Here a Mint, There a Mint

Everywhere a mint mint! With apologies to Old MacDonald, let's dig a little deeper into the invasive tactics of a delightful herb named Mentha.

Sharon,
Your article was great. I can still remember my father spending a day digging and sifting dirt to get rid of the mint that he had planted in the ground.
However, there is a serious error in your article. Goofy was the TALKING cartoon dog. Pluto was Goofy's dog and didn't talk. (I know, a dog having a dog? Weird.)
I always enjoy your writing. Thanks.

See now, I told you that mythology never made it to the holler I grew up in, and now you know that obviously neither did Pluto nor Goofy. What can I say? I was deprived of all the serious learning and just walked around the edges of it. How incredibly sad.

Coboro, thanks so much for enlightening me, I would never have known otherwise.

Honestly, you just made me laugh out loud!
Love it!
