Sure…golden retrievers don’t drink lemonade but we do know a happy and golden undertaking when we see it. The great state of Utah just legalized lemonade stands and other businesses run by kids.
Who would ever think that necessary?!..seems odd…but now Utah kiddies no longer need a $30 permit to exercise their entrepreneur spirit…earning money to so such things as shoveling snow and setting up a lemonade stand. I’m clapping my paws together for these industrious kids…Utah’s state motto is “industry” and for those adults who passed a good golden rule law for “the Beehive State.”
Get ready to walk your dog to your neighborhood lemonade stand and support those golden kids. Good on ya!
