Happy National Caramel Popcorn Day

The Rueckheim brothers, Frederick and Louis, first mass-produced the favorite caramel coated popcorn and peanut treats to sell at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. Since then it has become a favorite item at baseball games thanks to the 1908 song, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

The illegible ink home is enjoying our Crack Jacks tonight while root, root root[ing] for the home team. It's still early in the game against Detroit, so hopefully the O's will make a come back for if they don't win, it's a shame.
My surprise inside was an "ant pencil topper." Did you know a typical pencil can write 45,000 words or draw a line 35 miles long? Wow!
