Oh...

And I like Cream Centers too. I usually start with Coconut, then move on to Chocolate, Coffee/Mocha, Strawberry, Cherry, Orange, Lemon...

Of course...

By that time, there's usually nothing left in the box of chocolates.  ;)

Caramels and Creams are my favorites!

Chocolate covered toffee is my least fav.

If you want to tease yourself, take a look at the candy offerings at The Vermont Country Store.

I was planning on going out and shopping today, but it looks way too cold out there.  I think I will spend the day putting up my Hallmark Ornament tree...

The Whitman's Sampler was the best!

It was always a competition between me and my brothers for the "sampler man". -Which, of course, was/is the simplest piece in the box - solid milk chocolate.

Hmmm... This could get (more) interesting...

Tuesday morning greetings!  It's cold and sunny here in SW Ohio - my favorite kind of winter day.  I have some errands - post office, Hallmark store, etc.

Thank you to DR Michael S for the birthday wish - are you feeling better?

TOD - boxes of chocolates are no longer on my gift list, but I used to go for the caramels first, followed by raisin clusters, almond clusters, and honeycomb chips.  The fruit creams were my least favorite, especially strawberry and lemon.  Orange and raspberry were OK as long as they were covered in dark chocolate.

Now I satisfy my chocolate tooth with Tootsie Pops and Quaker chocolate rice cakes.  Oh, and those hard candies from See's that DR Jane sends from time to time.

I shall shortly be on my way to the Wood of Holly to pick up a CDR, after which I will quickly load it into iTunes, and then get it shipped to the mastering guy.

I have just ordered 2 tickets for RISE, the documentary film about the 1961 US figure skating team that died in a plane crash on their way to the world championships.  One of the tickets is a Christmas present for my mother, who made it clear that all she wants for Christmas is more time with me than she's had in the past several months.

Picked up the CDR, which, unfortunately, is a mono version instead of stereo.  I'm praying they can get this redone today and that they can Fed Ex directly to the mastering guy.
