krazy koati

I've got a simulated sunshine standing underneath the neon sign

Our Wednesday plan --- and one of the centerpieces for the week --- was visiting Michigan's Adventure, an amusement park which goes back to the 50s and tries to piggyback on the good public reputation enjoyed by Muskegon, Michigan. (Well, I know I've heard of Muskegon often enough, but can't say why.)

On the other hand I did end up eating some candy, on the drive and back home.

Trivia: As the available production process could not produce the perfectly round chocolate-covered caramels desired, the still quite edible ``duds'' were marketed starting in 1928 as Milk Duds. Source: Sweets: A History Of Temptation, Tim Richardson.
