The best pick-up line, EVER!
or 'How you know you're raising a country boy'......

Sir Laughsalot, my son, takes great pride in our compost pile. He has put himself in charge of emptying the big yogurt container that I use for kitchen scraps.... and if he catches me trying to throw any organic matter in the trash can, he intercedes, saying in an exacerbated voice, "Mommy! You can COMPOST that!!!"

He spends hours gathering grass, pine needles, leaves.... and adds them to the pile and stirs it faithfully with a big stick.

Sir Laughsalot also loves waitresses. Everywhere we eat, he befriends the waitresses with his charming good-looks and friendly banter. Recently, one young, friendly waitress particularly caught his eye.... and when she sat down at the counter to take a lunch break, he saddled up next to her...leaned in close.... smiled, and said with all sincerity, "You wanna share my compost?"

Hi, Blue. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I've been at a conference and have been trying to catch up on email.

I wasn't sure if you meant you wanted a signed copy. For that, you can look at this post in the comment box. Otherwise, it's available from all major on-line booksellers.

Thanks for asking! Hope your dulcimer time is heavenly. :)
