I wanted to tell you about a dream I had a long time ago


#1

Long ago, I got intro’d to pot. It was a wonderful thing. It was in the early 70’s, and nothing I ever did before or since matched it - it just felt “RIGHT”

That’s an old and long story - sitting on a wall with someone who showed me it.

But when I was young, I always wanted to SEE what these plants looked like. I have always been fascinated by growing plants, my first jalapeno pepper was grown in a apartment in Maryland when I was young…

But the plants never did well except outdoors. When it came to POT - well, I tried to hide my plants (back then we had some fine Columbian coming to Maryland) but my Mom found out about them, and that was the end of that…

I had used some portable metal shelving to make a hollow place where the plants were in the middle next to a window - but she was smart!

~ I remember she asked me if I thought she was stupid - and I told her: “No, but I hoped I could hide it”

What I am telling you now, is that I have no such restrictions, and if things fall apart it would have to be because I was stupid enough to tell anyone else what I was doing.

But I still remember those tiny plants (and God knows full and useful plants would be huge by comparison).

I also once tried again in the first apartment I had with a guy from Arkansas, at the time we were both out in Southern California. But that PRICK stripped the plant when it was barely starting…

So it has been a long time waiting to see what the magic herb really looks like when it grows…

A life time dream, a daydream maybe. But I have since then grown many plants that had nothing to do with Marijuana, and always my thoughts returned to “What does pot look like? Is it beautiful, as I remember? What does it smell like?” And now finally I have a fair chance to see it and experience it…

I just hope nothing happens to !@#$ IT UP!

Now I have that chance, with nothing holding me back - wish me luck!
