One night after a delectable meal that our mom made for the entire family, our dad went out on the back porch for his nightly cocktail.
As he normally does, he made himself a drink plus told us to leave him alone for a short while. Per his request, the lot of us didn’t bother him for at least 30 minutes… This is his nightly routine, so the lot of us were not surprised or anything by the request. Earlier that afternoon, my sister plus her boyfriend had been on the back porch smoking a little marijuana while the sun was about to go down. Knowing our mother was making an important meal for my birthday, they wanted to have the munchies for the occasion. Well, when our dad went outside for his nightcap, he was not really surprised to see that they had a little mess on the handrail where they were talking about their expansion to their growing operation! My sister plus her boyfriend operate a large pot farm on the West Coast plus have started a very successful business. My dad was thinking it would be entirely funny to take the leftovers plus stick it in the same pot as the basil plant our mom had been growing to use for her cooking. A few weeks later, there was a little pot plant that started to sprout. My dad really enjoyed it! He told essentially everyone that he was the original pot farmer in the residence plus that he deserves a great deal of respect for that. Of course, it was all in enjoyable fun plus the lot of us laugh about it every single holiday.
