It's a Sweet Trip to the Candy Shop


During the A to Z Challenge I mentioned that I had the perfect "H" but was unable to download the pictures. I was very happy with the picture of my cousin Hillary that I shared, but I knew I would go back and post these delicious pictures when I could. Right on Broadway you can find the Hershey's Chocolate World and what a sweet treasure trove it is.


I didn't buy any goodies in Hershey's Chocolate World, but I had a great time looking at the decor -- all chocolate themed.


I haven't had chocolate milk in decades, but it once was a great favorite. I would have loved this collection of chocolate syrup in my chocolate milk drinking days. My chocolate tastes are pretty simple. I still enjoy Mr. Goodbar -- love them! -- and a nice Hershey bar. I think most of us remember when they were a nickel. Anyone else a Hershey bar fan?

I'm enjoying the first days of May. We've had beautiful weather, except for heavy rain today. I'm primarily focused on work. I'm trying to wrap up my part in several projects and declutter nineteen years of paper, books, shoes and desk "adornment." It's going well. A number of people have suggested I just send it home and then deal with it, but I'm hoping to get as much out of the way as I can while I have the energy. I'm afraid it will sit in a box at home and I'll lose my oomph to get to it.  

I've asked my friend, Anita, to share her beet salad recipe -- it's unbeatable! -- and she promised a guest post very soon.

On a sadder note, please say a prayer for my colleague and friend, Tim, who is in hospice care at home, and for his wife, Dot. I've known Tim for years and he's one of the nicest and most helpful people I've worked with. Our hearts are so sad for Tim and Dot.

I leave you with hugs and a big kiss.

I love looking at the Hersheys stores here too! They're just so nice to look at. Too bad you can't eat them anymore.

I've been to Hershey Park in PA. Not a big chocolate lover. I can tolerate milk chocolate over dark. And like white chocolate a little. That's serious temptation in your neighborhood.

I can't remember when I last drank chocolate milk - decades, for certain.
I'm sorry to read about your colleague.

It sounds as if your retirement must be getting close now if you are cleaning up at the office. I brought a box full home from my desk when I retired and it is still sitting right where I put it when I got home unopened. I don't even remember what was there. Hope your Thursday is a sweet one too!

Prayers for Tim and Dot. This has to be a very difficult time for them.

Hershey, PA is a place I've visited! So many temptations there! The ice cream was the only thing that I indulged in, and it was wonderful!
