The Vet is IN…

When we last left our Zushie girl, the vet had given us orders to give her melatonin to help her sundowning from her dementia. Well, evidently it has to build up in their system a little to really move things along. OK, that’s something that Mom, “the Vet”, can comprehend.

It’s now 12:23am and according to the National Weather Service, a line of thunderstorms is moving through Delaware Bay complete with downpours and ground striking lightning.

Gee, I wish I had the foresight to ask the vet what I am supposed to do now, when my girls are not happy during the storms, canine dementia or not.

Oh, I know about Thundershirts and the like, and for a while I was giving them both a canine herbal supplement put out by Springtime,Inc., which helped calm them during times like this. If Zush sees me coming at her with a spoon full of peanut butter, and to subject her to another spoonful, well, let’s just say I don’t feel like getting aggravated at 12:30am.

Never a dull moment.

Chick-o-sticks- the advanced class

001

In a previous post I mentioned my fondness for Chick-o-sticks. They are a wonderful candy with that peanut butter crunch without the chocolate.

I had placed the prior post on the chick-o-stick website, and boy was I surprised. I found there was a huge chick-o-stick!
It was big enough and able enough to break and share or just eat it all by yourself. I was green with envy! I never saw them
in the Philadelphia area.

Guess what?

Found them this morning in the Sweet stop at the Reading Terminal market..what a pleasant surprise!

Picked up a few to share with my family. We will truly be happy!

I bow to thee Oh Chick-o-Stick

It’s almost 2:30 PM and I just found two little pieces of deliciousness lurking in my drawer.

Chick-o-sticks.

It’s like the center of a zagnut bar, a clark bar, but just without chocolate. Pulverized
toasted coconut had a lot to do with it too! When I lived on my own , in the 90’s for a few years,
I “found” the chick-o-stick. It became my go to candy: to hell with Reese’s peanut butter cups
I had reached the promised land!Peanut butter!

You don’t see too many of them these days,so when I do, I like to pick up a few.
If you see them, and have no nut allergies, try them! You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
