A Confession

For the past several years, my friend Lynden has spearheaded an amazing Easter garden in the Lady Chapel of our church.  This takes a whole lot of work over a few days, and I am happy to help.  Yesterday, we took a break at noon to hear a beautiful concert which was followed by a light lunch.  Lucia came to the concert, and when it was over, I invited her downstairs to lunch.  She said no thank you, she was going to BJ's for a BLT and a glass of wine.  Can you envision Mental P's wheels turning at this point dear reader?

So, off we go.  We had a light lunch.  And perhaps a glass of wine.  For $2, you can roll the dice for a chance at a jar of dollars.  All five dice have to be the same:
So, we had another glass of wine.
Everyone there got another tipple.
Especially that cute man over my shoulder;
I think he was more excited than we were.
It was all on Mental P.
Please do not pay attention to the dirt all over me.
And then I went back to church to finish the garden.
Later, Squazz took me to Dunville's to make my picks
 for this weekend's Master's golf tournament.
And to the market for a Powerball ticket.
He thinks I'm on a roll.

It's a sign.
A sign to drink more wine.
Drinking wine is good.
Drinking wine generates income.
Ah, wine.

How nice of you to share the wealth. I'll take a merlot, please.
