Well Sheena went to the nursing home with Alex and she said gram was in a good mood! But my grandma feels bad for me because i live with so many people. Gram kept trying to give Alex a kiss but he didn't want anything to do with that. All the employees just loved Alex too but he felt uncomfortable with all the attention!

today would have been 69 years for my grandparents, sadly my grandfather has passed but my gram is still a kicking at eastwood nursing home! Today i do not have time to bring her flowers so I asked Sheena if she could do this for me. I try to do this every year on my mother's birthday and their anniversary.

2 cups sugar
1 cup white syrup
1 cup water
Boil together till hard crack stage (300). remove from heat and add 1 tsp. red food coloring (i didn't have red, i used green) and 2 tsp. anise oil. Pour into greased 11X 7 pan. cool and crack and coat with powdered sugar. (my gram made this every christmas).
on a side note, i thought of my girlfriend Heidi while i was making this. She CANNOT stand the smell of anise/black licorice for reasons i will not write about :)
