3-Day Weekend Plantidote 2012-12-07
Quercus pecunia "Lambertus"
Lambert's money tree, peanuts, cabbage, clams, dough, bread, sawbuck, buck, greenback
I'm getting a wee bit tired of all this non stop rain. Finally there was a small break and I went outside. Look what I found growing in the back forty!
This is a special tree grown from a Canadian acorn just for Corrente. If it was not for this site, where would all of us crazy (and I mean that in the nicest way) liberals go? Unfortunately Lambert can't grow this tree in his backyard so he needs his readers to pitch some lucre his way to keep this site growing. Don't wait until Spring, send him some seed money now!
Too bad it's not real, but it does make for a lovely arrangement.
