Operation Caramel Apple

Operation Caramel Apple was a huge success. Without absorbing the ramifications, I signed up to bring caramel apples to a theatrical performance of R.J.'s G.A.T.E. class. At the time, I did not know it was a fundraiser and the teacher wanted to SELL the apples. And she wanted me to make a lot. So now I was stuck, having never actually made caramel apples before, and now they need to be pretty. Step in friend Tammy. Tammy saved my life. She came over and helped me make 29 caramel apples (I started with 30, but Conner grabbed one, pre-dip, and took a huge bite). And guess what, it wasn't that hard, it was fun! Of course, later I made 3 all by myself and it wasn't as fun or not hard. I've decided the success of caramel apples depends on two sets of hands. Thank you Tammy for saving the day! And P.S., every last one of my apples was sold. :o) And here is R.J. in his performance, reciting a couple of stanzas from Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven."
