Just for laughs...

A fellow named Art walks up to another man in a local supermarket and demands that they guy give him a buck.

"Forget it you bum" says the guy, but as he tries to walk away Art puts his hands around around the guys neck and strangles him to death.

"Charlotte, I do feel blessed that my husband shares my passion for gardening. Your harsh climate in Oklahoma does make it especially challenging for you, but I'm guessing it also makes gardening even more rewarding when your efforts pay off."
