Shopping

Lolly Loves Lolli and Pops

“We’re going to LollyPop’s house.” Those words are the reasoning behind the selection of the grandparent names around here. Wouldn’t you know it? Now there’s a “sweet shop” called Lolli and Pops. By sweet shop, I mean a candy story. But doesn’t the OTHER sound SO much fancier. Kind of like going to LollyPop’s sounds …

The Friendly Island Tour

Have you enjoyed cruising with me? I hope it has been entertaining. Better than a three-hour tour that gets you shipwrecked on a deserted island, anyway.
