No worries, there won’t be a test.

Maine Adult Education offers endless opportunities to  shake your head and say WTF? enrich your mind. Last year there were some fascinating topics:

 

You’re never too old to learn…. Spoons.

You’re never to old to learn…. Potatoes.

You’re never too old to learn…. Ukulele

You’re never too old to learn…. Chakra Toning.

You’re never too old to learn…. Mindfulness.

 

And this year started off with a bang as well…

You’re never to old to learn…. Tin Cans.

 

Today’s selection from the  brochure of the bizarre  curriculum is:

 

weed

 

Yes, you too can have your very own flute made from a pesky weed in your backyard.

To hell with cutting it down…

 

 

Blow into it and start a band.

You’ll be the envy of your friends, I promise.

And in case you’re unfamiliar…

Japanese Knotweed is a large, extremely invasive plant.

It’s almost impossible to get rid of once it takes hold, and ironically… cutting only spreads it.

There really is only one reliable course of action available.

So why not take the class…

And make a flute before it swallows you whole?

  1. Japanese Knotweed reminds me of kudzu, which is native to Japan and China but has invaded the American South.in spades (or rather, without needing spades). I wonder why Knotweed hasn’t followed suit? Maybe because Trump won’t let it in, which would be the first and only good immigration ban he’s instituted.

    1. Kudzu always amazed me. It flows over an area and swallows everything whole. Knotweed is more of a giant bush that just never stops growing. My mil’s place had a huge out of control patch.
