I'd forgotten what it was to be that young. During one of my summers of innocence I lifted from the shelf of a local, small candy store something called a "marshmellow pie." It wasn't a pie at all but was more like a round, flat candy bar made up of two gram crackers with a marshmellow center, the whole thing covered with a sweet chocolate.

Thank you for returning me to my early youth for a few moments even if it was only in my imagination.

Wow! That was a great story. You actually took me to that place and day . I could picture everything. I wonder why you didnít continue these two little rascalsí lives to adulthood. This could make a great book,I wonder, have you ever written a book? if not, what are you waiting for :) Keep it up.
