Binky’s Flight 2014 to the Moon


Every year around this time, Binky from Wombania makes a trip to the dark side of the moon to mine for dark chocolate so that all of us can have plenty of chocolate for Easter. I understand that this year he may chip away on a few stars for some white chocolate too. Why so soon before Easter you may ask? It takes a while to go to the moon, mine, then return. But we can rest assure he’ll be back in plenty of time for Winky to make
Lots of chocolate eggs and bunnies at his Winky Wonka Chocoate Factory. What? Why moon chocolate? Well it’s the best chocolate in the universe!




Happy Birthday, Lauren


Wishing you the best birthday ever, Lauren!

Winky’s Afternoon Nap


I look at this drawing of Winky and get a bit jealous. I could use a few zzzzz’s of my own….and some warmer weather too!

No doubt he’s dreaming of all the chocolate and wine gum recipes from the recipe book he’s been reading. I bet Twink wrote that book too.

Find out what else Winky is up to by visiting Wombania

Winter Play

Looking out the window, Enjoying the snow fall.

After it builds up, I make three large balls.

The first two are the biggest,  to serve as the base.

Piling one on the other, and the third one’s the face.

It will need rocks and things to give it expression,

I want to look good, for a nice impression.

I’ll need a carrot, to use as a nose.

Then give it a scarf, so he don’t feel froze.

He’ll need some arms, so I’ll use tree branches.

Then the birds will perch there, and do their dances.

I’ll get a hat, to cover his crown…

There’s one in the closet, I think it’s brown.

Now he’s done, and ready for display.

And that’s how you play,

On a cold winter’s day.


Cold Day

elmo-cold-dayThis has been the longest winter season that I can remember since the mid 1960′s. When I got up this morning is was -4 below with the wind chill, and very windy, as it was last night. It was so cold my dog wouldn’t even do the second part of her business this morning. She just peed and high tailed it back into the house. And right now at 12:45 pm it has finally made it up to a whopping 5 degrees with the wind chill. This is another hot chocolate and baking kind of day, and dreams of spring to be just around the corner….I hope.
