December End


If you eat half a container, your jaws will hurt. I love this candy, a lot of fond memories always evolve. I only get it a few times a year, it makes me want to eat some in the early morning. If you leave children unattended near it, you come back to a lot of wrappers and chocolate mess. It was fun just to unwrap them it seems. Ask Duckie how many he had, and who gave them to him.



Who was that masked man?
We have had a strange beginning for winter. The rain covered the state and overflowed a number of rivers and streams. This should be in the spring, but the road between my daughter's and my homes has been closed for over a week. It has been muddy going for walks, and grasses are still very green.
Near a Army base doing fire rescue maneuvers.

I found this on a trail along a lake. I wondered whose ashes were here and said a prayer for their continued happiness along the path of their dreams.







Gulls in an eating frenzy below a dam.

  6. it seems strange weather is going on everywhere. I left work today wearing just a sweater, no coat. I think it reached 60.
    I've never had that candy before. From the looks of the little one it's pretty tasty though
    Merry Christmas to you

  8. The ashes on a trail seems good to me. I think I'd want my ashes spread on a nature trail now.
