Miki HokeyMore fun to regift it!! We have a family joke that includes a fruitcake that has been around for a long time. Whoever received it last year has to give it away this year, to someone other than the person who gave it to them. It has been mailed across the country and the Atlantic ocean. It might be nearly time to buy a new fruit brick......4   ·  1 day ago
