After today, I have decided what I
want to do with my lottery money.
That is, if I ever win. But I have trouble
with that, because I keep forgetting
to buy the tickets. The King does often,
but I think even he is giving up on it.
I have decided that I want to buy a lawn.
You know one of those that they roll on
to the yard. And I also want to have roll on
flower beds. Supposedly they never get weeds.

the lawn. And just about every where else too.
No, I am not talking about dandelions. The nice
thing about them is, they come, and then with
in a couple weeks they are gone.
Not these. Now, you got to understand, the
King wanted to kill these, but nooooooooo.
I wanted them. With memories of my
childhood in mind, I protested. Remember.
How do you know if you like butter? Do you
remember that as a kid? Hold the flower
under your chin, if it reflects yellow, you
Yes, buttercups, is the flower... the flower/
weed from hell. What started as 2 feet by 2 feet

our lawns, in our flower beds, heading for the
You know, I think I will sit under the gazebo
sipping lemonade, as my gardener takes
care of my yard...yes, that does seem a

to buy the dang lotto ticket.
