Bluejay on that branch." "Lordy ain't they purty."  "I jus love them." " They are

I couldn't agree more Milli.

Scott, I don't know what a Hershey's Kiss is, but it sounds yummy  ;D

Fabienne et al:  this is what Hershey's kisses look like.  (Not near as good as Belgian chocolate, for sure.) They are made in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Scott, I just noticed: they look like little chubby sperm!

This is a Hershey's kiss Fabienne. I've seen them here in Spain, so they're probably available in Belgium too.

One more go ..  8)



My First Valentine

February 1955

Jack Twist sat cross-legged on Jonathan’s bed, peeling the foil off the last of the Hershey’s kisses Jonathan’s mom had brought up to them a half hour before. 
“You boys make sure to do yer homework! I’ll be coming up to check ‘em in an hour, “ she’d warned, Jonathan had smiled rolling his eyes .. 

A few moments passed, Jonathan reached over the open books and grabbed Jack’s hand.  His big brown eyes even wider than normal,
“You know, J, sometimes I wish you were a girl – you could be my girlfriend .. instead of Sandra. 
I’m not even sure I like her. We could even get married one day, you know? I mean .. if you were a girl.” 

Jack smiled shyly at his friend, his face scarlet.  He held onto Jonathan’s hand,

“You ever kissed Sandra?”  Jonathan nodded, flashing another mischievous smile. 

“Really?  What was that like?” Jack looked at his friend with anticipation, his mouth open. 

In an instant, his best friend lunged forward and seized him by the shoulders, “Kinda like this ..” He knocked one of the open books to the floor as he kissed Jack clumsily on the lips.  Young Jack’s heart pounded hard in his chest. His face was three shades of red when a knock came on the bedroom door.  They both jumped to their feet as Jonathan’s mom opened the door. 

“Jonathan!  How many times have I warned you about doing this ..” 

Jack’s breath caught in his throat, “Er.. Mrs. Robinson, we were just .. um.. well,.. we were ..” 

She held out a photograph before them, “How many times do I have to tell you, I don’t want you going through my personal things.  This was my very best Elvis Presley photograph .. that is, before you drew hearts all over it!  What will I do with you Jonnie?”, she shook her head at the guilty faces ..

     "Ummm sweet Kiss Ennis,"  "You have always had the sweetest
kisses,  but cowboy this is somethin else." 
     "Wanna try again?"  "Yep"
     "Ok, open yer mouth and close yer eyes."  "Heres that Hershey
Kiss. Now here comes the best part."  Ennis  sticks his tongue out
and on the end of his tongue is a Hershey Kiss, and he sticks it
into jacks mouth with his own tongue.  Melting in the hot,  and richly
sweet, chocolaty flavored mouth of his lover.. 
      "What made you think of those candies, Ennis?'  "You!!"
