Soda Fountain and Chocolates

Yetter’s in Millvale, PASaturday morning.

 I wanted my grandchildren to see an old time soda fountain. It was too early for ice cream so we bought some things to-go, for later after the Children’s Museum-snacks,  bottles of water, chocolate coins and some sour patch kids from the candy selection. 

We will return for ice cream before they head home. 



A Box of Chocolate Truffles

Admiration has several definitions.

For this week’s challenge by Krista, bloggers have admired heroes, volunteers, a beloved parent, musical instruments, design, flowers,art,nature and the gorgeous sky at sunset.

So why not chocolates? Smooth, satiny and delicious.

I’m choosing “pleasurable contemplation” this evening.

As I went to put the gold embossed lid onto  the fresh box of Betsy Ann chocolate truffles I eyed them with pleasurable contemplation.

Admiration.
A thoughtful friend brought them as a hostess gift tonight.

I positioned the lid to hide the empty spots we devoured for dessert before I caught this photo.

Such a wonderful Pittsburgh-made confection. Thank you dear friend. I admire your excellent taste!

Or is it good for several games?

Saw this chocolate board and chessmen when I visited NYC – Spring Break.

If you want one, they will make it for you, fresh!
