    Cool I know this has never happened to anyone else!

    I've had my Fiskars cutting mat set with mat, ruler and rotary cutter for over 10 years...

    When I've ordered speciality rulers, e.g. half-Hexie, quarter inch ruler etc, I know to peel off the backing.

    How is it that today, when I was using my 10+ year old Fiskars 6x24 ruler, I'm bemoaning the fact that it's not transparent... And it hit me... Aha! Maybe there's a paper backing I should have peeled off? And... It sure looks like there is! (And since it's been there 10+ years! now I'm afraid to peel it off!!!)

    So. now... To get up the gumption to peel that thing off!

    I know this hasn't happened to anyone else!

    No, not to me. I've never done anything to exhibit brain dead behavior! Never, not once.

    I must insist you do not ask any of the following for verification:my husband, best friend, stepsons, parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, or anyone who knows me personally.
    If you can't see it from 50 yards away on a galloping horse, it doesn't matter.

    Thanks for the laugh of the day, Ellie.

    True confession time? I agree with Meli 100%.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
