Thanks Merr, I had fun with this challenge ... this is a picture of me when I was a youngster, back in the early 1970s. My mom had always made her famous Martha Washington Balls (candy) for Christmas, which is a tradition that continues in my family to this day ... fortunately I had the recipe in my Mom's handwriting, so that makes it even more special ...
