Journal, Lauren, Lloyd

Happy Birthday, Brad!

There’s a little candy store just up the mountain from Lauren’s folk’s house, and they took us there last time we went to visit. The candy was homemade and magically delicious. There were also rooms filled with cash registers. I’m not sure what the story was here. It was a little store, and they didn’t have enough employees to use all of these cash registers anyway. I don’t even think they would work with credit cards.

Guess which one is Lauren

One of these buttons said “Big Mac”

      I like how that one has a hand to point to the numbers, since you’d obviously be distracted by all the technology. “Look here! Stop being dazzled, look here!”

    I LOVE old stuff like that! It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie!

    PS -- I found Lauren!

    I like the little store. When they first opened, I thought, “How will they ever make a living at this in little Eckert, CO? But they ship out all over the country. If you google, “Drost’s Chocolates” you will see. They are based in Indian River, Michigan. I guess the dad decided to take it easier, and moved here.

    According to GoogleEarth, the candy store is 39.3 ft. high in elevation than our house (5564.3 / 5525). I’ve been looking, but no chocolate is flowing down the mountain to our house. 🙁
