      Another similar treat is to put some peanut butter between two Ritz crackers then dip in chocolate. I have used the little "Ritz Bits" and dipped them in chocolate. I like anything dipped in chocolate! Vanilla wafers can be used instead of Ritz crackers.

    A former male student of mine posted this on FACEBOOK: Does anybody have a fish finder they aren't using that I could possibly buy? I need one for my boat and don't really want to go out and spend a bunch of money on one right now. If you have something, just make sure it's all in tact and in working order please! My reply to him was: “Have you tried a hungry cat?”
