I was just talking to my bff yesterday about that moose track ice cream - please tell me the moose tracks aren't the trails of fudge.

Jenny said...

There's fudge and chocolate chunks and nuts and it's all yummy :-)

The cherry stem thing still amazes me!!! LOL

Jenny said...

I was watching Johnny Carson one night while I was in college and this lady in the audience won dinner for two at some restaurant because she could do it. I thought, "I'll bet I could do that" and tried it. It was harder than I thought but I learned how. Also learned how to cut a deck of cards with one hand. Remind me and I'll show you next time we get together.
