Melinda you are so right! It's great to be busy. If I don't work, we don't eat and this big girl loves to eat he he he!
Kelly, we'd be fools not to enjoy a bomb pop or two to cool off in the july heat! Ghetto swimming pool, I large tin tub and 132 boxes of popsicles add hot cranky children zen! he he he!!
Newleafcreative, hope that you have saved up your money for bomb pops! Thanks for stopping by.
Tracey, that goes for you too. If your lips turn blue I'll tell them not to call the paramedics. It's only the 10 bomb pop she ate!
Anne, you just put me right back into my childhood scuffed knees, bouquets of dandelions and sometime poison ivy! Hey it was the ghetto he he he he!! Thanks so much for coming by Lady bug I appreciate it! hugs to you all!

That's AWESOME! AWESOME, I tell you! Ohhhh, the lucky lucky LUCKY peeps who got their backyard BBQ invitation done by THE Miss V! And bombpops! I haven't had one in a long time, but the next time I hear that ice cream truck singing down the street, I'm gonna chase that man down. My favorite was the middle white part that tasted like 7Up. Mmmm.

Good luck going under. Remember to come up for air once in a while. Got a platter full of fudge brownies with your name on it. And I'm trying reeeeaaaal hard not to eat them all. Love ya, honey pie!

Ces said...

Vee! What are you doing leaving comments on my blog at vampyre hours! I at least have a reason, a very good reason. Nasty people keep paging me for problems. But "going under"? I hope it is for fun and not under some anesthesiologist's face mask. HAHAHAHAHA! Okay. I am getting sleep deprived and delirious. Hey honey, I hope you come out for air once in a a while. I won't be able to go to up there for a week to see my twin sister and I have projects lined up in June and July SOOOOOO...I will go for a quick visit on a weekend but it won't be a long term plan. I live one day at a time now. Sigh*** Don't forget to say hello once in a while okay? Take care. TSUP!!!

Ces said...

Oh, I wanted to say, I love you. Goodnight/good morning. Tsup!

Golly!!! This is super delicious, V! Just look at all those glasses of desserts with whipped cream on top! Don't stay away too long now, I'll miss you... :)

Awesome! I used to love rocket pops.

Susan said...

HoooWeee, this is fabulous Ms. V!!! Love all those patriotic colors, and those treats are making me mighty hungry - just like everyone else, those memories came flooding back with that awesome bombpop, I could here that ice-cream truck jingling down the street! Good for you to be so busy, you deserve it. Have fun and take your time comin' back!

Also wanted you to know, at the NESCBWI conference I just went to (sorry I completely forgot to mention it in my post-forgive me!)there were tons of publishers catalogs, and tricyle press' front cover for 2009 had 'drum city' on it! I was so excited to show my friend Lucy - "Oooooo, there's Vanessa's book I 'know' her!!!"

Rock on!
