I WAS A CHUBBY LITTLE GIRL...

whose favorite times were when my father used to take my sister Colleen and me to the Cigar Store ...(Hard to believe, I know) to get $1.00 worth of candy.  Back in the 60's and early 70's that meant 100 PIECES...Ye Ha!  It was like ectasy for the hour that I had alone with my "wax lips" and candy cigaretters (yes, I did say candy cigarettes ;o) before my dollars worth was all gone and I had to start sneaking into my sister's room to steal hers....Sorry Col!


 Where is this going...My kiln!  It's even better than $1.00's worth of candy and calorie free!
