I literally swore to myself that I'd have to have a look in my supermarket for a new pair the next time that I do my shopping.
I then checked my junk mail and what do you know?
Pruning shears on special from March 17th, 2021:-)
When your kids give you lemons, grow lemons to give back to them in the future;-)
Not only that, but they were selling button mushroom growing kits for $16.99, as if I need more mushrooms around my home right now -
There were even lemon and lime trees for sale.
I had been thinking about buying a lemon or lime tree to plant in my backyard the same day I noticed my pruning shears were broken, too.
My son was over the other day helping me with my computer and he saw the card next to my computer and must have thought I was holding on to the card for sentimental reasons:-)
I could never work out why he gave me a card with lemons (or oranges?) all over it for a Father's Day card, unless it was the cheapest one he could find, or if he was suggesting that life was giving me lemons and he wanted to give me some more, since I knew what to do with them?-)I might have to prune him from my will if he gives me lemons for next Father's Day ... not that there will be much in the will when I go but a home with mushrooms and lemon trees growing in the backyard:-)
