OP's


One treat you can
almost always count
on at Granny's...
OP's!


Otherwise known
as otter pops,
a few thousand
of these have
been consumed
in this
household.
The current
Elder Dixon
doesn't even have
to cut the
tops off. He
mastered
ripping them open
with his teeth.
{faster, he says}
OP's were a favorite
after a long
day of landscaping
in the AZ sun.


Those are not
the grandchildren
in that picture.
It is their parents.
How old are those aprons
anyhow? Um, OLD.
That apron was made at
a kiosk at University Mall back
in the day with this
amazing "new" technology.
Back before we had ever
heard of blogs
or imagined how many
households would have
personal computers.
We actually
called people to
keep in touch.

So archaic. But
I wouldn't be
surprised if
OP's existed...
even then.


And Iris, your
turn is
coming...what
color do you want?

What a fun post. OPS!!!! And the pictures are fabulous. When I first looked at the apron, I thought it was the younger generation. Wow!!! Apples don't fall too far from the tree, do they?

Thanks for taking such good care of my Katie-bug. She had a wonderful time and absolutely ADORES her AZ family. One of these days I'll show up at your door and let you take care of me!!! :o)
