It would have been impossible to resist Cindy's offer to come spend a day in Hershey with her.   This was too much fun.  I am all female and completely happy being surrounded by chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.  I was quite impressed by Mr Hershey.   I learned how he built a school for orphans when he and his wife could not have children.  He also used the lumber that he cut when clearing the land for the factory, for building the town and houses so that people would want to live and work here.   He seemed to be quite a good man.   The museum ride was cheesy and fun with singing cows and simulated production lines all seen while riding an amusement park, tunnel of love type ride.   What everyone should spend their $7 on is the 3D movie.  The special effects had us giddy and shocked.   Inside the theater, in addition to seeing the action an inch in front of your nose, it actually rained on us, spiderwebs dropped, something grabbed our legs from under the seat and streamers flew.   I was totally into it and at the end, they give you more free chocolate.   It may be a shock, but I did turn down some of the free chocolate.   We did a taste test survey of the new Reese's Whipped.   Yuck.  Hated it.  In the gift shop, I bought a "real" Reese's Cup for Cindy and I to share as well as buying Green Tree filled Chocolate.   That is the one that Cindy said Yuck to.  

I got to meet Cindy's active grandkid's and have fun with them and dine with the family before heading on down the road to Paoli.   Now, this was my first night time driving.   Even on the turnpike, with walls and everything, there are dead deer littering the road.   It became my prayer to get through the country without hitting a deer.
