This is my post for #freewriters Tuesday prompt aristocrat hosted by @mariannewest

Even though being a Lord is not really found to be an aristocrat it will be the closes thing that our family will get to be one.
A few months ago my husband saw where you can buy a very small plot of land in Scotland, I mean VERY small, like one square foot, and by buying this land you are issued a Proclamation saying that you are now a Lord, you can legally put Lord before your name on any documents.

I always find it hard to find something for my son-in-law for Christmas, so I decided that this would be something that he would love, I hope it does not give him a big head.

I typed buying land in Scotland into google and found it. There were some for 70 dollars but that was a little high for me. I kept looking and found one for 40 dollars. They wanted an extra 10 if they sent me the certificate so I decided to not get it, I can print it out.

I bought a pack of fancy paper, which was 4 dollars and now my printer is not working, my husband tried to print something and it came out one big blur. So now to get this printed I will have to take it somewhere and pay them to print it. I think with the paper I bought, I will be over the 10 dollars if I would have had them send it to me. It never pays to be cheap.

I was going to print this one, but I do not know if it will cost more so if it is I will print the shorter version and give it to him.

Thank you, I was going on what google had to say, What are the aristocrat titles?
The five titles of the peerage, in descending order of precedence, or rank, are duke, marquess, earl, viscount, and baron. The highest rank of the peerage, duke, is the most exclusive.

Check your local library. They may offer printing services. Mine has a copier with a USB drive port for digital documents and manual feed tray for fancy paper.

I could not find you, they really need a search button. Here is my invite, https://noise.app/invite/q2uv8jsg but I do not know if it will work for me to find you. I found out today that I have 73 followers but do not know how to tell who they are so I can follow them.
