Jersey Shore Taffy

Well the Hejl Family spent 3 nights at an Ocean City, NJ shore house following Christmas.  Right on the ocean, a great getaway for all.  Good meals, lots of games, great time together.  On Monday when we stopped on the boardwalk to get some Johnson Carmel Corn and walk a while.  Most stores were closed except for Shriver’s Salt Water Taffy at 9th and the Boardwalk.  We passed on the taffy but did pick up some fudge and I did get my photo with Mr. Taffy.

Kissmobile!

A favorite Bird Dog gave me a call Thursday morning telling me about the visit of the Hershey’s Kissmobile Cruiser to the Indianapolis area. Since I have the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile she knew I had to have the Kissmobile. She was right. Deb and I got this Saturday morning right after the Big Sunblock bottle at the CVS. At any rate the Kissmobile collects donations for the Children’s Miracle Network and makes visits at affiliated Children’s Hospitals. What nice service at the same time as advertising.

Doug Murdick’s Fudge

Alex “Eagle Eye” Davidson was riding shotgun on our way to the Traverse City Cherry Pie tin (see below) when he spotted Doug Murdick’s Fudge store at 4500 US-31 just North of Traverse City. Right on Traverse Bay, the view is great. Murdicks also has fudge and ice cream stores in Charlevoix maybe they are related. Not the greatest photo but it was late in the day and the sun was in my eyes.

Julia and I were on our way to College Park when we stopped to have some lunch on the last leg of the trip. We ate lunch at this place. Barbara Fritchie’s home-style restaurant where almost everyone know each other, but welcomed strangers.  Try the meatloaf.

BJ’s Gumball Machine

A semi planned shot. I knew the gumball machine was in BJ’s (a wholesale club) but I hadn’t planned on taking the photo. We were shopping at the home center next door and ran in to get a corned beef for dinner. I wasn’t dressed for this, note the painting clothes.
