"Snow cream"
Pour a tall can of Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk into a bowl.
Add fresh clean snow to the bowl to make a good proper "snow cream" consistency.

Well..I hope that you have had a pleasant week.
My week has gone well. Wednesday I spent a little time at the oral surgeon's office. I have an appointment for this coming Wednesday(the 10th) at 9:45 to have oral surgery..3 wisdom teeth to be removed. ....ouch. Am a wee bit nervous, but the dentist performing the surgery has 35 yrs. experience with this sort of thing. So that is a comfort, and I am told that it should only take 40 minutes. Let's hope that is correct, as I certainly don't want it taking a long time...or any problems/difficulties.
Saying all this to say that..after Wednesday I will be laying low recuperating. I may miss a few days here with my friends..wahhhh.
But if I feel up to sitting up and typing..I'll be here....if you don't hear from me for a few days... know that it is cause I am piled in the bed getting some rest and trying to get to feeling better.
You all are very special to me and I appreciate your visits to my blog.
