Dude and I went to the road yesterday, I rode, he ran. He sure loves doing that. It was nice, not 70º yet.  Then I made thank you cards and some birthday cards. Melted caramels and scooped out apples to make the caramel apple treats. Well I did "somethings" wrong!  First I scooped out the apples with a mellon-baller...
... and yes that mellon-baller looks was my Mom's.
Melted the caramels in the microwave. Big mistake. Too hot for too long and I thought the microwave was on fire!!!
All the AC fans went on high, ceiling fans on high, exhaust fan on high. Geeeze.......
So tried again according to the back of the caramels package... added a drop of water, microwaved lower heat and less time...
Trouble is, the caramel never got hard again! Runny. Will have to ask Laura how she did hers! Sigh.....
All I know. Happy Monday. Nuff said. Ciao.

Teddy Bear Day
This is exactly what mine looks like. Teddy is in a trunk somewhere. Given to me when I was born by my Aunt Agnes. Kept him with me all the time.
Today is Teddy Bear Day. A Teddy Bear is a special friend to children all over the world. He's cuddly. He makes you feel secure in an otherwise insecure world. He's lovable. Your Teddy Bear is both a companion and a comforter. And, he's not afraid of the dark. He'll keep you safe. Spend the day and night with your teddy bear . Cuddle up to him. Talk to him. And, do all of your favorite things together. Parents and adults: No child should grow up without a teddy bear. If you know of any kid without one, use this day to buy a teddy bear for them. As we become adults, some find it difficult to give up our teddy bears. We feel there is no reason to give him up. Some adults have their teddy bears around all their lives. Its perfectly normal....and okay.
