Today's Activity: Peppermint Candy Ornaments Provided by Dizzy:

Peppermint Candy Ornaments

*Peppermint Candies
*Metal Cookie Cutters
*Non-stick cooking Spray
*Parchment Paper
*Toothpick or skewer
*Twine or Ribbon

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray the inside of each cookie cutter with cooking spray. Lay cookie cutters on baking sheet and fill with a layer of peppermints.
Bake for 3-9 minutes. Keep an eye on candy as it melts, remove from oven when candies have melted together.
Lightly coat a toothpick with cooking spray and use it to make a hole in each group of candies. Let candy sit inside cookie cutter until it re-hardens. Once hard, carefully stretch out the cookie cutter, pulling it away from the candy, to pop out your ornament.
Wrap these peppermint treats individually in plastic wrap, if you’d like.

Would I rather...? Oh this is good to tumble about. 
For me:



*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?


The Tops

*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?


Riley

*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?


Dale's mother

*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?


My swimming and riding both lack style and grace, so either works.

*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?


Can I meet them all on the border?

*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?


Flynn

*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?

Paul

*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?

Flynn's - yikes, I can feel him glaring 

*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?


Ice can't eat my face, so ice

*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?


Cinnamon rolls

I’d rather spend a day with the FCR Tops.


I’d rather go shopping with Flynn.  (I hate it as much as he does so we’d dash in, get it done and LEAVE!!)


I don’t want to meet either of them.  I don’t want to meet people who can cause so much harm.


Much rather go to the hot springs.  Horses are terrifying!!


I’d visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy.  Oh the history I’d lose myself in!


I’d rather not be spanked but if I had to-Flynn.


I’d share with both!  Paul one night and Riley the next.


I’d rather read Flynn’s.  I think he’d be kind of dominant.  YUMMY


I’d rather track a cougar.


I’d rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls.  I don’t like Mac and cheese.

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops? Tops, unless there was a Brat meeting and I could go to it!

*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?
Riley - sounds like fun and games even if we didn't get much actual
shopping done.

*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?
Dale's mother because I just don't understand her and maybe I'd get
some kind of insight if I met her

*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?
Can't I go riding and then soak my sore muscles in the hot springs?

*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?
I think Italy, but maybe my plane will have a layover in France

*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?
Wait?! Why am I getting spanked?! I'm perfectly well-behaved always (Just ask
Cat).

*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?
I'm poly, so BOTH. (-;

*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?
Flynn's first.

*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?
How 'bout I stay in bed with Paul and Riley? I'm sure the rest of you have these night
time ventures covered.

*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?
Mac and cheese

Omg, FCR Would You Rather is SUCH a fun idea! I love it!! Laughing

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?
Depends on the day and/or my mood... but today, I'll say the brats Very Happy
*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?
Riley!
*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?
Ohhhhh wow. Fantastically hard question! Hmm... I think... Dale's mother. 
*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?
Riding. I've never ridden a horse in my life, so I'd need some lessons and/or a miracle to do it, but I'd like to see the whole ranch if I could, rather than be confined to the (although lovely) hot springs.
*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?
Peter and Lewis because I've always wanted to go to France.
*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?
Jasper. He doesn't have an affinity for the use of the Lexan...
*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?
For actual sleeping, Paul (because I think if I remember correctly, Riley can sprawl out when he sleeps and I'd have a hard time sleeping around his sprawl). For a "fade-to-black" moment, unfortunately neither because I'm ace haha
*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?
Ooooooooo... Flynn.
*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?
Tracking a cougar!!
*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?
Mmmm... both Very Happy

Today's Fun Thing:  It's the FCR Would You Rather Game!  What are your answers?!

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops? Brats (they’re more fun)

*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley? Flynn. (I hate shopping)

*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad? Neither (but if I had to choose – Dale’s mother so I could tell her how I really feel about her)

*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding? This is a hard one, why not both, day of riding followed by a soak in the hot springs? (Ok, I choose the horse)

*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France? Italy. (Though I loved France, Italians are more fun)

*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper? Jasper!!!!!!! (Flynn will be too busy with Sas, anyway)

*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul? Paul (he’s a quieter sleeper)

*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time? Flynn, of course!

*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar? I’ll track the cougar, especially if it’s in Summer!

*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese? Mac & Cheese! Yum

Having one of those anxiety ridden nights.  I’m loving the responses to the Would You Rather questions.


I think there ought to be a Flynn and the No Shopping Club.   Everyone else can go shopping, we can all take Flynn out for a cup of coffee!

You can make them with Butterscotchies too.  They are super simple to make.  My own kids and I used to make them.

I'll join you and Flynn in the No Shopping Club, @Dizzy but I think he will insist on Tea.

Butterscotch ones sound great too.

@Hayjude
I can't remember where it was Flynn mentioned the acreage, Judy, but in Book 1 - Falls Chance Ranch, Riley says "We're on eighteen square miles here, we're miles from the borders of the ranch." Which equates to 11,520 Acres.
So you win the prize!!
Now why haven't you played the Would You Rather Game?? I am waiting so impatiently for your, and Cheryl's, answers. bounce

It was mentioned twice in the short story Echo, with the mare and foal Bandit rescued. Give me time with the other answers. I’m a working girl you know! That’s a lot of typing. Didn’t want to answer the same as everyone else as well.

I’d rather spend the day with the brats, esp. if they hold a Brats Meeting - I’d like to eavesdrop. The Tops would just find you work to do.
I would send Flynn and Riley off to shop together, then I would wander on my own quite happily - shades of Jasper?
Flynn’s dad would be my choice - I’d like to sprook to him about how well his son has done - with a doctorate AND a super successful ranch. Actually, we could put O’Sullivan Snr and Dale’s mum together to form a Bad Parents Anonymous group!
Everyone probably knows I’d rather be at the hot springs with Jake and Tom.
Peter and Lewis made an appearance in CC but seemed rather sleepy, so I think I’d visit Italy.
Can I take a rain check on the spanking if I promise to be good and not sneak away with Dizzy to drink coffee?
I’ll be sleeping out at the bunkhouse with you know who, thank you!
Flynn’s first time was probably with Paul or Jasper, or both, so let’s hear about that!
I have no interest in hunting big cats so I guess I’d help break ice.
Paul’s Mac and cheese is a definite must.

Huh! Now you have to choose who is going to spank you, because we all know you will try to sneak off with Dizzy for a coffee!

Oh my! Now I guess I'll have to change my answers. I was sure I wouldn't get in trouble, but the coffee thing is really going to trip me up! But, Judy, I'm with you. I definitely want to hang out with Jake and Tom and IF I get caught with the contraband coffee, send me to Jake! Please!!
Also, love the "Bad Parents Anonymous". Ranger and Rolf, maybe someone could start an online group for all the inadequate parents of the Ranch folk.

I’d be more than happy to host the first meeting of the No Shopping Club!  Flynn can come on over and we’ll head up to the hot springs.  The hike to the springs combined with the hot water should soothe him a little.

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?


The FCR brats.

*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?


Riley - we could go do something fun, like visit the candy store or the cupcake shop.

*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?


I'll pass.

*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?


Riding.

*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?


I don't like to travel, but I would pick Miguel and Tazio.

*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?


I know it's not a choice, but Paul.  If I HAD to choose between Flynn and Jasper, I'd choose Jasper.  He's less likely to reach for a paddle.

*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?


PAUL!!

*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?


Flynn's first time - because I'm pretty sure it was with either Jasper or Paul (maybe both)

*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?


Break ice for the animals.  I'm staying well away from cougars.

*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?


How about Paul's mac and cheese for supper, and his cinnamon rolls for dessert?

Oooooh I wanna play the Would You Rather Game too!
*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?
 - Brats. Quite a few of the Top personalities would intimidate me in person.
*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?
 -  Hmmm, Riley. Might get some cupcakes that way Wink 
*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?
 - Neither, really, but I'd go with Olivia since we at least now she CAN be civil when you're not Dale.
*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?
 - I want to say riding because I love horses, but then I remembered I'm also afraid of them, which they notice so they get nervous around me too. Then I wanted to say hot springs but I hate getting undressed so.... is leaning on the corral and watching while Flynn or Riley work with some youngsters an option? Or joining Paul in reading next to the springs?
*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?
 -  Miguel and Tazio in Italy! I love pizza, pasta and gelato, while I don't know a single word of French.
*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?
 - Preferably neither, but Jasper. Flynn could make me break out in tears with just a stern look, I'd never be able to accept comfort afterwards, even knowing what a lovely guy he is.
*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?
 -  Paul!!! Then again, I'm rather like Riley when it comes to needing space to be able to sleep, which means we'd both respect each other's side of the mattress, so that might be a good fit too.
*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?
 - Flynn's, since I think it would involve Jasper and/or Paul.
*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?
 - Break ice! Not quite a stressful as hunting a cougar.
*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?
 - Cinnamon rolls.

Incidentally, just a warning, this is turning out to be, we think, the er…. biggest... Christmas story yet. It's kind of leaving story territory and wandering into novella land.

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?
The Tops - I want to see what Jasper does when he is supposedly 'shopping'
*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?
Riley - cupcakes and coffees and fun
*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?
Dale's mother to see if I could understand her, talk to her and perhaps get her to ... adjust?
*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?
Riding!!!  Please - but I'd probably need to ride Nekkid. It's been years...
*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?
Italy I think. But I'd rather go to Ireland or England? 
*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?
Answer 'c': None of the above
*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?
Paul if I wanted to sleep; Riley if I was buzzing and wanted to talk all night.
*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?
Flynn's please.  And / or Jasper's...
*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?
Ice - would rather help the animals.
*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?
Cinnamon rolls for breakfast then mac and cheese for lunch then tea for dinner - as I'd probably still be full.

Incidentally, just a warning, this is turning out to be, we think, the er…. biggest... Christmas story yet. It's kind of leaving story territory and wandering into novella land.

@chrisk3939 - welcome to the forum.  I'm so glad you decided to join in.  I hope we see more of you in the days to come.

I liked your answer to the first question.  I also think it would be interesting to see what Jas is doing when he's supposedly shopping.

Novella, YAY!

And I plan to make the peppermint ornaments; thank you, Dizzy and JL.  

In exchange, since we're all (I think) readers, here's a link to book-based ornaments (trigger warning:  a book IS HARMED in the process, but it's an old, unwanted book):  https://www.gimmesomeoven.com/diy/diy-easy-book-page-ornaments/
Or book-based Christmas trees:  https://creativetryals.blogspot.com/2011/09/book-tree.html  

So I'll go ahead and answer the questions, just for LoyalPainter88's graph, of course.  I'm much too serious a person to answer them for fun.   Wink 

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?
Brats, since I'm a bit more on the toppy side myself.

*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?
Riley.  We could have fun; I'd just feel exasperated with Flynn

*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?
No question; Dale's mother so I could set her straight.

*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?
Again, no question in my mind, hot springs FTW.

*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?
Knowing nothing much about either couple, I choose by location:  Italy it is.

*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?
Option C; I'm not a brat.

*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?
Paul: he'd be more comfortable.

*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?
Though Dale is my favorite character, I think Flynn's first time would be much more revealing.  I suspect that Dale would have had all his barriers up so high that we wouldn't learn much more about him.  But we don't know as much about young Flynn yet, and as others have mentioned, it might include both Jasper's first time and/or intimacy with Paul; a two-fer or a three-fer.  

*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?
I prefer the warm, I'd go for the cougar although I'd be scared.

*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?
Cinnamon rolls.  Mac and cheese is good, but not, in my mind, worth the carbs.  Cinnamon rolls ARE.

Wow, what a great way to get out of spankings!! Just say, "I'm not a brat"!!!
Why didn't I think of that?!

I love reading what everyone has answered to the "Would You Rather Game".
I think a game similar to this, with different questions Wink, for my family to answer at Christmas lunch, would be fun. I'll have to think of questions I don't already know, or think I know, the answers to.

And it's great to see so many members joining in the fun. Welcome @chrisk3939

And I am loving the idea of a novella as well. bouncy

Cheers, must-have-patience Cat

Cat, I love that idea of making something like this for Christmas with the family! Most of ours are all grown up and it makes it harder somehow to come together and have fun without little ones around under foot!

After lunch we set up heaps of activities for the kids while the adults sit around and have a chat. Plus, it's Summer here so all activities are outside.

@ewr, those ornaments are adorable!!  I’ve saved the link and will definitely make them!  I used to get upset at the thought of tearing up books, but I found out that many that are donated to libraries here in the states are often sent to recycling.  What a dilemma for my tree-hugging heart!   On one hand, harming books is a huge no-no.  But recycling is so important!


I think it’s kind of cool that you aren’t a Brat.  I love when the Toppy type people comment.  Always brings something just a touch different to the conversation.  @Missty and @5116sue are Toppy type and have brought up interesting points.


Sheesh, a very long post just to say thank you for the ornament link. I’m going to find a very old, faded book to make one with!


Peace!

I want to add my thanks, for these Links, as well, ewr. But I think I'll use old newspaper, as I sure don't want to cut up my old books. Or old Magazines.

Thanks so much Dizzy for tagging me in this topic. I just simply haven't had the time to enjoy the advent calendar and contributions. I made some time this morning and answered the questions.

*Would you rather spend a day with the FCR Brats or the FCR Tops?
Both would have their merits and humour. Perhaps Brats? I could enjoy their mischief without the responsibility as I would be on holiday.

*Would you rather go shopping with Flynn or go shopping with Riley?
Flynn as he is way out of his comfort zone and thus stroppy and prone to silliness. I do find that endearing in him.

*Would you rather meet Dale’s mother or Flynn’s dad?
Too difficult a choice. I’d like to have them both in my office, I’d have plenty to say to the pair of them.

*Would you rather spend the day at the hot springs or spend the day riding?
Hot springs, love water.

*Would you rather visit Miguel and Tazio in Italy, or Peter and Lewis in France?
I’d have to visit both, wouldn’t want anyone feeling left out and more holidays for me! Then on to Seattle ……

*Would you rather be spanked by Flynn or be spanked by Jasper?
This made me smile as it just wouldn’t happen. Conversely, I could contemplate spanking Flynn perhaps before and after a shopping trip.

*Would you rather share a bed with Riley or share a bed with Paul?
Riley, he’s engaging in so many ways and easy to snuggle up to. I understand that I am at odds with most people’s response to Paul. I admire the man tremendously but I’m wary of him.

*Would you rather read about Dale’s first “intimate” encounter or Flynn’s first time?
Either as both would be irresistibly romantic and passionate to read. I’d need a cup of tea afterwards.


*Would you rather get up during the night to break ice for the animals or spend all night tracking a cougar?
Break the ice. Check the animals then back to the house for a Paul crafted treat and a hot cup of tea.

*Would you rather eat Paul’s cinnamon rolls or his mac and cheese?
Cinnamon rolls, especially after breaking the ice for the animals.

Ranger and Rolf? Hockey tickets to the Stanley Cup and the Queen Mother's best gin if this can be arranged. I believe Sue could be lured through the portal with a properly brewed cup of tea.

I second that and I'll get my daughter to make the tea. She makes the best, or so I've been told. (-;

I'm so glad you got a chance to join in, @5116sue.  There was no pressure, I promise.  Just that I enjoy your posts.


And this one proves exactly why!


Your reply that you would visit both, that you wouldn't want anyone feeling left out, is one of the Toppiest and most endearing one!


Peace to you!
