Second, and this really should have been first:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTOPHER! My oldest son is 21 years old today! He is off at college, so I can't celebrate with him, but, we celebrated in Texas over Spring Break.
While in Texas, we visited the Dublin Dr. Pepper Bottling Plant in Dublin, TX. This is the oldest Dr. Pepper Bottling plant. It is also the only Dr. Pepper plant that used the original formula with Imperial Pure Cane Sugar instead of artificial sweeteners. I quit drinking Dr. Pepper years ago because it was 'too sweet'. Well, I drank Dublin Dr. Pepper, and, it is so smooth! Just the correct amount of everything. My son, HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTOPHER! , has had Dublin Dr. Pepper, and we have made the cake and icing (shown in the picture). It was really good. So good, in fact, that that is why we went out of our way to stop by and get more Dr. Pepper and cake/icing mix. We got enough to give as gifts, too. Unless you are in the Dublin area, you can only get these products online. Well worth it.

Lastly, a special Thank you to all of you who voted for my jacket last weekend. I wore it Saturday when I was at a local thrift store, and another quilter stopped me and asked how to make it. I gave her a tutorial right there in the shop. It's so much fun to meet other quilters and share our hobby. Quilter's are great! Thanks again everyone!
