Thursday Portrait.....





Left holding the EMPTY bag again!


One of the places that I enjoy visiting when I'm
outta town, is an old fashioned orchard that sells baked
goods and jams and jellies. They also sell Retro Candy!
When I was a youth, one of my favorite candies was called
Squirrel Nut Chews. They are reproduced by the Necco company
as Squirrel Nut Zippers. They are chewy and delicious!
I bought over 3#'s over the week-end, and after passing out
a few handfulls to some appreciative friends, I dumped out the
bag this morning to see how many was left. Much to my chagrin
and propensity for Synchronicity....How many pieces of candy do
you think that I have left? C'Mon guess....
55 perhaps? Hey, count em if you don't believe me...hehehehe
See Ya Thursday 8:00 PM EST.

See? Squirrels know all about good candy :) (And I'm loving the Timmie's cup, Galen!)

Never heard of them, but they sound good!

I'm sure they are very tasty but I don't think I'll be chewing on any squirrel nuts. Just isn't right, I tell you!

I feel the same way about after eight, thin mints-(I would need quite a few boxes for 55!)not always easy to find either...*GRIN*

I didn't know squirrels wore pants.

I've got my 55 scheduled to post at 8 p.m. tonight, but I'll check back in the morning for a proper link-up.

I've never had those!

I can only say, no candy could be more appropriate to this site and its proprietor. (--and why do I feel there were 57 just before the shot? )

I'll be back later to play with the squirrels.

Rea said...

Dang, there is 55!!
Now, you keep the candy and I'll stare down that cup.
Dbl Dbl, please.

That's funny - I was in a store Sunday with lots of retro candy and decided I'd go back this weekend to get some photos.
