You Just KNOW You're In Alabama........

... when your wife brings you dessert and it's a DALE EARNHARDT Collector's Edition Hershey's bar.

Like ... where ELSE would somebody collect CHOCOLATE? Even with The Intimidator's name on it (yes ... the candy bar had his name molded into it, too...)?

I do have a collection of 110 +/- model automobiles and maybe 30 stuffed animals and I can guarantee you I ain't ever even THOUGHT ABOUT eatin' none of them!

Does the candy bar intimidate too?

No but I did finally figure out what it meant.

The candy bar was timid.

I ate it.

No cool whip? I cannot imagine a proper southern dessert sans cool whip! I lack the collector gene so am continually amazed (in a oh my goodness way) at those who do collect. But chocolate is an unrealistic collectible - would get way too nasty long before suitable for The Antiques Roadshow. In my life - it would get too eaten long before anyone had time to say "show me the insignia on the bar?".

Oh yes.

I collect chocolate. I have a special hermetically-sealed vault where I keep it. It's so exclusive that even I haven't ever seen inside it. Input is easy . . . retrieval? Not so much.

Enough said. Have a glorious day my fine friend Bob Cleveland!

I have a similar storage unit. Upkeep is getting REALLY expensive, these days. Fortunately the Feddle Gummint stepped in a few years ago and started picking up the tab.

In fact, they recently paid four thou for a guy to look in there, hisself. He said it's fine but didn't mention that he'd seen no chocolate.

You have a blessed day, too.

If you are truly from Alabama, I hope you didn't eat that #3 candy bar! With Dega coming this weekend, I'm sure there are some NASCAR fans out there right now trying to track you down for heresy...

I have no NASCAR loyalty although a missionary friend of ours says somebody named Casey something is a great guy. I do however have chocolate quality control issues - DH and I -in the name of American quality issues not out of sheer greed and self indulgence - carefully consumed chocolate candy. The little squares with Earnhardt stuff on 'em didn't taste a lick different, Thank you for the opportunity to serve our great country. (yeah I'm having one of those over the top mornings).

LSB: Never had a quality control problem here.

Quantity, you bet. All the way.
