Roller Toaster

Found this Roller Toaster in Charlie’s car bin this afternoon and thought it was fun. We were building a block tower and an adjacent parking lot.

Turns out there’s a Fast Foodie Series of Hot Wheels Vehicles.

In 2020 it was $4.95. Listed at $19.95 today. Yikes! But on eBay a pre-owned one is $2.

I do love toast.

The size of a matchbox car but manufactured by Hot Wheels weighs 1.55 ounces

Annual Fruitcake Reveal

Thank you for the gift of a delicious homemade fruitcake like none other!

I’m loving that darling Tea Cozy too. No matches allowed near that muslin cloth wrapping it!

My sister Mary and I indulged today, now we are back in the Burgh.

A great way to start the new year.

Do you like fruitcake? I especially like this homemade one, chock full of wonderful ingredients.

Misinformed, I guess

I always thought the ability to roll one’s tongue was genetic. Here are Aunt Laura and niece Anna from about 15 years ago, rolling their tongues.

But here’s an article debunking that myth!

Can you roll your tongue?

Another article why can’t some people roll their tongues?
