Every day the cutest little boy and girl walk past my house on their way home from the bus stop and when my dogs go ballistic, they run. So, when the little girl (7ish?) came buy to sell her girl scout cookies, I had to say yes to those Thin Mints.
Thing Mints are the best-selling Girl Scout Cookies- sales look like this
- 25% Thin Mints
- 19% Samoas®/Caramel deLites®
- 13% Peanut Butter Patties®/Tagalongs®
- 11% Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos®
- 9% Shortbread/Trefoils
- The other varieties combined account for the remaining 23%.
- The best way to eat Thin Mints is to put them in the freezer first.
- They are also the second lowest calorie cookie at 40 calories each (my favorite Trefoils-also called ShortBreads- are 32 calories)
- GS sell apprx 200 million boxes of cookies each year.
- Girl Scout Cookies sell for different prices in different areas of the country.
So ALOHA friends…my question for you is this…
Did you indulge in Girl Scout cookies, or any other fundraising sales this winter (yes, Boy Scout popcorn can count)?
What did you buy?
Could not pass this up…

Do you believe in magic/witches/alchemists?
Do they believe in me?

Haven’t had one since Paul Newman died.

’cause if you use me again it’ll be the end of me”
Anyone violate your trust lately?
There is a freeloading family member who is a bit too quick on the Facebook/Twitter status updates.
7. Sara “Sara, you’re the poet in my heart Never change, never stop
And now it’s gone It doesn’t matter what for When you build your house
I’ll come by”
Do you live in a house, apartment or with a relative?
8. Over My Head “you can take me to paradise and then again you can be cold as ice
i’m over my head but it sure feels nice”

I’m still a virgin.
