Ok...so...you just gave me an analogy Eve. Aren’t you so happy I have something to expound on??joy

So, I learned to drive on a standard transmission. For the longest time, when I would drive a car that was automatic, I would put left foot up and right hand down to shift! Yeah. Kind of like that Fob thing (I have one of those too by the way and they rock! ) So...we built this muscle memory that someone else was talking about. Or maybe that was on “Breaking Bad” which I was watching last night. Which by the way, you know how shows have those ratings and descriptions about why? Well, for “Breaking Bad” it is “MA” ( likely not me, haha) and it say “Violence, Nudity, Language, Gore, and SMOKING! They don’t italicize smoking but I did for emphasis as I think it is interesting that it is lumped in with “Gore and violence”. I see why it is mentioned with nudity, but gore?  OK, so, where was I? Oh yeah, Marie was trying to explain the Hank had beat up Jesse because of muscle memory, or maybe it was why he pulled his gun or something, but I don’t think that is where I was originally anyway, LOL!joy And since I know you’re about glazing over I better bring this in for a landing! Muscle memory of driving a standard had something to do with quit muscles and smoking but now I forgot!!! Probably cause I killed a bunch of brain cells with the gore and smoking! Either way, I just wrote ALL OF THIS instead of smoking with my morning coffee, joyjoyjoy! I’ll come back if I remember my point....

Happy 13th month Anniversary Susan!!!rose

Omg YOU CRACK ME UP! 
 

So to explain the glazed over look....my mother (miss her dearly) but wow could she turn a short story LLLLLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGGGG....LOL. I will never forger when she found my stash of “funny cigs” .......anyway I had a 3 hour lecture, by the way that jumped all over the place! THANK God I had to go to work.......my lord I was never SO HAPPY to get out of there! I was around 15. She still would have me sitting there at the kitchen table telling me about how harmful it is......little did she know it would be legal in most states......haha mom!

Eve! You’re gonna be excommunicated from Sainthood. Or maybe it’s called de-canonized. Not sure. Will look it up though so I can warn you!joy You were smoking funny cigarettes at 15?? Well, I was too. So maybe that’s why I can’t remember the analogy joy. Yeah, personally, I think weed should be legal everywhere and cigarettes illegal. Maybe. Not really sure I’ve thought about it much. I’m still recovering from Georgie and her gummy excursions. Well, good thing we don’t smoke either now I guess. Smoke in general probably not so good for the lungs. Had my share of smoke around here this year too.

I am not upset about being removed from Sainthood, I only got in because you recommended me. I never applied. I knew I would not get in lol. 
See we started with the illegal stuff, now legalized and will no longer be smoking the legal stuff, what will happen to drug dealers?

Imagine if they make cigarettes illegal........the drug dealers could sell cigs then to people. No tax! Probably be cheaper. 
 

so I rambled... are edibles legal in Oregon? I guess so if aunt was going to town on them. Boy that was an adventure! I remember those POSTS. Haha.....can you laugh yet?

Not sure how I missed this Eve! Sorry!

I was wondering that too. Maybe all the pot dealers work in the weed shops? There are an unbelievable amount of those. Yes, gummies legal, and yes, was Georgie’s choice of “candy”. By like the pound! Lol!

So weed and gummies and cigarettes are all taxed here. Weed stuff pretty high actually. Was one of the selling points to legalize it. The tobacco tax passed here too this past election. There has always been one, but now it is going up two buck more a pack. They will be almost $11 a pack. My old brand are $8.79 now. It is going to include all Bape stuff too. No other sales tax. Maybe alcohol? Not sure. I don’t really buy it except for the gallon of Everclear I got to make hand sanitizer earlier in the Pandemic. Still have a little less than half. That stuff is like over 95% alcohol!! The fumes alone do me in! joy
