Candy These Days...


When I was a kid, I would go to the Brookfield Orchards in North Brookfield, Massachusetts to buy penny candies like Jolly Ranchers and striped plastic straws filled with sour powdered candy. Or I'd go to the local five and dime and buy baseball cards... I had all the Boston Red Sox one year, except for Don Aase, a pitcher. And that was in the days before they sold the whole set in a box.

This is what my daughter came home with yesterday after a walk to the local bakery....

I'm still waiting for baseball cards to make their way here, but I think I'm going to have to be patient. Very patient.
