Gotcha on the Jiff (I love that stuff). I can never pick between crunchy/creamy so I alternate.
My brother and I are very close in age too. When we were little we got along great, then we were mortal enemies for our teen years, now we're getting close to 30 and get along pretty well. I think it'll just get better.
And yes, this has nothing to do with saddles, but at least I found some new junk foods to try. I think my man-creature will appreciate that too. Although he probably won't appreciate the extra "padding" that comes with it!
