Flatfooted?, sheesh, unscripted I thought I pulled that together pretty well.

Speaking of unscripted, we're starting a new chapter....


Ahh . . . you cut down the fig tree, cleaned up the yard and covered the bricks on the house with barn boards.  I'll assume you're working on a still.

We're going to make a redneck out of you, yet.

wearing me down....
Pfffff
not with the big Koala (turd)
well, in other news..
I planned to put a rear seat in my VW van last weekend and then discovered that the water pump had Subaru itself
and it needs new rear disc brakes, and other stuff.
so I had to go to a DLRA committee meeting which is in country Victoria.
the only other running vehicle I own with working heater has 3.55:1 diff gears an a 327 with a four barrel rochester carb
so I put on some noise cancelling headphones and filled the tank. about $150 AUD and I was on my way
we had a good meeting and I scored a motor and trans for my old shitbox ute (pickup)
So I posted on facebook that I drove to Castlemaine using noise canceling headphones and $50 of petrol
Carol noted that some of Rods cars cost more than $50 to start ....

I was thinking the same thing - looking for some Eucalyptus or Oxycodone . . .

He can purchase Medical Mary Ann in Washington State.

He can self medicate all he wants at home or in public.

No harm. No arrest. No fines.

No challenge?

Ah, Bo, it became legal yesterday.   :mrgreen: 

And the voters' initiative was heavily updated, pushed forward, criminal penalties downgraded by very liberal house & senate and signed by the un-elected  governor who accepted marijuana industry money for her successful campaign for attorney general.   :-(

That's a good sign Mike, that means the heads are smoking less and paying more attention to what people do in conventional business.

Its odd.  The last pot I smelled was about seven or eight years ago.  It was my kids in the upstairs of the house.  I thought it was the neighbor and never figured it was them until they told me.  Its legal but folks are not lighting up all over the place.
