Big chocolate footballs

The other week when I was at the grocery store I noticed these big
chocolate footballs nicely decorated all over the store, most in nice
cellophane packaging, I had no idea what this was all about. All I
could think was that it had something to do with back to school presents.

Well today Chris and I are shopping and take a better look at the "big
chocolate footballs", no, they're not footballs, of course not, they are
big chocolate eggs!

Some are small, but most of them are really big, as big or bigger than
footballs! They looked yummy!

We skipped that, did get some ice cream, which can be expensive. There
is some ice cream here that is $8 per liter! I guess Ben and Jerry's
costs as much?

Happy Tourism Week!

Woo Hoo, another long weekend coming my way, and I have to say thanks
to the tourists! How's that? Well unofficially, but officially this is
Holy Week in probably another South American country, except for Uruguay.

To keep with the politically correct them of our time, this is "tourism
week" or in espanol, semana de turismo.

So after tomorrow I get Thursday and Friday off, cool.

I had yesterday afternoon off and to day was my first full day since our
summer schedule ended. My coworker in turn had today off. Well, come
closing time I have a sign out sheet on my office door, I sign out and
noticed that my coworker had signed out at 5:30 yesterday, I was signing
out at 6:00, then I realized, DOH! I forgot about the summer schedule
being over and I could have left 30 minutes earlier!
