I wanted to tag you for the meme, but despise tagging people, so I am delighted you did it too.

I think I may have to add fudgcicle to my current repertoire, except the boys will want one every time I say it. Another part of my evil plan to torture them.

I've made a correction. When I say fiber I mean yarn or specifically wool, and not the stuff that makes you go! Good catch, M-man.

Sure, I'd stick to that story. :)
