Shout Out

Question of the Week

Is fruitcake GOOD or EVIL?

Answer of the Week

  • If you ask my husband, it’s good.  I’ve already bought him a few.  He eats them every year.  I however try it every year thinking it will be better because I want to like it, but I just don’t.  I try, I really do.
  • What books do you like to read? I like spy/detective/action thrillers, but I don’t do much reading these days.

  • Still loving that cowl! I drank my morning coffee and knitted on my Piper’s Journey while viewing the podcast and it was like having a friend over (at 2 a.m. – couldn’t sleep). And I’m so proud of you for at least TRYING fruitcake…
