Today Michelle Castle visits Hey Sugar, a candy store in Denison, right around the corner from Jeff’s man cave, Skid Row. The grandkids beg their Paw to take them everytime they come downtown Denison.  It is such a family favorite.  The ice cream is homemade.  The soda selection includes flavors like Ranch Dressing, Hot Wings Sauce, and all kind of crazy flavors.  Then there is all the flavors from my childhood.  It is just a fun place to go.

First, I need coffee

My Favorite Coffee Shop

Today Michelle Castle visits a local favorite – CJ’s coffehouse. A cup of coffee for me feels like a hug in a mug.  I think it feels that way because every morning when I rise, I smell coffee in the morning air.  Jeff (Michelle’s husband) is always the first to wake up.  The first thing he does, after getting himself dressed, is make our morning coffee.  As I am getting ready in the morning, he brings me a cup.  When I am dressed and ready for the day, we spend a little time outside watching the cats, birds and squirrels before heading off to work.  Because Jeff brings that first cup of coffee to me in the morning, to me it is like a hug in a mug.
