Caught With her plants brown
I heard from Aunt Lou today. She’s the relative who lives in Keokuck, Iowa and raises houseplants. She raises so many plants that entering her home is much like entering the African jungle – impenetrable.
Aunt Lou enters her plants in competition at the county fair and has just solved a problem that could have made her unwelcome in the exhibit building this year.
She has lice. Not Aunt Lou, her plants.
