    1. Hi Kathy,

      I know exactly what you mean. I used to love Spirograph as a child, it was one of those toys of which I never tired, especially when I discovered the very large pens, which used to have multi-coloured nibs built in, so that I could change the colour of my design with the flick of a finger!

      Thanks for the memory,

      Yvonne

  2. Hi Mary Ann,

    Whilst I know of the word inculcate, your word inculpate is completely new to me and came as a nice surprise.

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your week.
