Wasn't it Garrison Keillor who joked that there was actually only one fruitcake in the US, and that one kept being re-gifted from person to person over the years?
US? I thought it was the world! I understand that it was brought to the baby Jesus iby the fourth maji. Joseph left it behind when they went to Egypt, Herod found it and gave it to his wife, its been regifted ever since.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!
