Creative Country Cactus
I think I found my niche in life. Everyone around here is making money off the oil boom. It's killing me because I'm not getting a cut sooo. When I go to Wal*Mart I always park at the end of the store by the garden shop so I can find my truck easy. I'm not completely senile but just a little stunted in the brain sometime. As I was walking out today out of the corner of my eye in the corner I spotted some cactus plants for sale. Humm I've got to check out the price here, So I parked my buggy (shopping cart) to investigate. Just about a foot and ahalf high, not very wide and in a plain black plastic container with a price tag of $22.95. We've got the cactus and we could think up some cheap containers that look better then those. Maybe paint some cans or find something someone uses a lot of and throws away. We could take tiny pins and attach little red bows or flowers or find cheap cowboy things at the Dollar Store. The ideas are limitless. Can't wait to get home to tell John about our new business. You know he is always a kill-joy. And where are you going to sell these he has the nerve to ask. Well I was thinking of a stand on the side of the road with no overhead or rent. His answer was I'm not sitting on the side of the road in this heat to sell cactus. Well I just though all the new people here in town would like a little cactus plant in front of their trailer or RV to make it look homey while they are in Texas working. Don't tell John's cattle I was thinking of selling their winter food. A roadside stand would be pretty hot and you can't help but get those little thorns in your fingers when you work with them. I had better leave the cactus selling to Wal*Mart.
