her most often used including "Home James! And don't spare the horses!" said to my dad just about every time we got in the car after church. Also, any time I would moan about my need to go shopping due to having nothing to wear, she would say " Well, just put a raisin in your belly button and go as a cookie!" Really mom?? And whenever my 15 year old self would let her know how unfunny that was, she would say "now don't go getting your britches in a twist".. and most recently she was telling me about something to do with useless anatomy on a tom cat. 
Pretty special lady. 


  1. Must be genetic. Or just blame it on your grandmother who taught those sayings to her children. She was also keen in her observations, often announcing when we were sick, your eyes look like two piss holes in the snow. It was meant to be sympathetic. Godliness comes in interesting packages, don't you think?

    1. It certainly does. I cannot stop laughing about that! WHAT does that even mean?? Too hilarious.

  2. So to get even you have to put the worst picture of me you could find? Looks like I have a Bee in my britches for Pete"s Sake!

  3. it's not britches in a twist it's knickers in a twist

  4. Actually what your mom use to say, at least least when I was around her was "don't get your knickers in a knot"! I love that lady though ... and have learned much from her over the years!
