I like fruitcake too. A friend of mine sends me one every year from a Texas bakery. It's really good. At first I thought she was trying to tell me something with the fruitcake gift, but now I just chow down happily.
Funny that you bring up soap on a rope. A couple of months ago I was wondering where I could get my hands on some. I had knee surgery and had to use crutches everywhere, even in the shower. If the soap fell out of my hands, I was in trouble. Told my H to get me some soap on a rope and he had a good laugh.
