Hey Purp my friend don’t know about where you live but pretty sure you’re melting just like Oklahoma. I can be outside till that stupid humidity hits then my defibrillator and lungs can’t hang .So then I’m stuck inside till sun goes down and that’s not easy with my 2 year old labradoodle. Speaking of 2 year olds ,just kidding Mr. Carter isn’t that old but is he trying to walk yet or staying busy crawling around getting into everything. :rofl::rofl::rofl: I really am growing weed I just have lights off during hot part of day back on at 8 .I’d love to see some pics of Carter when you have time . My friend on here found out she has cancer that was misdiagnosed 8 months ago so week from today will begin 6 weeks at Cancer center taking strong radiation and chemo so spend alot of time texting her but I have not forgot about the ILGM growers .looking forward to hearing from you. :sparkling_heart:

Man life has been absolutely in my ass lately. My father passed about 10-12 days ago. Just been spending time with the family. Hugging and holding and supporting. He had a short bout with an extremely progressive cancer. Went from lungs to stomach to spine and eventually brain. His fight is over though and for that im thankful.

Carter is alright. Growing like a weed. 2 teeth on the bottom are pretty much all he has so far. He’s standing with very little support and beginning to pull himself up on things. Not quite supporting all his weight yet but gives honest effort. Babbling thru whole convos. He can say mama with some ease and has his noises for bottle. He even recognizes the words bottle and diaper :rofl: it’s hilarious but amazing watching the human brain develop.

Took this picture the last time he came to my house. Nothing made him smile like that boy. Wish I had pics of it but my mind is forever imprinted.

Moral of the story? Love ya loved ones while you got them. Give folks they roses while they walk with you… BUT remember fondly when they are gon. No need for sadness. I feel joy and pride and just blessed to have had him in ours lives the time that we did.

Added cuz im kinda in my feelings and need to share :rofl:

That was a sad kinda passing the torch pic. This is the old fella in his prime… i can remember this day 27+ years later

Im so happy i grew into my big ass head :rofl::rofl:

Sure hate to hear that brother. We are definitely sending our condolences.
My mom passed back in March with Brest cancer that went to her brain. She regressed in about 4 months. Last I saw her was at Thanksgiving.
Beautiful son Purp! Take care my friend! :+1:t2::v::sunglasses:

@PurpNGold74 you can learn a lot about a guy scrolling through his journal. You make for a very interesting read bro. I just went through mourning losses, celebrating new family, growth, love,laughter,and banter amongst your growmies. I’m winded after all that lol. But I feel I have a much better appreciation for what makes you YOU. :sunglasses:

Time to reawaken with some sorta epic update!!

Mine was small @Amazon66 My daughter, her BF and my grandson came so did my uncle. Just a small 17lb turkey and the fixings. It was a wonderful but small turkey day. Most of my family is out of town or passed away.
How was your turkey day @PurpNGold74 ? I hope you and the family are doing well. Little purp is getting big, i bet?
