Up before dawn to get Kyle to the bus.  Made him his sandwich, same as yesterday.

My work laptop is so slow it takes 20 minutes to login at work.  Frustrating.

I get a call from the garage door repair guy...he can come later today to fix the broken spring, pulley, etc.

This day in history "
Unwilling to rest as a one-hit wonder when its first big hit, The Monkees, went off the air in 1968, the television production company Screen Gems wasted no time in trying to repeat its success. On this day in 1970, in the 8:30 p.m. time slot immediately following The Brady Bunch, ABC premiered a program that would give Screen Gems its second TV-to-pop-chart smash: The Partridge Family.".

I was only 8 years old when the Partridge Family first aired.  A different time and place, simple and wholesome.

I left work early to meet the repair guy.  After 2 tries with different springs and pulleys, he got the garage door working perfectly.  I decided to have a nice wholesome snack.  A cup of coffee and some mallomars.

I bet I had my first mallomars when I was a little kid.  Scooter pies, drakes cakes, hostess.  When twinkies were real, and had trans fats.

Kyle gets his MRI and a first visit at Physical Therapy.  His coach really misses him already and pushed the trainer and doctor to get things moving.  Kyle is nervous as the results wont be back foe a couple of days.....

I treat Kyle and Sue to a nice juicy porterhouse when they get home.  Meat Farms, $4.99 a lb.  , how can you resist.

I run out to pick up an early birthday present for Kyle.  FIFA 13.  If he is not playing soccer, he is playing soccer.

Did I tell you Mallomars are in season.  I never used to believe that there was a mallomar season.  I guess in the old days, not all stores, supermarkets had air conditioning, so in the summer they would melt ?  Do they have mallomars in Florida.  OMG, maybe they are only sold in the north.

More research needed

P.S. Mallomars are smaller now than they used to be.  Eat two, you can't eat just one !


In the US, Mallomars[19] are produced seasonally at Nabisco. A graham cracker circle is covered with a puff of extruded marshmallow, then enrobed in dark chocolate, which forms a hard shell. Mallomars were introduced to the public in 1913, the same year as the Moon Pie (a confection which has similar ingredients). The first box of Mallomars was sold in West Hoboken, NJ (now Union City, NJ). Nabisco discusses it with a short story printed on Mallomar boxes.
Mallomars are generally available from early October through to April. They are not distributed during the summer months, supposedly because they melt easily in summer temperatures, though this is as much for marketing reasons as for practical ones.[20] Devoted eaters of the cookie have been known to stock up during winter months and keep them refrigerated over the summer, although Nabisco markets other fudge-coated cookie brands year-round. Seventy percent of all Mallomars are sold in metropolitan New York. The issue of Nabisco's choice to release Mallomars seasonally became a parodied topic on a sketch delivered by graphic artist Pierre Bernard on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
According to the box, Mallomars are made in Canada by Kraft Foods. In Canada, these are known as "Dream Puffs."
