Grass

Matty and I bought a bright green rug for our apartment.
( child not included )
My favorite thing about it is that it looks just like grass. We rarely get to see grass in the city!
Now Moo can be a grazing cow,
and I can work and have picnics at the very same time!
Who wants to bring the sandwiches?

I was at an arts show this weekend, and I found a trail of big hippie flowers stuck to the road leading to an alley off the way where there were a few hidden booths. For a moment, I thought it was you, but the artist at the end of the trail, was selling raccoon traps. Welcome to Mississippi, and to my disappointment.
