Cake Pops Summer Sensation

My humans recently reported on a new (to them) tea time treat they found:

Someone posted a photo on either Twitter or Facebook showing this newfangled treat she had purchased from a local coffee shop. It was called a “Cake Pop.” Immediately, I had to have one. Not kidding here.

So, I wrote a note for hubby, who has a part-time job working near a Starbucks: “Buy me a Cake Pop.” (I had to explain what a Cake Pop was.) He would trundle off to work, toil away, and then come home to “Where’s my Cake Pop?” This was after I gave him a big hug — honest! He would look abashed and say, “Sorry, I forgot.”

This went on for about a week. Sigh.

Finally, one day he came home and again looked a bit down, only to pull out a little paper bag from his lunch tote and start smiling. Cake Pops! Yay!

Then, I made him wait two more days until I had a chance to take a lovely photo. Once I had clicked the shutter, those Cake Pops were really in danger! We gobbled them up, relishing every luscious chocolaty gooey bite. Aaahhh!

By the way, the liquid in the cup is definitely not coffee. It’s a yummy, malty Assam tea with milk and sweetener.

Book Review: “Fugitive from Asteron” by Gen LaGreca

Update 5 July 2017: This novel just received this award!

What do you do when you want to write novels? Well, you sure don’t sit around and wish, want, and hope. You write! This is the third novel from Gen LaGreca, published by Winged Victory Press. Her first two were Noble Vision and A Dream of Daring. The first was a medical thriller and the second a romance drama set in the days before the outbreak of the Civil War. Now she blasts off into science fiction, but with the same core philosophy that was the framework of the first two: the glory of the individual. We hold that within each of us, but for some, that wondrous thing we call the self never gets a chance. In this book, though, it most definitely does.
