I saw a thingy in a gardening magazine that advertised what looked like
a sponge on a stick for Round-up-ing weeds without overspray and
thought, oh that's a good idea. I didn't think of it at the time but
yeah, it's a paint roller. I've just been talking about the foxtails,
well I have let the weeds go in my yard too because it's so windy all
the time, why not just take out the roller and a bottle of Round-up and
have at it? Darn it I feel dumb. :-)

For future reference, painting is easy if you use a paint roller. An
12'  x 12 takes about 2 minutes. Twelve square feet would be about 15 
seconds, mostly for pouring the RoundUp on the roller.
