Thanks to Brian Mayer for recommending “Bag Balm“…. I think?
In a recent post on his popular Jersey Shore Beach & Surf Hunter’s Facebook page, Brian said….
“And now that a lot of us will be hunting the shallow surf…. I think it’s a good idea to share a product that has saved me and some others here (they know who they are). A painful yet common condition that occurs when friction and wet shorts come in contact with the skin especially in those tender spots…. Yes I’ll just say it….it’s CHAFING !!
I have been using this product for years and it works and it works great !! Its called Bag Balm…. and when applied to those vulnerable areas BEFORE you go out on the beach it will prevent a very painful and awkward walk back to the car…. Bag Balm is available at most chain pharmacies I buy mine at CVS !!”
So not being familiar with this product I Googled it, and after reading the company’s history I was pretty sure I’d rather have chapped thighs or a red hot pair. Here’s how it went….
“It all started in 1899. John L. Norris bought the formula for Bag Balm®—a salve created to soften cow udders—that worked extremely well”
Thanks so much for sharing Brian. ..? Think I will pass. Hell I am already bowl-legged!
(for the record you can also buy it in feed stores and pet shops).
THE MARY ROSE MUSEUM CONTROVERSY
Be sure to read John Howland’s latest contribution to the Malamute Saloon. It concerns the opening of The Mary Rose Museum, May 30th, as well as the controversy (and mystery) surrounding it. As are most of John’s articles it’s very well written and worthy of your time….
Of course John also takes a pot shot at his UK friend “Heritage Harry” (so what else is new). To read his latest just click on the Malamute Saloon link above and scroll down to today’s date…
