Collin was concerned.

He pulled me aside and pointed to a sticky note I had put on the fridge - 'go online for weed' . Did he think I could find a connection that way? Time for intervention? In reality, it was a reminder for me to enter my 6'10" weed in the county fair.I've been a little lax in my garden clean up, and now it may pay off. Rumor has it, first place rakes in $5.00. Jeff P. says he can hook me up with some abalone guts that will work wonders, if he can share in the glory. I think I can split the money, but I get the ribbon.

Tracie, I really think you beyond the age of making use of weed. Unless you are going north to Weed, CA. Furthermore, you will need long white "wrapping paper" to roll the weed. Hang in there! Dad

Wow, is Mr. H. savvy as to what to do with weed! No wonder he's so calm all the time.
I can't believe the effort you've made (see picture) to protect this weed. Are you afraid deer are going to eat it?
Good luck at the fair. Will it be in a pot or is the photo documentation?

Hey Dad-What do you know about 'wrapping paper'? I wonder if Weed was ever a popular place to live, simply because of it's name.

Hi Michele-Makes you wonder. Is that how teachers cope with high school students?
Yes, I did take a few minutes to build Fort Knox around the plant. Don't want Bambi feasting on it. Seemed a bit odd to weed around the weed. Miss Shelly says you just bring the thing in a few days before the fair starts - it can even be all dried up. I've spotted a better, fuller speciman on our neighbor's property. Might have to ask permission to steal it.

Except for current population of 3,000 or so it hasn't really been a popular place. Jim Cunningham, among others, was originally from Weed. Do not know if the other type of weed is popular there. We used other things to cope with the students......cannot mention them in a civilized society. Dad

Additionally, I am so calm all the time because of my experiences in helping raise three wonderful daughters. Did not need any additional tranquilizers, just a strong sleeping pill. D

Dad- Funny. Selective hearing may have been helpful also.

Carole is also good at staying up on obscure fair categories. Way to make use of your resources.

Hey Jennifer- I know-she's always so good about getting her kids involved. I may have Meredith make one of those wierd veggie creations...then we can go and see it when it's all wilty.
Do you know if there's a category for someone with the most mushroom like balls growing in their lawn?
