Talk about major flash backs. I was in the dollar store the other night, when I saw the candy isle. Bottlecaps were the first thing that I saw and I got them. Total impulse purchase. They have changed the packaging from when I was a kid, they used to be in a bag, but now they come in a roll similar to sweet tarts. I had the weirdest sensation when I opened them. The smell a lone and the memories of being 5 on a hot sunny day in Halifax going to the park and stopping in at Roger's to spend that 0.25 cents that you got for the week if you were lucky. Talk about movie playing in my head. And then I ate one, total out of body experience was transported back in time, funny how smells and tastes can do that to a person. After 17 years the taste of bottle caps hasn't changed a bit.So if anyone has Bottlecaps, and they don't like the Rootbeer ones, I'll eat them!

What sort of candies do you remember when you were little?

The calm before the storm

Well I know that I have been that current with my postings and I do apologize. Right now I just feel like jumping on top of my little unsturdy table that I work on here, and yell at the top of my lungs and see if anyone notices me. With all these people telling me how busy they are and they don't have time, you'd think they could find a task for me to do. This whole month has basically been too quite. I have far too much free time. You'd think that would be a good thing, but I just know that there is something coming, what it is I don't know.

I am thinking of making the trip to Montreal the weekend after the long weekend. That would be nice, fun to see everyone, go out for good food, do a little shopping. Then in the winter time I am looking at going to London, England for a tour. Just a nice vaca to get away.

Things at home are crazy as ever. Guinness is a joy and blessing, who would have thought that a dog could bring so much love into ones life. I always thought those "dog people" were nuts. Well let me be the first to admit I was wrong! She is the cutest thing, and it's hard to stay angry at her when she looks at you and tilts her head. You just want to pick her up and give her a hug.

More later, just had a sudden burst of I need to type something. I am sure there will be more to follow
