Thank you, Gunnar! Somehow, I think that's an insult to any self-respecting cat!
Clever, Richard! Thank you for the laugh!
Thank you, Dick, and a Merry Christmas to you! Please note that Mim is in training to wear his mask (even though none of them are allowed outside because they are all "special needs"). The "over the n + 192 more characters

Thank you! Being sort of a "mid-century" thing myself, that does coincide with my memory that it was probably 1960s. I don't remember calling them "boats", but I do remember eating the contents.
Thank you, Shu! I don't remember the brownie ones being as popular when I was a kid, but maybe the folks just ordered what they wanted. I do remember ice cream cones for a dime and baby cones for fre + 253 more characters
