I got home just in time to greet friends for a little afternoon jaunt. Four of us piled -- rather comfortably, I must say -- into the Box for a trip to the Sweetest Place on Earth, our neighboring town of Hershey. Susanne and I and friends Guy Kehler and Lindsay Mills had planned this little outing a few weeks ago.
We took Rt. 22 out to Rt. 39 and then cruised south to Hershey. Skirting the famous amusement park, we ended up on Chocolate Avenue and the shiny new building housing "The Hershey Story," a museum recounting the life and times of chocolate magnate Milton S. Hershey.
Back at our place, we enjoyed dessert, showed off our new bedroom furniture, and got ideas for some renovation projects we have in mind. All in all, it was a very pleasant day with friends we don't see often enough.
