    A frankcheezie? How cute. As a kid, (years ago), we used to call them "hot dogs stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon" - how original! My sister and I loved them, Book and her sibs, love them, and I suspect their kids will, too. Go Cubs! Snowbird

  6. LOL - I know you so well! When I saw that band question, I knew you'd say that. In exactly that way, too! hehe

    And yeah, I wish you were still in Williamsburg too because I'd come visit you! :-)

    I was going to post nearly the same thing - thought it might be one of my sisters when I saw the "hot dogs stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon" - then I realized it was my mom. LOL. I like "frankencheezie" though I probably haven't had one in 20 years. Might be a fun thing to make with the kids sometime. ;)

  10. Gal - I appreciate the comment very much. As a writer, imagination is important and I have so much fun writing in the castle. I am honored that someone noticed. Thank you.

    Populating the kingdom.....oh no...no, I can't be....no. Just no.

  11. P.S. I like your sense of loyalty too and friendship too. That's evident in everything we read here.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
