Towards the end of the golf course, Tom hit his ball into
the woods and found it in a patch of pretty yellow
buttercups. Trying to get his ball back in play, he ended
up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch...
All of a sudden .. . ..POOF!!
In a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared.
She said, “I’m Mother Nature!”
“Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups?
Just for doing what you have done, you won’t have any butter
for your popcorn for the rest of your life; better still, you won’t
have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life. As a
matter of fact, you’ll never have any butter for anything the
rest of your life!!!”
Then POOF! . . . she was gone!
After Tom recovered from the shock, he hollered for his friend,
“Fred, where are you?”
Fred yells back, “I’m over here in the pussy willows.”
Tom shouts back, ‘DON’T SWING, Fred;
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON’T SWING!!!”
