    Y'all can have all the rolling papers you want because after all these years I've finally gotten a side stand & have it mounted. I'm more pleased than a dog with two peckers….Beat that one

    Well, I must say there's nothing like efficiency....I can foretell the future, and see you becoming a very wealthy man indeed.

    I havent accomplished much in life but leaving the burning weed behind in my late 20s has served me well.
    Pot destroys the short term memory, old age the long term memory and that leaves looking for the petcock
    I just set down in the shop.....it is funny but not that funny.

    Look in your off hand.... That's where I sometimes find things which I thought I had set down..walk around for hours digging through things and looking. Age sometimes is cruel.

    But isn't it great looking for things you just put down, I have found so many things that I lost years ago doing that and its always a good time to have that workshop clean up when you forgot where you put something, where that bong now, it was here a minute ago, I am sure I put it over there.

    I look at it like Christmas. You never know what you're going to find next that you've lost for 10 years. Yeah, I gave up the dope (and we know why they call it dope) a very long time ago, that doesn't mean I have to give up the pipe. I'm about to give up the bike though. Too much age here. I was at the Old Dominion 'pony' races (point to point, or rather pint to pint for the younger set) and I could only stand about 2 hours of it. There were some nice fillies there though.
