I know babies do much the same thing, Carol Smile
Well, thanks very much for the, oh so graphic, description, accompanied by an image with so much detail, it could have been straight out of The Day of The Triffids. Glad I already had breakfast and Praise The Lord, I didn't see any of these in the kitchen...Tongue
