Sharing Fudge With the Town of Carleton Place


I had a list of things to do for Ladies Who Lunch today, and one of them was to bring miniature hat boxes to Judy Langdon from The Cheddar Stop on Highway 7. I can’t walk in that store without almost fainting from the Ottawa Valley Fudge I swear. Judy is graciously providing fudge table samplers for the ladies on June 6th. I was going to meet Judy Pallister and Brenda Mattey for lunch and decided it might make a nice treat.


It was hot outside, and even though I was sweating in my hoodie, the fudge was still calling my name. Judy carefully placed a few slices in the box so everyone could share. As I got in my car I noticed my deodorant wasn’t working, (darn natural stuff) so I decided to make a pit stop at home. When I looked in the mirror my hair kind of sat there so I got the crimping iron out, plugged it in, and tried to look alive. When I went to grab it, the darn thing fell in the sink. I stood there for 5 minutes debating if I would get electrocuted if I touched it. Oh what the hell, I picked it and nothing happened. I was good to go!


Clutching the bag of fudge I ran into The Moose and had a great lunch with Judy and Brenda. I found out what a Miche bag is, (Hand and shoulder bags based on a system of magnetic interchangeable bag covers and accompanying accessories) and that The Moose has awesome Bruchetta. Two important things in life I tell you- LOL. Brenda treated, so I made sure the waitress at The Moose got a piece of fudge. I didn’t take a picture as I respect ‘the bubba” and one of the waitresses scares the heck out of me.:)



Next was on to Wisteria and signed a few of my books and introduced Judy to our gals at Wisteria. Gail Sheen MacDonald was there and she also enjoyed a piece of chocolate fudge. God, she looks almost orgasmic!


I thought of Krista Lee next at Applecheeks but instead headed to see Amanda from Simple Pleasures Adult Boutique. Yes, fudge and naughty things go together. Wasn’t there fudge in 91/2 weeks? Wrong movie?

Would there be a piece left over for Krista?


On to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum to get some information on A.W. Bell for a story I am doing. I bartered for information with Jennifer Fenwick Irwin for a piece of fudge. How cool was that?  Being who she is, she shared it with the Museum summer employee Jane.


One piece left- miles away from Krista. What to do? What to do?  Only one way to go! Open Sesame! Goodbye fudge!

Sorry Krista-next time.:)


P.S- I was told to edit this picture by someone close to me as it might not be work friendly LOL

So why would I write this silly blog? Because if every single person shared one thing with JUST ONE other person in Carleton Place today, then this town would get one step closer to becoming the town that everyone else would envy. Food for thought boys and girls!


Thanks for the duck Judy! Huggggg
