Funny, it doesn't seem to have caught on. Must not have worked so well. I can relate to the picture of the woman all tangled up, though, especially when the cat gets involved, lol. The back of a chair works fine for me, though.

Wish we could get one at that price also. Find your blog very interesting and informative. Would love to win one of your give-aways.

No kidding -- that's good for a laugh. But, I wish I could get one of those for $2.98!
